LEBANON, MAINE, Maine — The winning ticket for a $1.35 billion Mega Millions jackpot was sold in Lebanon, Maine. Fewer than 6,500 people live in the town.
The winning numbers were 30-43-45-46-61. The gold Mega Ball was 14. The winner has not been identified.
This was the second-largest Mega Millions jackpot and fourth-largest lottery prize in the history of the U.S. There were 25 straight drawings without a winner in three months.
