Lottery boom in Arizona continues; another $1M ticket sold near Phoenix

Lottery boom in Arizona continues; another $1M ticket sold near Phoenix

If you didn't win the almost $1.6 billion Mega Millions jackpot, $750 million might be a nice consolation prize.

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

The six winning numbers drawn on Tuesday night were 5, 28, 62, 65, 70 and 5 again as the special Mega Ball.

No ticket matched all six numbers for the prize Wednesday night, making the jackpot now the third largest in US history and second largest in Powerball history.

The winning tickets are worth $10,000 each.

SC is one of just a handful of states that allows lottery jackpot winners to remain anonymous.

Yesterday's Powerball lottery prize stood at $620m, making it the fifth-largest jackpot in U.S. history, after no one got all six numbers in Saturday's drawing. If the victor decides to take the prize in a lump cash sum, the lottery will pay them $878 million cash.

"It wasn't me", Haynes said over the phone, adding he matched only one number. Mega Millions followed suit in October 2017, with odds worsening from 1 in 259 million to 1 in 302.5 million.

"This could be a good and bad thing", she said.

Putin "probably" involved in assassinations, poisonings
This meeting was the first since Trump's arrival in the White House in January 2017. I don't think it's a hoax, I think there's probably a difference.

The largest Powerball jackpot of $1.586 billion was split three ways in January 2016.

So far, the victor has not come forward and in Arizona, you have 180 days to claim your winnings.

All eyes are now on tonight's Powerball jackpot which is an estimated $620 million with a cash option of $354.3 million. The tickets were sold in northeast and south central Kansas.

Although Tuesday's jackpot was big, it's no fluke.

Only five lottery jackpots have been larger, but with two giant prizes in one week, it's hard not to compare.

While most attention has focused on Mega Millions, Powerball also has been soaring.

When it comes to the KC Mart, that is accurate.

The Powerball will roll over to $750 million for Saturday's draw. One went to Jennifer Santo, a nurse from Dartmouth, and the other has yet to be claimed.
