Someone in Sugar Land came close to winning $400 million Mega Millions jackpot

SUGAR LAND, Texas (KTRK) -- Someone who bought a lottery ticket at a store in Sugar Land came very close to winning the $400 million Mega Millions jackpot.

The ticket sold at the Timewise store on University Boulevard at LJ Parkway is worth $1 million and matched five of the six winning numbers in Tuesday night's drawing.

Here are the winning numbers: 7, 8, 20, 36, 39 and the mega ball, 22.

The only other state to have a winner match five was New York.

No one won the jackpot, so it grows to $430 million for Friday's drawing at 10 p.m.

The cash option is less than that, but certainly nothing to sneeze at. If you take the cash, you'll get $291.1 million.

Tickets are $2 per play.
