POST FALLS, Idaho -- The nation's eyes are on the Inland Northwest.  Two people had all the right numbers to win the $380 million dollar Mega Millions jackpot.  One was sold in Ephrata, Washington and the other in Post Falls, Idaho.  The winners will split the prize.  While the Ephrata winner has stepped forward, there's still no word on the identity of the Post Falls winner.  And that has a lot of people playing the guessing game.

Post Falls is a small town with a population of around 26,000.  People are scrambling to see if they have the winning ticket.  The Idaho Lottery office has confirmed the second winning ticket.  But it is staying tight lipped on an exact Post Falls location.  It's causing rumors to run rampant.  People want to know where the ticket was bought and does the person even know he or she picked the winning numbers.

Friends and neighbors are calling each other wondering if they now live next to a multi-millionaire.  Even though the numbers have been drawn, people are trying their odds even further.  They say they are buying more tickets from vendors in Post Falls.

The winner has 180 days to claim their prize in Boise.  There is also a chance the Mega Millions winner does know and is just very good at keeping a secret. 
 
If you are the winner, be sure to sign the ticket.  Lottery winners’ names become public record.  Once the winnings are claimed, Post Falls and the rest of the nation will know the identity of the new millionaire.
