You didn’t become an instant multimillionaire in Tuesday’s Mega Millions jackpot drawing?
No sweat, there’s always Wednesday night’s estimated $620 million up for grabs in Powerball winnings.
While one ticket was sold in South Carolina, overcoming unbelievable odds to win the Mega Millions jackpot of more than $1.5 billion, there’s still time to cash in on a hefty amount when the numbers are called for the next Powerball drawing.
What were the odds of winning the $1.5 billion? Lottery officials say one in 302.6-million.
It marked the first winning ticket since July 24 and now Mega Millions will reset to its baseline $40 million for its game on Friday.
Lottery officials say it was the largest jackpot in the United States won by a single ticket, and it’s the nation’s second-largest jackpot ever.
The winning numbers were 5, 28, 62, 65 and 70, with a Mega Ball of 5 and were sold at a gas station and convenience store in upstate South Carolina.
Now the big question remains. Who won the giant prize? The winner, likely taking a deep breath, hasn’t come forward yet.
