A single ticket matching all six numbers in this week's Mega Millions jackpot worth an estimated $105 million was purchased in Virginia, lottery officials said.

The winning numbers from Friday's drawing were: 12, 17, 30, 35, 47, and mega ball number 26.

The winning ticket was purchased at a Giant Food store in Herndon, Va., according to the Virginia Lottery website.

The store will get a $50,000 bonus, according to lottery officials.

The holder of the winning ticket could choose to take the entire jackpot amount in 26 annual payments or a single cash option of an estimated $68.1 million.

Friday's jackpot is one of the largest won this year.

In March, several New York state government workers won a $319 mega millions jackpot.

In January, two tickets holders from Washington and Idaho split a $380 million jackpot.

Next Tuesday's drawing is estimated to be $12 million with a lump sum cash option of $7.6 million. It will roll over to the next drawing if there is no winner.

The biggest jackpot game in the nation, Mega Millions is played in 41 states and in Washington, D.C.

Other smaller jackpots range from $2 to $250,000, depending on how many numbers are matched.

The biggest Mega Millions jackpot ever won was $390 million in March 2007.
