There will be no billion-dollar lottery games this week, it appears.
According to the S.C. Education Lottery, a North Myrtle Beach grocery store sold a Mega Millions ticket worth $1 million. The winning ticket was purchased at the Bi-Lo at 720 Main St. in North Myrtle Beach.
The ticket sold in North Myrtle Beach matched all five white ball numbers drawn.
At least one winning ticket to Tuesday's Tuesday's $636 million Mega Millions jackpot (8, 14, 17, 20 and 39 — gold Mega Ball 7) was sold in San Jose, Calif., according to a tweet from the California Lottery. There was no official word on how many other tickets may have been sold.
Never miss a local story.
But that doesn't mean South Carolina residents should ditch those tickets. Tony Cooper of the S.C. Education Lottery told WLTX on Tuesday evening that South Carolina did sell a $1 million ticket.
Over the past two years, there have been seven large jackpots. According to the South Carolina Education Lottery, Powerball posted a $399 million jackpot in September, a $448 million jackpot in August, a $590 million jackpot in May and $587 million last November.
The cash option prize is currently estimated at $341.2 million.
The jackpot put it close to the record $656 million, which was set in March of last year. The jackpot has been rolling since it was last hit in Maryland for $190 million on Oct. 1.
