One incredibly lucky winner has made history by winning the world’s largest ever lottery jackpot.
The staggering $1.6 Billion (£1.2 Billion) US Mega Millions prize has been won by a ticketholder in the state of South Carolina.
The ticket matched all five numbers – 5, 28, 62, 65 and 70 – as well as the bonus ball (5).
Now the lucky ticketholder has a big decision to make – whether to settle for a lump sum now of £698 million or claim the full prize over a 29 year period.
Mega Millions is played in 44 states as well as Washington DC and the US Virgin Islands.
