TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) _ Kansas officials still haven't heard from
anyone claiming to hold a Mega Millions ticket for a share of a
$656 million jackpot.

Kansas Lottery spokeswoman Cara Sloan-Ramos said Tuesday the
winner may wait weeks to come forward. Kansas law allows up to a
year to claim a lottery prize.

The ticket was for Friday's drawing in the multistate game, and
state lottery officials have said only that it was purchased at a
store in northeast Kansas. Winning tickets also were sold in
Illinois and Maryland, making the Kansas ticket holder's share
about $218 million.

Sloan-Ramos said the ticket holder is likely seeking lots of
advice and considering whether to take advantage of a Kansas law
allowing winners to remain anonymous.
