City in South Carolina's 'Golden Strip' sells winning lottery ticket

People wait in a long line to purchase lottery tickets outside the Blue Bird Liquor store in Hawthorne California

The ticket, sold in SC, matched the five numbers 5, 28, 62, 65, 70 and the Mega Ball 5 that were drawn on Tuesday night, a Mega Millions spokeswoman said.

The winning numbers in Tuesday's Mega Millions drawing were 5-28-62-65-70 Megaball 5 Megaplier 3.

That person matched all five numbers, but not the Powerball.

The jackpot was the second largest in the history of Mega Millions drawings.

The largest Powerball jackpot was a $1.586 billion prize split among three winners in California, Florida, and Tennessee after the drawing on January 13, 2016. That's okay. There's always the Powerball, scheduled to be drawn Wednesday night. If the Powerball jackpot is hit Saturday, it will be the fourth largest jackpot in USA lottery history.

The news of the winning ticket has left the entire nation bummed out after learning they were not the winners. The cash option is now $428.6 million.
