(AP) — Maine scored its first Mega Millions jackpot when a ticket purchased in the state matched the winning numbers for the lottery’s estimated $1.35 billion grand prize.
The Maine State Lottery says the winning ticket was sold at Hometown Gas & Grill in Lebanon, Maine.
The lucky combination of numbers drawn late Friday night were: 30, 43, 45, 46, 61 and gold Mega Ball 14.
The winner, whose name is not yet known, overcame steep odds of 1 in 302.6 million, which led to three months of drawings without a claim on the jackpot.
The jackpot was the second largest prize for a Mega Millions player.
