MT. AIRY, MD- A $26 million Mega Millions ticket was sold at a Mt. Airy Shell gas station and its owners are thrilled to be the lucky location.

Fate visited the Shell station on Lakeview Drive and left a $26 million Mega Millions ticket.

"I play quite often, usually only hit one number," says lottery player Ralph Harris. "So what I would do with $26 million at this point I don't know."

It's the biggest of several wins in western Maryland since the beginning of the year. A Powerball ticket was sold in Boonsboro and and Multi Match jackpot came out of Middletown.

"More people will feel like this is the lucky station," says owner Moynul Mozumder. "They'll come to buy from us."
