"I really do hope it was one of our locals — someone that comes in on a regular basis and, hopefully, deserves it very much," Vanderwiede said, estimating that about 80 percent of her customers at the 7-Eleven are regulars.

In case you bought a ticket at the store, here are the winning numbers: 28, 30, 39, 59, 70 and a Mega Ball of 10. It’s the fourth-largest Mega Millions jackpot in the game’s history.
Having a winner means a lot to the owner of the 7-Eleven as well: they’ll be paid $100,000 for selling the ticket.
The winner has 180 days after the drawing to claim their prize. However, in order to get the one-time lump sum cash option, which comes to a cool $281.2 million, the winner must file their claim within 60 days. The clock is ticking.
However, it's apparently not unusual for a big winner to take a little time to come forward. Don Creley, the district manager of the Florida State Lottery, told ABC News Monday, that it's actually "quite unusual" for a winner to claim the prize in the first few days after the drawing.
Whoever it is will be travel to Florida’s capital of Tallahassee to file the claim at the district office, Creley told ABC News. He said winners typically get their money within 24 hour of filing the claim. Once the person comes forward, officials will release their name, age and city of residence.
“This is gonna be great for the store, great for publicity, great for customer service,” Vanderwiede said.
Now all they need is for the winner to step forward and claim the mega prize.
