California Mega Millions lottery ticket wins $522 million jackpot

26 July 2018

- One single ticket matched all the numbers in last night's Mega Millions lottery drawing, which will claim the massive $552 million jackpot. The jackpot has a cash option of $308 million, which is obviously still not a bad chunk of change.

That means despite Tuesday's jackpot being smaller, the victor will still take home a higher sum of money. The Mega Millions winning tickets sold in MA and Texas included the optional Megaplier, winning those players $3 million each.

The store will receive a $30,000 bonus for its sale of the ticket.

The victor has one year to come forward and claim the money.

The winning ticket was sold at Ernie's Liquors on South White Road, the tweet said.

The largest Mega Millions lottery grand prize was US$656 million, won in 2012.

"This has been an exciting roll", said Mega Millions Lead Director Gordon Medenica, who also works as the Maryland Lottery and Gaming Director.

While just one $522 million Mega Millions ticket was sold in Tuesday night's near-record lottery drawing, two tickets worth $10,000 were sold in Henrico County. Where they were sold are expected to be announced later Wednesday. Two, sold in MA and Texas, included the optional Megaplier (an optional $1 purchase available in most states) and are worth $3 million each.

Three winners from California, Florida and Tennessee shared the colossal amount, taking home a massive $327.8m (£248m) each.
