The Mega Millions winning numbers are out and a single lucky ticket holder in SC can claim the largest jackpot ever offered - an estimated $1.6 billion with a one-time cash option of $913 million.

A ticket sold somewhere in Kentucky matched five numbers but not the Powerball in Wednesday night's drawing, according the Powerball website. Most were rewarded with a $US1 million prize, but two of them, in Florida and Texas, added a Megaplier option, tripling their winnings to $US3 million.
