A winning Mega Millions jackpot ticket worth an estimated $515 million was sold in Pennsylvania, making it one of the largest lottery jackpots in the history of the game, lottery officials announced Friday.
The winning numbers were 6-9-17-18-48, with 8 as the Mega Ball. If the winner chooses the cash option, the ticket is worth $348.6 million.
This is the third time someone in Pennsylvania has won a Mega Millions jackpot since the lottery game began in 2002. A Pittsburgh man won a $149 million prize back in 2014. Later in 2015, a $153 million winning jackpot ticket was bought by a Virginia truck driver while on his route in Pennsylvania.
But Friday's winning jackpot is the largest amount won in the state since it became a Mega Millions participant in 2010.
It is also the ninth-largest jackpot awarded in the history of the game.
The location in Pennsylvania where the latest jackpot winning ticket was sold has not been disclosed.
Friday’s Mega Millions jackpot win was the first since Feb. 16, when a New York couple won $96 million. Another Mega Millions jackpot prize, worth $1 billion, was also collected by a group of players in Michigan on Jan. 22.
