Winning Mega Millions ticket sold in Florida for $450 million jackpot

Winning Mega Millions ticket sold in Florida for $450 million jackpot

Lottery retailers throughout the state are selling Mega Millions tickets until 10:45 p.m. Friday.

The winning numbers to claim the nation's 10th-largest jackpot were 28-30-39-59-70-10.

The jackpot victor can choose a cash option and receive $281 million. The largest Mega Millions jackpot of $656 million was won in 2012.

The jackpot had been climbing since the last victor in mid-October.

The lucky ticket was bought in Florida, according to the Multi-State Lottery association.

Those who missed out will have the chance to cash in with an event bigger prize, as the Powerball jackpot rose to $570 million.

Americans spent $80.5 billion on lottery games previous year, according to the North American Association of State and Provincial Lotteries.

A total of eight Match 5 winning tickets also were sold in Friday's drawing - one each in California, Massachusetts, Tennessee and Virginia, and two each in Oklahoma and Texas. Puerto Rico participates in Powerball. However, under Florida law, the victor can not remain anonymous. A day earlier, no one had matched all six numbers in a Mega Millions drawing, lottery officials said.

The Florida Power Ball, which is up to $570 million, will be drawn on Saturday evening. However, to elect the one-time, lump-sum cash payment option for $281.2 million the claim must be filed within 60 days, according to lottery officials.
