"The moment we've been waiting for has finally arrived, and we couldn't be more excited," said Gordon Medenica, the director of the Mega Millions Group and head of Maryland Lottery and Gaming. "This is truly a historic occasion."
The winning numbers drawn were: 5, 28, 62, 65, 70 and Mega Ball 5.
The largest-ever lottery amount of R3.2 BILLION has finally been won! Lottery officials confirm the winning ticket was purchased from a store in South Carolina, USA and matched all six numbers in the Mega Millions lottery draw. Details of the store have not yet been published.
The Mega Millions has been growing since July, when a group of office workers from California won a life-changing amount. Since then, nobody has managed to predict all 6 numbers, besides off course the recent multi-billionaire!
"We're so happy for the winner, and we know the South Carolina Education Lottery can't wait to meet the lucky ticket holder," Medenica said.
