CAMBRIDGE CITY, Ind. -- The luckiest town in America this weekend has to be Cambridge City, Indiana. That’s because the winning Mega Millions ticket worth an estimated at $540 million was sold at the Speedway gas station at State Road 1 just off I70 Friday night.

We're told one ticket purchased there at around 10 p.m. Friday matched all 6 numbers.

The Hoosier Lottery tells us no one has come forward yet to claim the winnings from last night’s drawing. The Speedway in Cambridge City is also a big winner.

They will get $100,000 for selling the jackpot ticket. One man who was here buying lottery tickets was surprised to hear the big Mega Millions winner was sold here. “I had no idea the jackpot winner was in this store- And hopefully he’s a fellow Hoosier,” said Dan Cotton from Lafayette.

The winner can take a one time lump sum estimated payment of $380 million, before taxes, or a 30-year annuity.

Mega Millions is played in 44 states along with the District of Columbia and the U.S. Virgin Islands.

The Mega Millions jackpot odds are 1 in 259 million.
