South Carolina (AP) - Officials with the Mega Millions lottery game say just one ticket hit all the numbers drawn for Tuesday night's $1.6 billion jackpot.
That ticket was sold in South Carolina. The massive jackpot was the world's largest grand prize ever. It grew that big because no one had hit all the numbers since July.
The numbers drawn were 5, 28, 62, 65, 70 and the Mega Ball is 5. It wasn't until 4 a.m. before the lottery game confirmed a winning ticket had been sold.
No details on where in South Carolina the ticket was sold were immediately available. The chance of winning the top prize is one in 302.5 million. The game is played in 44 states, Washington, D.C., and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
Friday night's Mega Millions jackpot will go down to $40 million. Lottery players are now turning their attention to Wednesday night's drawing with an advertised jackpot of $620 million ($354.3 million for the cash option).
