Lottery officials say big winners often seek advice from financial advisers before stepping forward to claim winning tickets.

State Lottery officials in Maryland say they're still waiting for a winner to emerge from last week's Mega Millions jackpot drawing. Maryland Lottery Director Stephen Martino says rumors have been flying since Friday's drawing, and it's time to separate fact from fiction.

"To be clear, no one has approached the Maryland lottery to claim this ticket."

The winning ticket is worth $105 million after taxes. It was sold at the Milford Mill 7-Eleven, and though a Baltimore woman claims she's the one who bought it, so far, Martino says he's seen no evidence of that.

"There are many people who believe that the ticket has been claimed. Here's the fact: The ticket hasn't been claimed. No one has contacted us. We look forward to the day when the winner comes forward and we get an opportunity to meet them and listen to their story," says Martino.

He's urging people to search their pockets and examine their tickets, because the winner could still be out there.

The winner has until September 28 to claim the jackpot. Otherwise, Martino says, the money goes back into a fund that can be used for future drawings.
