Beating the odds: $1.5B MegaMillions jackpot won by single ticket

South Carolina adds 2nd billionaire with huge jackpot ticket

A KC Mart convenience store sold the ticket that won a $1.5 billion jackpot, Simpsonville Mayor Janice Curtis said in a telephone interview on Wednesday.

Only one ticket matched all six numbers in the Mega Million drawing on Tuesday night.

Arizona Lottery officials said a winning ticket for the $1 million Powerball and another for $50,000 were sold in Surprise on Wednesday.

Mr Patel said he has no idea who bought the winning ticket but hopes they keep coming back. SC is one of eight states where lottery winners can keep their anonymity.

Another $1 million winning lottery ticket was sold in Kentucky.

The lucky person can also take an $1.24 billion lump-sum cash payment, which most winners choose to receive. The rest of the numbers on the ticket are just one number off.

The victor has 180 days to claim the prize, Armstrong said. There were approximately 370 million tickets sold across the game's 46 states and jurisdictions during the four-day period leading up to the drawing. The jackpot for the in-state Megabucks Doubler is at $3.7 million for Wednesday's drawing, officials said.

Although Tuesday's jackpot was very big, it's no fluke.

According to the lottery, more than 205,000 Louisiana residents won cash prizes during Tuesday night's drawing. One went to Jennifer Santo, a nurse from Dartmouth, and the other has yet to be claimed.

Unlike the Mega Millions, whose odds were 1 in 302 million, the Powerball has better chances of 1 in 292.2 million. "Now I know y'all have it!"
