NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — The Tennessee Lottery says a winning Mega Millions ticket worth $61 million was sold in Bellevue.
Lottery spokeswoman Kym Gerlock said officials are still trying to verify the exact location where the winning ticket was sold.
It is the first time a ticket sold in Tennessee hit the Mega Millions jackpot since the state began participating in the multi-state game in January 2010. Gerlock says the winner has 180 days to come forward.
The winner numbers of Friday night's drawing were 22-24-25-40-70 and the Mega Ball was 5.
