Winning $1.6 billion lottery ticket sold in South Carolina


Some lucky winner finally had the magic combination for the Mega Millions jackpot.

This morning we know that winning $1.6 billion ticket was sold somewhere in South Carolina, but it’s still unclear if any other winning tickets were sold in different states.

The state’s education lottery made that announcement early Wednesday morning. 

On Tuesday, the Massachusetts lottery commission said on roughly 8,000 Mega Millions tickets were being sold every minute ahead of the $1.6 billion drawing.

Money from ticket sales will still end up going towards cities and towns across the state. 

Springfield got more than $36 million in local aid in 2017, and Chicopee got more than $11 million.

Two Massachusetts residents also won big Tuesday night, with two $1 million tickets being sold at locations in the state.

One ticket was sold at a Cumberland Farms in Bridgewater and another winning ticket was sold at Wilmington Nouria in Wilmington.

Each location will receive a $10,000 bonus for having sold a winning ticket.

But you still have another chance at becoming a millionaire Wednesday night.

The Powerball jackpot is up to $620 million with a cash value of about $354 million.
