"Thank you to everyone who participated in last night's Mega Millions jackpot draw", said Jeff Anderson, Idaho Lottery Director.

Also, South Carolina's Mega Millions victor isn't the only one going home with some money.

There were 36 second-tier winners, those who picked five winning numbers but did not match the Mega Ball.

Rosa's winning ticket was sold at KJ's Superstore in Kuna. The winning numbers were 5-28-62-65-70, with a Mega Ball of 5.

Lottery officials had said for days that the jackpot would be worth an estimated US$1.6 billion, a U.S. lottery record.

An earlier Mega Millions estimate of $1.6 billion would have been a world record for lotteries, but actual sales came in below the $1.586 billion Powerball jackpot prize shared by winners in California, Florida and Tennessee in January of 2016.

"Does it make a difference to somebody this morning that when they thought they were going to win $1.6 billion and they only won $1.537 billion?" he asked. That is what most lottery winners do.

Until now the USA record jackpot was $1.586bn for a different lottery, called Powerball, in 2016. A single lucky ticket holder in SC can claim the jackpot.

The winning tickets are worth $10,000 each.

The victor can take $913m in a lump sum cash payment or the whole pile in annuities over 29 years.

When it comes to the KC Mart, that is accurate. It reflects a trend toward ever-growing lottery prizes due to changes that worsened the odds with hopes of bigger jackpots and better sales.

The prize is extraordinary by any measure, but particularly so for SC, where it would be enough for an exceedingly generous victor to shower roughly $307 on each of the state's five million people. One was sold in Mount Pleasant and the other in Grandville.

Over the past week in the Gem State, the game Mega Millions alone has generated approximately $2.6 million in dividends for Idaho's public schools and the State's permanent building facilities.
