MERRITT ISLAND, Fla. – A Brevard County gas station is about to get a mega bonus check.

On Thursday, the Florida Lottery will make a check presentation at the Merritt Island Sunoco Gas Station located at 600 S. Courtenay Parkway after the store sold one of two winning Mega Millions tickets.

The owner of the store will be presented with a check for $100,000.

Since the drawing last month, the lucky Merritt Island winner has yet to come forward. The ticket holder could get a lump sum option of roughly $112 million before taxes. After taxes, that's about $74 million.

The jackpot was the sixth-largest lottery prize in U.S. history.

The second winning ticket was sold in Maryland.
