A lottery official says 1 jackpot-winning ticket was sold in Friday night's Mega Millions drawing.

Virginia Lottery spokesman John Hagerty tells The Associated Press the ticket was sold in Indiana.

Friday's jackpot was worth an estimated $540 million.

An estimated $1 billion in tickets have been sold since the last jackpot-winning ticket was drawn in early March. This is the longest Mega Millions run without a winner.

Tickets are sold in 43 states, the District of Columbia and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
