Ticket bought in Indiana wins $540 million Mega Millions jackpot – Chicago Tribune

Residents of a small Indiana town were abuzz with excitement Saturday after learning that the only winning ticket for a Mega Millions jackpot worth an estimated $540 million was sold at a local gas station.

Dennis Rosebrough, a Hoosier Lottery spokesman, said the winning ticket for Friday’s drawing was sold at a Speedway station along Interstate 70 in Cambridge City, a community of about 2,000 residents 50 miles east of Indianapolis

A person who answered the phone at that store directed calls to Marathon Petroleum’s corporate headquarters. A spokesman, Brandon Daniels, said the company had no comment.

Mark McCarty, the president of the town council, said he hopes the winner is from Cambridge City or another nearby community in the area locals call “Antique Alley” because of its many antique shops. He said if the winner is a local it likely won’t take long for word to spread about who it is.
