One SINGLE Mega Millions $1.6 Billion Jackpot Winner…
….in South Carolina.
If you bought a Mega Millions ticket in South Carolina, you could be a winner of a record $1.6 BILLION jackpot.
The holder of a single ticket bearing the numbers 5, 28, 62, 65 and 70, with a Mega Ball of 5, is looking at $1.6 billion, or taken as a lump sum, over $900 million – BUT since the ticket was sold in South Carolina, we may never meet the person or people who won. South Carolina is one of eight states in the US where winners can choose to remain anonymous. Across the US, 26 winners matched 5 of 6 numbers, so they will also be receiving a large amount of cash, but not the record-breaking amount. There ARE 2 $1 million winners in New Jersey, and 1 in Pennsylvania, so don’t throw the ticket away just yet.
Not a winner? No worries! Your second chance is TONIGHT’S $620 million (cash value: $354.3 million) Powerball drawing. Not a bad consolation prize. Good luck, and remember your favorite radio station BEN-FM (and morning show DJs there…) if you do win!
