(Harrisburg) -- The Pennsylvania Lottery says a Mega Millions ticket worth as much as $152 million was sold in Northumberland County.

Lottery officials say the ticket would be the fourth-largest cash prize in Pennsylvania Lottery history if the winner accepts the $91 million cash value of the ticket. The annuity value is $152 million.

It's the largest Mega Millions ticket prize ever won in Pennsylvania, since the state joined Mega Millions in 2010, and just the second jackpot-winning ticket sold in the state. The lottery is required to subtract 25 percent in federal withholding taxes from the cash prize.

A lottery spokesman says the ticket was sold at the Penn 80/Flying J Travel Plaza in Milton.

As of this afternoon, nobody had produced the winning ticket.
