Lottery officials say someone has won the record $1.6 billion Mega Millions jackpot.

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) – Lottery officials say someone has won the record $1.6 billion Mega Millions jackpot. It’s the world’s largest ever lottery grand prize. Mega Millions officials said a ticket purchased in South Carolina matches all six numbers in Tuesday night’s drawing. The winning numbers were 5, 28, 62, 65, 70 and Mega Ball 5. They’re not yet identifying the store where the ticket was sold, and the world may never know who bought it. South Carolina is one of eight states where winners can remain anonymous.
