BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - Lottery officials in North Dakota say a Williston resident has claimed the largest lottery prize ever won in North Dakota.

The man, who officials say has chosen to remain anonymous, claimed the $3 million prize Friday. The Mega Millions ticket for the Tuesday draw was sold at a gas station in Williston.

A Powerball prize worth $1 million was also claimed Friday. A group from Jamestown won the prize in the April 20 draw.

Lottery officials say the Powerball prize is the fourth largest prize won in North Dakota Lottery history. The winners also chose to remain anonymous.

The Mega Millions jackpot for Friday’s draw is about $187 million, while the Powerball jackpot for the Saturday’s draw is estimated at $70 million.
