The MEGA Millions jackpot has finally been won! A single ticket bought in South Carolina is the winner of the $1.6 Billion MEGA Million jackpot prize, the largest lottery jackpot in US history, and the largest won by a single ticket.

Organizers of the MEGA Millions lottery said the winning ticket was bought somewhere in South Carolina and, since the state allows anonymity for lottery winners, we may never know who won – the first ever billion dollar lottery winner!

The winning numbers drawn on Tuesday night were 5, 28, 62, 65, 70 with 5 again as the Mega ball.

The jackpot had been growing since July after the $543 million jackpot was won. The prize now goes back to $40 million.

So far, Mega Millions organizers have not pinpointed where exactly in South Carolina the winning ticket was purchased.

There was frenzied ticket buying leading up to Tuesday as bettors all wanted a share of the richest lottery jackpot in US history. They had a one in 300 million chance of winning.

The winner can either opt to take the lump sum of $913 million, or get the whole amount in annuities spread over 29 years.
