    BENNINGTON — Vermont Lottery officials announced Monday that a $10,000 Mega Millions ticket was sold at Stewart’s Ice Cream in Bennington.

    The winning ticket matched four out of five numbers plus the Mega Ball for the Feb. 8 drawing.

    Lottery officials said the manager of the store, John Lybert, said it was “really great” that the store sold a winning ticket.

    “I’m very surprised and wish it were me,” Lybert said.

    There was no winner on Feb. 8. Today’s jackpot is estimated at $13 million.

    Vermont Lottery games are sold at almost 700 locations throughout the state. For information on lottery games and on-line game draw results, visit the website at www.vtlottery.com.
