Winning ticket in $2.45 billion USA lottery

Jennifer Santo won $1 million as part of the Mega Millions lottery drawing Tuesday

Two of those winners - in Florida and Texas - added the Megaplier option to their ticket, and Tuesday's 3X Megaplier number tripled their prizes to $3 million.

The winning ticket was sold at a convenience store in the rural town of Simpsonville, with a population 22,000.

While the big winning ticket for the $1.5 billion Mega Millions lottery was sold in South Carolina, Minnesota didn't go empty-handed.

The winning numbers for October 23 are the white balls 5, 28, 62, 65 and 70, plus the gold Mega Ball 5.

'The final total was less than the $1.6 billion estimate, ' confirmed Carol Gentry, a spokeswoman for the Maryland Lottery, which leads a consortium of state lotteries participating in the Mega Millions jackpot.

With the crown prince's standing marred, his ability to draw needed investment to the kingdom could be affected. At one summit session, Saudi Energy Minister Khalid Al-Falih described Khashoggi's slaying as "abhorrent".

SC allows lottery winners to remain anonymous, and so far no one has come forward to claim the jackpot. Other winning tickets were sold in Harahan, St. Francisville, Kenner, Bell Chase, Metairie, and Albany. That still stands as the all-time highest lottery jackpot ever in the U.S. That is what most lottery winners do. He published it after he read an article where Floyd Mayweather said he spent $2,000 on lottery tickets. The lucky person can also take an $877.8 million lump-sum cash payment, which most winners choose to receive.

Lottery officials said the state will get $80 million in taxes.

Owner Teju Patadia said they were very busy Wednesday with customers looking to buy lottery tickets from what's now known as the lucky store. The victor also has up to 180 days to claim the prize.

The name of South Carolina's last big victor - a $399 million Powerball jackpot in September 2013 which at the time was the fourth biggest lottery prize in US history - has never been made public.

The most popular prize in the state from this drawing is $2 - 340,628 tickets matched the Mega Ball for $2 prizes. Five years earlier, a Powerball player in the state won a US$399 million jackpot; the man who claimed that prize remained anonymous.
