Winning Mega Millions ticket sold in Florida

PORT RICHEY — A 7-Eleven in Pasco County sold the winning lottery ticket for $450 million, the Florida Lottery announced Saturday. The winning numbers were 28, 30, 39, 59, 70 and the Mega Ball was 10. The Powerball jackpot and Mega Millions jackpots are both over $400 million at the same time for the first time. Numbers will be drawn Saturday night for the seventh-largest jackpot in USA history - $570 million before taxes. It's unclear when the new millionaire will come forward.

A single ticket in Florida won the $450 million jackpot.

Powerball odds are one in 292.2 million.


Players have plenty of time to purchase tickets for both drawings.

The Mega Millions jackpot now resets to its starting amount of $40 million ($25 million cash) for the next draw on January 9.

Meanwhile, the Powerball jackpot continues to rise ahead of its drawing on Saturday night. A "Power Play" option that multiplies non-jackpot prizes by up to 10 times to a maximum of $2 million may be added to any Powerball play for only $1. Since it began in 1972, the Lottery has contributed more than $20.5 billion to support public education.
