    You might be a millionaire!

    That’s because a $1 million Mega Millions ticket for last week’s drawing was sold at a Montgomery County convenience store.

    According to the Pennsylvania Lottery, the 7-Eleven on Sandy Hill Road in Norristown, Pa. sold the ticket that matched all five numbers (23-29-32-45-46) but not the Mega Ball (15) in Friday night's drawing.

    That means the holder of the ticket will get a $1 million prize. The 7-Eleven store also gets $5,000 for selling the ticket.

    Lottery officials urge the holder of the ticket to sign the back of the ticket and then call state lotto offices at 717-702-8146.

    The winner also should be prepared to pay 25 percent federal withholding taxes as well as local earnings, according to the lottery.

    No tickets hit the jackpot Friday meaning that Tuesday's Mega Millions drawing has swelled to $195 million.
