Texas Mega Millions results: $3 million Mega Millions prize sold in San Antonio

HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) -- Someone's life is forever changed in South Carolina after officials there say a ticket hit all six numbers to claim the record $1.6 billion Mega Millions drawings.

The numbers were picked at 10 p.m.

Those numbers are: 5, 28, 62, 65, 70 and Mega Ball 5.

Someone in Texas won a $3 million Megaplier ticket. The Texas Lottery tweeted that the winning ticket was sold in San Antonio.

Texans have gotten lottery lucky lately.

Even if you take the cash payout of $904 million, you'll still have a nice chunk of change.

The Mega Millions winning numbers page updated around 4 a.m. to reflect there was just one winner for the jackpot.

The next estimated jackpot has also reset to $40 million. That drawing is on Friday.

Tuesday's drawing wasn't a record breaker, but it's still a nice chunk of change. If the winner chooses the cash payout option, he or she walks away with $904 million.

If no one had won the massive jackpot, that would have brought Friday's jackpot potential to $2 billion, which carries a cash payout option of $1.142 billion, according to the Texas Lottery.
