$1 million winning lottery ticket sold in Kettering, Ohio

Seven Mega Millions tickets sold in Colorado were one number short of being a part of the almost $1.6 billion jackpot, the Colorado Lottery said.

In addition to the jackpot victor, lottery officials say there were 36 one million dollar second prize tickets - each matching the five white balls drawn Tuesday night.

Mega Millions set a record for lottery jackpots after nobody won the US$1 billion prize on Friday.

Someone in SC went to bed $1.6 billion richer, before taxes, anyway.

The winning numbers in the drawing were 5-28-62-65-70 and 5 for the Mega Ball.

The winning ticket was bought in SC, but the lucky victor has not yet been identified.

Mega Millions officials announced that a single ticker owner will have the great fortune of claiming the record-setting prize. Peak sales occurred from 6-7 pm when Mega Millions sales averaged $6,405 per minute. Winning numbers included 15,23,53,65, and 70, as well as the Mega Ball 7.

The victor of the largest lottery jackpot in U.S. history may not be in California, but the state wasn't left completely out in the cold.

The $1.6-billion prize is the biggest ever.

The $1.537 billion prize reflects the estimated annuity option, which is paid over 29 years, but almost all winners take the cash option, which for Tuesday's drawing was an estimated $877.8 million.

With the jackpot and the other lesser prizes - as little as the face value of a ticket for getting just the Mega Ball right - there were almost 16 million tickets Tuesday night that earned people at least something.

The competition was created in 2002 and has seen a number of changes to the rules over the years that have reduced the odds of winning, leading to larger jackpots. It reflects a trend toward ever-growing lottery prizes due to changes in the game that worsened the odds with hopes that bigger jackpots would result in better sales. A news conference at the KC Mart was planned for later Wednesday. The current odds to actually win the jackpot are 1 in 302,575,350 (via ABC News).

While most attention has been on the Mega Millions game, Powerball also has been soaring. That's worth an estimated $620 million. "Now I know y'all have it!"
