Someone won millions of dollars after purchasing a Tri-State Megabucks ticket Saturday at a Freeport gas station and convenience store.

The Megabucks jackpot was worth an estimated $3.4 million if paid out in annuities over 30 years, according to the Maine Lottery.

“The winning ticket was sold at Circle K on Route 1 in Freeport. Check your tickets,” the Maine Lottery said in a Facebook post Saturday evening.

An employee at the Irving/Circle K store who answered the phone Tuesday evening said the winner has not come forward yet. The gas station is located on Route 1, near Interstate 295, and at the gateway to downtown Freeport and the L.L. Bean retail store.

The Circle K store sells gas as well as soda, chips, magazines and hot food items such as hot dogs and pizza slices.

Circle K, as do all lottery agents, will receive a portion the winning ticket, but the exact amount could not be determined Tuesday night.

In 2015, lottery retail agents statewide received over $16.5 million in total commissions and bonuses. Since the lottery started more than 40 years ago, more than $335 million in commissions and bonuses have been paid out, according to the Maine Lottery.

Maine Lottery officials could not be reached for additional details Tuesday night, but on Facebook, the agency said, “What a week it has been.”

Maine Lottery officials said someone won $1 million in the Mega Millions contest on April 25. In addition, there was a $200,000 winner in the Powerball game April 26 and a $1 million winner in the Ultimate Millions instant game the week before last.
