A Midlands lottery player is carrying around a $50,000 ticket after purchasing a Mega Millions ticket, according to a statement from the S.C. Education Lottery. It will be the largest jackpot in the game's history and the second largest in the USA lottery jackpot history. On Aug. 15, 2012, Donald Lawson, of Lapeer, won a $337 million Powerball jackpot.
The odds of winning the Mega Millions are one in 302 million.
That means the jackpot will climb to at least $868 million.
The game, which was created in 2002, has seen changes over the years that have reduced the chances of winning, meaning bigger and bigger jackpots. The cash option is usually favored by the winners.
"It's been a long time since anyones hit the Mega or the Powerball so tonight will be Powerball and then Friday will be Mega and it gets everybody excited, it's been quite awhile since anybody hit it", Pitcock said. On April 22, 2005, a Port Huron couple, Ralph and Mary Stebbins, won $208 million playing Mega Millions.
Believe it or not, this week's combined billion-dollar haul is not the biggest prize in the lottery's history.
The Powerball is set to be drawn Wednesday night.
Mega Millions tickets for Friday's drawing may be purchased online at MichiganLottery.com and at the Lottery's 11,000 retailers around the state until 10:45 p.m.
