A Mega Millions ticket worth $250,000 from the lottery's Tuesday drawing was sold in York County.

The winning ticket was purchased at Choice Tobacco Outlet along U.S. Route 15 in Dillsburg, the Pennsylvania Lottery announced Wednesday.

The winning ticket correctly matched all five white balls, 09-13-22-38-52, but not the yellow Mega Ball 44, for a prize of $250,000, less 25 percent federal withholding.

The store will receive a $500 bonus for selling the winning ticket, which was purchased Monday.

Lottery officials cannot confirm the identity of the winner until the prize is claimed and the ticket is validated. Pennsylvania Lottery Mega Millions winners have one year from the drawing date to claim prizes.

The Lottery encourages the holder of the winning ticket to sign the back of the ticket, call the Lottery at 717-702-8146 and file a claim at Lottery headquarters in Middletown, Dauphin County, or at any of Lottery's seven area offices.

Claims may be filed at Lottery headquarters Monday through Friday, from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., and from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. at area offices.
