Lucky lottery victor scoops record $1.6bn

Jennifer Santo won $1 million as part of the Mega Millions lottery drawing Tuesday

Players have until 8:59 p.m.to purchase tickets for tonight's drawing. There were no winners.

Wednesday's winning numbers were 03-21-45-53-56 and the Powerball was 22. The jackpot for the in-state Megabucks Doubler is at $3.7 million for Wednesday's drawing, officials said. The next drawing is on Saturday, Oct. 28. The cash option is now $428.6 million. Ticket sales in MA for that drawing totaled more than $32 million, officials said. "As the country experiences the fun and excitement of record jackpots, it's important to do not forget to play responsibly".

In the past, images of gleaming lottery winners holding oversized checks served as great publicity for lotteries.

But Cooper described reaction to the winning ticket being sold in SC with a word not found in the dictionary. Mega Millions followed suit in October 2017, with odds worsening from 1 in 259 million to 1 in 302.5 million.

It is now the fourth-largest lottery jackpot in US history.

South Carolina Education Lottery Chief Operating Officer Tony Cooper told the AP that the lottery knows where and when the victor bought the ticket, but the lottery will only know their name once the victor comes forward.

Sales from this drawing generated more than $10 million for state beneficiaries, which include more than $4 million for environmental causes.

The victor of the jackpot has 180 days to come forward to claim the prize, according to WIS-TV.

Another $1 million lottery ticket has been sold in Dane County.

Both Powerball and Mega Millions made winning more hard in recent years, which means it takes longer to reach the jackpot so it grows larger.

The previous record was a $1.586bn jackpot for a Powerball lottery draw in 2016. "I have relatives that actually work with them at a local manufacturing place in the area", she added, tantalisingly.
