BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - The North Dakota Lottery says a winning Mega Millions ticket worth $3 million was sold in Williston.

Lottery officials say it marks the largest prize won in the history of the North Dakota Lottery. No one has yet come forward yet to claim the prize.

The ticket matched all five white balls for a $1 million prize, but the buyer purchased a Megaplier for $1 more and the draw of a “3” tripled the prize’s value. It was sold at Kum & Go on 2nd Street West, which will receive a $5,000 bonus for selling the winning ticket.

The numbers were 17, 24, 27, 48, 75, and the Mega Ball was 6.

The Mega Millions jackpot for Friday’s drawing is $187 million.
