(Columbia, SC) - Someone in South Carolina has about a billion reasons to celebrate.
The state education lottery announced Tuesday night that a winning Mega Millions ticket was sold in the state. It's not clear where the ticket was sold.
The jackpot was more than $1.6 billion. It's the largest US lottery jackpot ever.
It's not clear if there are any other jackpot winners. If there are not, the sole winner could opt for a lump sum of more than $900 million.
In Kentucky, a $1 million ticket was sold in Louisville at the Speedway at 7933 Fegenbush Ln. The Kentucky Lottery says this is the fourth $1 million ticket sold in the state over the past 17 days.
The winning numbers were 5, 28, 62, 65, 70 and the Mega number was 5.
