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 game's history, 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 most enormous 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.
But, no one has yet come forward to claim the winnings, a Pennsylvania lottery spokesperson told ABC News Saturday.
