The winning ticket was sold at a 7-Eleven in Levittown, Bucks County.

The chances of winning the Mega Millions jackpot are about 1 in 302 million.

This is the third and largest Mega Millions jackpot won in Pennsylvania since the state joined the game 11 years ago. It's also the ninth-largest jackpot awarded since the game began almost two decades ago.

The lottery says this Mega Millions jackpot run that started in February and stretched on through May generated $41.5 million in sales, which created a profit of $16.6 million to benefit older Pennsylvanians.
