Search for mystery victor of $2.25 billion lottery jackpot

Search for mystery victor of $2.25 billion lottery jackpot

But for a Mega Millions ticket holder, it's also a lucky store for them.

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

Jennifer Santo, 40, of Dartmouth, received a one-time payment after purchasing her winning ticket at a Cumberland Farms on Main Street in Bridgewater.

According to lottery officials, the chance of matching all six numbers and winning the top prize is 1 in 302.5 million.

The winning ticket numbers were 5, 28, 62, 65, 70 and the mega number, 5. That wins Mega Millions' second prize of a $1 million.

A ticket costs $2 - but the odds of winning are about 1 in 302 million. All estimated prize amounts are before taxes.

Ariana Grande and Pete Davidson split
Follwing the split, Ariana cancelled a performance at a charity event that was honouring her manager Scooter Braun's wife. Looking directly at the camera, Frankie then tells Ari: 'You know you've got to keep, keep on breathing - that's true'.


A man buys tickets for Tuesday's Mega Millions lottery drawing after the jackpot exceeded $1.6 billion in New York City, New York, October 23, 2018. The world's largest lottery jackpot remains the $1.586 billion Powerball jackpot won in January 2016. Wednesday's will be the third-largest Powerball jackpot.

One of Idaho's two $30,000 winners from last evening has already claimed his prize. And it is enough money for the victor to give more than $300 to each of South Carolina's 5 million people.

Rolfe Hughes, a Simpsonville resident, said he's driven passed the station a "million times", but he'd never bought a lottery ticket. That is what most lottery winners do.

Over the past week in the Gem State, the game Mega Millions alone has generated approximately $2.6 million in dividends for Idaho's public schools and the State's permanent building facilities.

"Hopefully it's a local guy to spend it in the community", Patel said.

Even if the lump sum makes more sense financially, the annuity may be wiser in light of human nature and the long, depressing history of lottery jackpot winners going broke and ruining their lives after hitting it big. Now I know y'all have it!' Chase Hatcher said, trading smiles across the counter with Jee and Twinkle Patel.
