Store that sold lucky ticket could be named soon

Store that sold lucky ticket could be named soon

One winning Pennsylvania Lottery Mega Millions® ticket worth $1 million from the Tuesday, October 23, drawing was sold at a Delaware County convenience store.

And two still unidentified lucky winners - one in Texas, and another in Florida - won $3 million each.

The next jackpot victor could come from anywhere. "We would offer them free milk and cookies, but I doubt they need it now".

Lottery officials say a ticket sold in SC matched all five numbers and the Mega Ball to hit it big. Spano tweeted out: "Congrats To The Lucky Winner!"

The $1.6 billion jackpot translates to a one-time payout of $904 million before taxes, or 30-year installments that start at $24 million, and grow to more than $99 million by the final annuity.

The winning numbers were 5, 28, 62, 65 and 70.

Also in SC, three people matched four out of five numbers and had a Megaball, for a win of $10,000; 88 people matched four out of five white balls only for $500; 230 people matched 3 out of 5 numbers and the Megaball for $200.

In addition to the grand prize, 36 tickets sold last night won the second prize of $1 million.

But all hope is not lost for those who didn't win. For the next drawing on Friday, the jackpot will reset to its starting value of $40 million, or about $22.8 million in cash. Most said they would love to help family and friends.

The jackpot has been growing since July, when a group of California office workers won $543 million.

Powerball was the first to make that move in October 2015 when it changed the odds of winning the jackpot from one in 175 million to one in 292 million.

Safeway at 730 Taraval Ave. was the site of a partial Mega Millions victor.

The world record jackpot remains a Powerball prize of $1.586 billion, which was matched in January 2016 by three tickets, from California, Florida, Tennessee.

Here at home - don't throw away your tickets just yet.

That puts the jackpots for the nation's two largest lotteries at more than $2.2 billion.

Yesterday morning, a few customers waited in line at a newsstand in the Port Authority Bus Terminal in New York City to purchase last-minute tickets.

In South Carolina, winners must claim their prize in person at the Columbia Claims Center. If the SC victor is the only Mega Millions victor, then they will first face a federal tax and then a 7 percent state tax, as calculated and presented by USA Mega. But Mega Millions officials said Wednesday the jackpot was several million dollars less.
