One winning ticket sold in South Carolina for US$1.6b lottery jackpot: State lottery

One ticket sold in South Carolina matched all six numbers in the Mega
Millions lottery draw on Tuesday (Oct 23) for a record setting US$1.6
billion jackpot, the state's lottery said on its website early on

The ticket matched the five numbers 5, 28, 62, 65, 70 and the Mega Ball 5
that were drawn on Tuesday night. Anyone who hit all six numbers to win
the jackpot can choose an immediate cash payment of US$904 million or
receive the US$1.6 billion prize over 29 years.

It was unclear early on Wednesday if other winning tickets were sold elsewhere.

The website of the South Carolina Education Lottery showed that one
winning ticket was sold in the state. The buyer of the ticket beat odds
of 1 in 303 million to win the Mega Millions drawing.

Mega Millions set a record for lottery jackpots after nobody won the
US$1 billion prize on Friday. The previous record was a US$1.586 billion
jackpot for a Powerball drawing in 2016.
