The single winning ticket in Tuesday night's Mega Millions drawing — for a jackpot of $26 million — was purchased at a gas station in Mount Airy, according to lottery officials.

The top tier ticket was bought at the Mount Airy Shell station in the 600 block of Lakeview Drive, which is in Frederick County, according to Erica Palmisano, a lottery spokeswoman.

No one had claimed the winnings, which can also be taken as a $19 million cash payout, as of Wednesday morning, shortly before the lottery's claim center opened at 8:30 a.m., Palmisano said.
