Convenience store will get $50K for selling winning Mega Millions ticket

Five $10,000 winning tickets sold in the Baton Rouge area

While the winning ticket for the record-breaking $1.6 billion jackpot was sold in SC, four tickets, worth up to $3 million each, were sold in the sunshine state.

While in the area Jerry purchased $60 worth of Mega Millions tickets.

The four Florida tickets all matched the five winning numbers.

On Wednesday morning, it was announced that a ticket sold in SC won the jackpot of $1.537 billion.

Wednesday's Powerball lottery prize stands at $620 million, making it the fifth-largest jackpot in United States history, after no one got all six numbers in Saturday's drawing.

The jackpot had been rolling since a $768 million prize went off on July 24, won by a California office syndicate of 11 co-workers.

But there are other winners, too, who can claim prizes ranging from just a couple dollars to millions.

A $10,000 prize-winning Mega Millions ticket was sold in Washtenaw County. That's okay. There's always the Powerball, scheduled to be drawn Wednesday night.




Powerball officials made the first such move in October 2015, changing the odds of winning the jackpot from 1 in 175 million to 1 in 292.2 million.

The victor can take $913m in a lump sum cash payment or the whole pile in annuities over 29 years.

Simpsonville, South Carolina, is having a moment.

"I said, 'How does it feel to be a millionaire?'" he told Virginia Lottery officials.

Jordan instantly became Cash Explosion's very first $1 million victor.

McGowan notes that media outlets also like to run stories about "biggest-ever" prizes. That is what most lottery winners do. She was worth $1.8 billion from the chemical, real estate and manufacturing conglomerate, the magazine reported.

"I hope he will keep coming in", Patel said with a broad smile. "Now I know y'all have it!"
