Single Ticket Wins Mega Millions Jackpot

One winning ticket was sold for the record Mega Millions jackpot of 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 Education Lottery officials aren’t releasing the address yet of the outlet that sold the winner. They cited “security procedures.”
