EPHRATA, Wash. (AP) -- Idaho Lottery officials say the second of two winning Mega Millions tickets was sold in the northern Idaho town of Post Falls.
The other winning ticket was sold about 150 miles west at a Safeway supermarket in the eastern Washington town of Ephrata.
The winners have not yet stepped forward.
Because of feverish sales before Tuesday night's drawing, Washington Lottery Spokesman Scott Kinney says the winners will now share a $380 million jackpot, an increase over the previous $355 million estimate.
The two winning tickets from Tuesday are each worth $190 million paid in 26 annual installments. Idaho Lottery Commission Director David Workman says each lucky winner also has the option of taking an $81 million lump sum payment. is happy to provide a forum for commenting and discussion.
