Single ticket wins record $1.537 billion Mega Millions jackpot in South Carolina

Postby Blue Jackets » Wed Oct 24, 2018 7:11 am

One winning ticket was sold for the record Mega Millions jackpot of what turned out to be just under $1.6 billion. The winning ticket was purchased in South Carolina.
The six winning numbers were drawn Tuesday night. On Wednesday morning, lottery officials said in a statement that the jackpot was worth $1.537 billion, more than $50 million less than the previously estimated jackpot of $1.6 billion.

South Carolina lottery officials also said that the holder or holders of the winning ticket has 180 days to claim the prize and can stay anonymous. The retailer where the ticket was sold gets a $50,000 cut once the prize is claimed.

Of our 35 tickets last night I think I matched 3 numbers, no 2 numbers on a single ticket.

I had 2 matching numbers out of my 5 lines, not in the same line. It's almost like the odds of winner are really small.
