2 Winning $636 Million Mega Millions Lottery Tickets Sold
A winning ticket for an estimated $636 million Mega Millions jackpot, approaching the biggest U.S. lottery prize ever, was sold in San Jose, California, a lottery official said late on Tuesday evening.
There was no immediate word about who won, but the winning ticket was bought at a retail location on Tully Road in San Jose, California, according to Alex Traverso, a lottery official in the western U.S. state.
The winning numbers for Tuesday’s drawing were: 8, 14, 17, 20, 39, and 7, according to the lottery’s website, Megamillions.com.
“There could be more, that’s the only one we know right now,” Traverso said.
If the winner chooses to take the lump sum cash option, instead of payments over 30 years, the jackpot would be $341 million, the lottery said.
