MA nurse wins big in Mega Millions drawing

Lottery fever remains in Kentucky as Powerball approaches $620 million

Lottery fever remains in Kentucky as Powerball approaches $620 million

Even though the winning Mega Millions jackpot ticket was bought in SC, several Louisiana residents still won some money.

Presta went on to thank Kansas Lottery players for their great enthusiasm in last night's drawing and reminded players to check their tickets.

An earlier Mega Millions estimate of $1.6 billion would have been a world record for lotteries, but actual sales came in below the $1.586 billion Powerball jackpot prize shared by winners in California, Florida and Tennessee in January of 2016. Though the $1.6 billion victor lives in South Carolina-AKA one of eight states where lottery winners can choose to remain anonymous-it's not out of the realm of possibility that this person could be on the show (hey, the odds have to be better than actually winning the jackpot in the first place). The winning numbers were: 5, 28, 62, 65, 70 and 5 for the mega ball.

The Baton Rouge tickets were bought at the Circle K at 9320 Burbank Drive and Romero's Food Mart at 13921 Joor Road.

Lottery officials said Minnesota players won more than $2.2 million during the latest Mega Millions run.

The Mega Millions ticket sold at SLO Quick Stop at 2600 Broad Street. No idea. We had a lot of customers yesterday, so I have no idea, ' he said, fending off questions about the lucky winner's identity.

A small piece of white paper sold at a convenience store in SC is now worth more than $1.5 billion.

A flimsy little piece of paper that crossed the counter of a convenience store on a country road in Simpsonville, South Carolina, is now worth $1.537 billion, and they apparently don't know the victor. That prize is up to $620 million. It is unclear how much prize money the near-winning tickets will earn.

But who that lucky victor is may remain a mystery to the public.

Those earnings are likely to increase too, Cooper said, as a climbing Powerball lottery is set to be drawn Wednesday night.

The ticket is worth about $877.8 million in a lump-sum cash payment, which most winners choose to take, rather than collect the full amount in annual payments over three decades.

The victor has 180 days to claim the prize, Armstrong said.

"The jackpot's been rolling since it was hit in July in California, but there are few precedents for a jackpot of this size", Gentry said.

Over the past week in the Gem State, the game Mega Millions alone has generated approximately $2.6 million in dividends for Idaho's public schools and the State's permanent building facilities.

Micah Valentine fills out a Mega Millions ticket at KC Mart No. 7 in Simpsonville. Chase Hatcher said, trading smiles across the counter with Jee and Twinkle Patel.
