A jackpot-winning Mega Millions ticket was sold in SC, the state's lottery website announced Tuesday night.

The six winning numbers drawn on Tuesday night were five, 28, 62, 65, 70 and another five as the special "gold Mega Ball".

Tickets had to match all five white balls and the yellow Mega Ball to claim total victory.

At least one winning ticket has been reported, in SC, for the largest lottery jackpot in U.S. history.

That puts the jackpots for the nation's two largest lotteries at more than $2.2 billion. The multi-state Powerball drawing set for Wednesday night has a jackpot that has soared to $620 million. It's unclear whether there are jackpot winners in other states.

Early Wednesday, the Mega Millions website reported there was just that one winning ticket.

A portion of the prize money will go to the retailer; the exact amount is determined by each state, Gentry said.

All four tickets matched the five numbers drawn Tuesday night while the $3 million victor also matched the mega number, 5.

The lottery jackpot now falls to $40 million and the next Mega Millions drawing is Friday, said a Mega Millions press release.

Sinins said such plans can turn into a protracted legal fight, hard feelings and court orders - like in the case of his clients, who eventually won a jury verdict and split the lottery winnings.

Mega Million tickets are still on sale and you can purchase tickets up until 15 minutes before the drawing on Tuesday, making the cut-off time 10:45 p.m.

You are more likely to get hit by lightning or attacked by a shark than win the Mega Millions.

Although Tuesday's jackpot was extraordinarily large, it's no fluke.

Powerball has climbed since there was a victor in NY on August 11.
