One Winning Ticket In South Carolina For $1.6 Billion Mega Millions

One winning ticket was sold in South Carolina for Tuesday night’s record-breaking Mega Millions jackpot worth $1.6 billion.

Nope, it wasn’t me.

One winning ticket was sold in South Carolina for Tuesday night’s record-breaking Mega Millions jackpot worth $1.6 billion.

The winning digits were 5-28-62-65-70, with a Megaball of 5.

The lone winner can choose to be paid over 30 years (nope), or take a lump sum that would come to about $905 million. After taxes, that would come to around $543,000,000.

This was the largest jackpot in Mega Millions history surpassing a $1.586 billion Powerball jackpot that was shared between three tickets in 2016.

The next Mega Millions drawing, which will occur on Oct. 26, will offer a jackpot worth a paltry $40 million.

Why even buy a ticket for that?
