$260 million winning Mega Millions ticket sold in Illinois


BLUE ISLAND, Ill. (AP) -- The Illinois Lottery says a winning $260 million Mega Millions ticket was purchased at a supermarket in the Chicago suburb of Blue Island.

The lottery said Wednesday morning that the ticket was a winner in Tuesday night's drawing. The winner hasn't come forward.

The ticket was bought at Super Mercado Imelda and matched all six winning numbers: 2, 9, 11, 22, 23 and 12. The retailer will receive $500,000 for selling the winning ticket.

Winners have one year from the drawing date to claim the prize.

The Blue Island ticket is the second Mega Millions win in Illinois so far this year. A Naperville resident won a $270 million Mega Millions jackpot in January with a ticket bought in Glendale Heights.
