Mega Millions Winning Number: The Latest on a winning ticket sold for the Mega Millions jackpot worth an estimated $540 million (all times local):

11:40 a.m.:

The Hoosier Lottery says the winning ticket for the Mega Millions jackpot worth an estimated $540 million was sold at a gasoline station in eastern Indiana.

Hoosier Lottery spokesman Dennis Rosebrough says the ticket for Friday’s drawing was sold at a Speedway station along Interstate 70 in Cambridge City, a town of about 2,000 residents 50 miles east of Indianapolis.

A person who answered the phone at that store directed calls to Marathon Petroleum’s corporate headquarters. A spokesman, Brandon Daniels, says the company has no comment.

Because the Speedway location is along a busy highway, Rosebrough says the person who bought the ticket may not be from Indiana. He says ”we know the ticket was sold in Indiana, but being on I-70, who knows who bought it?”

7:33 a.m.

A lottery official says a jackpot-winning Mega Millions ticket worth an estimated $540 million was sold in Indiana.

Virginia Lottery spokesman John Hagerty tells The Associated Press it was the only jackpot-winning ticket in Friday night’s Mega Millions drawing.

The consortium of lottery organizations that runs Mega Millions said a ticket matching all five white balls and the yellow ball would win an estimated $540 million.

The winning Mega Millions numbers are white balls 8-19-20-55-73 and yellow ball 5.

An estimated $1 billion in tickets have been sold since the last jackpot-winning ticket was drawn in early March. This is the longest Mega Millions run without a winner.

Tickets are sold in 43 states, the District of Columbia and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
