Georgia's Education wins big due to Mega Millions Historic Jackpot

A single ticket holder in SC will claim that bounty, Mega Millions said on its website. Those tickets matched four of the first five numbers and had the Megaball number. The Whistle Stop will receive a $10,000 bonus for selling the winning ticket.

Wednesday night's $620 million Powerball jackpot looks sort of puny given all the attention lavished on the $1.537 billion Mega Millions jackpot won in SC on Tuesday.

The six winning numbers drawn on Tuesday night were 5, 28, 62, 65, 70 and 5 again as the special Mega Ball.

Given the missed estimate, the top prize remains a $1.586 billion Powerball jackpot shared by winners in California, Florida and Tennessee in January 2016. "We're so happy for the victor, and we know the South Carolina Education Lottery can't wait to meet the lucky ticket holder".

But when the jackpot was finalised, it was downgraded to US$1.537 billion.

Until now the USA record jackpot was $1.586bn for a different lottery, called Powerball, in 2016.

"It was heartbreaking to know I was only one number away from the big one, or even a $3 million win", said Rosa when he claimed his prize at the Lottery offices in Boise this morning. But say, of the $492 million jackpot after taxes in SC, you chose to invest $475 million and not touch it.

Even if a lottery victor goes for annual payments and invests most of their take each year, the grand total would be less over the course of 30 years compared to the lump sum. The victor also has up to 180 days to claim the prize.

David Kramer, an attorney in Omaha, Nebraska, said he buys a lottery ticket when the jackpot soars for "the three days of daydreaming it gives me of what I'd do with the money if I won". It reflects a trend toward ever-growing lottery prizes due to changes that worsened the odds with hopes of bigger jackpots and better sales. The estimated prize for Powerball's annuity option in tonight's drawing is $620 million, with a cash prize of $354.3 million.

"Sell me another lucky one". She bought her million-dollar ticket at the Cumberland Farms store on Main Street in Bridgewater, said Christian Teja, spokesman for the Massachusetts State Lottery.
