Could The $1.6 Billion Lottery Winner Appear On My Lottery Dream Home?

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

The world's largest ever lottery grand prize came from a Mega Millions ticket purchased in a tiny town in the USA state of SC, with the jackpot smashing the lottery's former record of $928,000 set in March 2012.

Mega Millions announced the historic win in a statement early Wednesday.

Three tickets matched four of the first five numbers and the Megaball without Megaplier to win $10,000.

The Powerball has climbed since the last winning ticket in NY took home the jackpot in August, and it has had 20 drawings since then without a victor.

Four second-tier winning tickets worth $1 million each were sold in NY; three were sold in Florida; two each were sold in Massachusetts, Michigan, North Carolina, New Jersey and Virginia; and one each was sold in Arizona, Washington, D.C. Iowa, Kentucky, Missouri, New Mexico, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin.

The winning numbers are 5, 28, 62, 65, 70 and Mega Ball 5.

"I stopped to get some Mega Millions tickets because the jackpot is so high", said Jordan, a mother of four, in a news release.

The jackpot was just shy of the $1.586 billion Powerball jackpot prize shared by winners in California, Florida and Tennessee in January 2016. The jackpot for Powerball had climbed to $620 million by Wednesday afternoon.

Jerry and Jo Mears of Eden, North Carolina, said they like to relax at their place at Smith Mountain Lake and while on a recent trip there, Jerry made a decision to buy some Mega Millions tickets!

Customers, shocked and giddy about the community's sudden notoriety, lined up to buy tickets for the next Mega Millions and for the growing Powerball pot.

For the victor, options include an immediate cash payment of $877.8 million, or the $1.537 billion prize paid out over 29 years.

Santo, who was joined by her husband Manuel at Lottery headquarters to claim her prize, was especially grateful after a recent unfortunate travel experience.

"I said, 'How does it feel to be a millionaire?'" he told Virginia Lottery officials. The cash option on the prize is $877.8 million.

A single ticket holder in SC will claim that bounty, Mega Millions said on its website yesterday.

McGowan notes that media outlets also like to run stories about "biggest-ever" prizes.

Most lottery winners opt for the lump sum. She was worth $1.8 billion from the chemical, real estate and manufacturing conglomerate, the magazine reported. Patel said he was unable to offer any clues.

The victor has 180 days to claim the prize, Armstrong said. "Now I know y'all have it!"
