A tiny store in SC, is now considered the luckiest spot in America after it sold the winning $1.6 billion Mega Millions lotto ticket. It matched the first five numbers drawn Tuesday night but missed on the Mega Ball number.
Wednesday's winning numbers were 03-21-45-53-56 and the Powerball was 22.
Saturday's jackpot is now up to $750 million.
The Super Kansas Cash jackpot for tonight's drawing is the second largest ever at $3.19 million.
Sales in Massachusetts for Wednesday's Powerball drawing, when the jackpot was about $620 million, totaled about $7.1 million, significantly less than the total sales for Tuesday's near-record Mega Millions drawing, which totaled almost $21 million in Massachusetts, Teja said. Most people can't even begin to comprehend that amount of money, but someone, somewhere, holds the sole MegaMillions lottery ticket worth that jackpot.
A single ticket sold in SC matched all numbers in the historic drawing to make the lucky holder of the ticket rich beyond belief. Sales reached almost $740 million during that time, lottery officials said. The cash option is now $428.6 million.
A yet to come forward local in SC could be more than one billion dollars richer after purchasing a winning ticket in this week's Mega Millions jackpot.
So grab those tickets: These are the winning numbers for the $602.5 million Powerball jackpot for Wednesday, Oct. 24 - the third largest in the game's history - which were announced at 8 p.m.
He told the staff "he was on his way to buy a lottery ticket and he was disappointed that he didn't get it", the man's niece, Bobbie Mickle, said, WCAU-TV reports. "Take a deep breath and enjoy the moment!" The state is set to receive about $70 million stemming from the win.
That person beat the odds of 1 in 302,575,350 to win.
