Seven $10K Winning Mega Millions Tickets Sold In Minnesota

So lottery officials turned to Twitter to reach out, saying "Our message to the $1.5 BILLION #Mega Millions jackpot victor: Sign the back of the ticket, place the ticket in a safe location, speak with a trusted advisor and CALL THE LOTTERY at 1-866-736-9819".

Also, South Carolina's Mega Millions victor isn't the only one going home with some money. 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 Whistle Stop will receive a $10,000 bonus for selling the winning ticket.

Players are also known for their gambling spirit, shown once again during the Mega Millions Lottery with a $1.6 billion jackpot. One of his tickets matched the first five numbers and missed the MegaBall number by one digit.

Still, the jaw-dropping $1.537 billion jackpot failed to break the record for lottery winnings, held by the $1.586 billion Powerball prize shared by winners in January 2016. Aaron Rosa, Kuna, matched four of the first five numbers and had the Megaball number from last night's draw, meaning he was only one number away from sharing in the $1.537 billion jackpot. Though the $1.6 billion victor lives in South Carolina-AKA one of eight states where lottery winners can choose to remain anonymous-it's not out of the realm of possibility that this person could be on the show (hey, the odds have to be better than actually winning the jackpot in the first place).

But when the jackpot was finalised, it was downgraded to US$1.537 billion.
