JAMESTOWN, N.D. (AP) - North Dakota Lottery officials say a Mega Millions ticket worth $250,000 was sold at a Jamestown grocery.

The ticket matched all five white balls, but not the Megaball, to win the game's second-tier prize in the Tuesday drawing.

Lottery Director Randy Miller says the odds of winning the prize are 1 in 3.9 million. The winner has 180 days to claim the prize.

Mega Millions is played in 41 states and the District of Columbia. The jackpot for the next drawing, on Friday, is about $54 million.
