You Probably Didn’t Win The $1.6 Billion Jackpot, But One Ticket Did
Is it you?
One winning ticket was sold in South Carolina for Tuesday night’s record-shattering Mega Millions jackpot worth at least $1.6 billion, the state’s official lottery website reported.
The winning numbers were 5-28-62-65-70, with a Megaball of 5.
The jackpot winner can choose to take either an annuity for the full prize, paid out over 30 years, or a lump sum that would come to about $905 million before taxes.
The next Mega Millions drawing, which will occur on Oct. 26, will offer a jackpot worth $40 million.
