$1 million winning Powerball ticket sold in Arizona

If there is more than one victor, the jackpot would be shared, as happened when the previous Mega Millions record of $656 million was drawn in March 2012 and was divided between winners in Kansas, Illinois and Maryland, a lottery official said. The odds of any single person matching all six numbers are estimated somewhere in the neighborhood of one in 302 million.

The Mega Millions jackpot is now up to a whopping $1.6 billion. "We're so happy for the victor, and we know the South Carolina Education Lottery can't wait to meet the lucky ticket holder".

It's up to an estimated $620 million for Wednesday's drawing. It could happen as soon as Tuesday night, when the next drawing is held.

The current jackpot beats the previous record, a $1.586bn jackpot for a Powerball drawing in 2016. Several states allow online ticket purchases, but they prohibit out-of-state and foreign purchases.

That's the value if the victor or winners select 30 annuity payments. The odds are low, about one in 300 million.
