October brings $8 million in big lottery wins to Floridians

The grand prize was overestimated, however, and the ticket sold in SC with all six winning Mega Millions numbers wound up with a $1.537 billion jackpot.

"It was heartbreaking to know I was only one number away from the big one, or even a $3 million win", said Rosa when he claimed his prize at the Lottery offices in Boise this morning. It is unclear how much prize money the near-winning tickets will earn. "We're so happy for the victor, and we know the South Carolina Education Lottery can't wait to meet the lucky ticket holder".

She purchased her winning Quic Pic ticket, which matched the first five numbers drawn, at a Cumberland Farms in Bridgewater, the release said. That wins Mega Millions' second prize of a $1 million.

The ticket was bought at a Hy-Vee gas outlet.

Mega Millions aside, the Powerball drawing is Wednesday, and the jackpot for that is an estimated $620 million. Wednesday's will be the third-largest Powerball jackpot.

The victor can take $913m in a lump sum cash payment or the whole pile in annuities over 29 years.

A small piece of white paper sold at a convenience store in SC is now worth more than $1.5 billion.


The victor doesn't stand much chance of staying anonymous if he or she is local, Curtis said.

Mears said after realizing he won, he waiting until 6:30 am to wake his wife Jo up with a question; How does it feel to be a millionaire? The cash option on the prize is $877.8 million.

- Some lucky Floridians won a combined $6 million in Tuesday night's Mega Millions drawing.

The next jackpot victor could come from anywhere.

Micah Valentine fills out a Mega Millions ticket at KC Mart No. 7 in Simpsonville.

"Hopefully it's a local guy to spend it in the community", Patel said.
