Last night, the winning numbers 23, 32, 33, 39, 43, and a mega ball number of 8 were found on one winning ticket nationwide, according to the lottery’s official website.
The winner must match all six numbers AND the powerball in order to win. As of this morning, no one had come forward to claim the big prize.
If the winner selects the option, he or she could take home about $151.9 million, after taxes.
King Kullen employee Lisa Korpie said the store’s employees are in a bit of a frenzy about the mysterious winner and are hoping that they come forward soon.
“We have a lot of regulars who buy their tickets here,” she said. “Everyone is excited to see who it is, maybe it’s someone we know.”
If you don’t live in New York, you might want to relocate. This is the second time this year that a ticket sold in that state has won a Mega Millions prize over $200 million. The largest Mega Millions jackpot ever won was $390 million, but that prize was split between two winners.
Mega Millions is a multistate lottery game played in 42 states including California.
