Mega Millions Winner in KS Still Unknown to Lottery Officials


TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — Kansas Lottery officials say the holder of the state's winning Mega Millions ticket has not come forward to claim a share of the $656 million jackpot.  Lottery spokeswoman Cara Sloan-Ramos said today (MON) that no one has contacted the lottery about the prize from Friday's drawing. The winning ticket was purchased in northeast Kansas, though lottery officials don't plan to identify the store until the winner comes forward.  Winning tickets also were sold in Illinois and Maryland, making the Kansas ticket worth about $218 million.  Kansas law gives a prize winner a year to claim a jackpot, and it allows winners to remain anonymous.  The prize must be claimed either at the Kansas Lottery's headquarters in Topeka or at its regional office in Great Bend.
