The Texas Lottery has announced that a single ticket sold at the Lakeline Express Mart on 2004 N. Lakeline Boulevard in Cedar Park has won Tuesday night's Mega Millions drawing worth an estimated $227 million.
"We look forward to meeting Texas' newest millionaire, and we are excited to have another Mega Millions jackpot winner here in Texas," said Gary Grief, executive director of the Texas Lottery.
"If you have the winning ticket, we encourage you to sign the ticket, put it in a safe place, seek financial and legal advice, and call the Texas Lottery before coming to Austin to claim the prize."
Although the winner has yet to come forward, we do know the numbers on the winning ticket were generated using the quick pick option, and the cash value option was selected at the time of purchase.
The winner has 180 days from the draw date to claim the prize which amounts to a staggering $157,091,592, the largest jackpot ever paid out to a single Texas Lottery player.
Tuesday's winning numbers were 6, 14, 24, 42, and 46, with Mega Ball number 9. The Megaplier was 4.
