PORT RICHEY — A 7-Eleven in Pasco County sold the winning lottery ticket for $450 million, the Florida Lottery announced Saturday.
The winning Mega Million jackpot ticket was sold at the 7-Eleven at 7131 Ridge Rd. The winning numbers were 28, 30, 39, 59, 70 and the Mega Ball was 10.
The Pasco ticket matched all five numbers and the Mega Ball from Friday night’s drawing.
The winner has 180 days from the date of the drawing to claim the prize and only 60 days to claim the prize as a lump sum of $281.2 million.
The 7-Eleven that sold the ticket will get $100,000 commission.
The Pasco County player is the only winner of the fourth largest Mega Millions jackpot in the Florida Lottery’s history.
