NATIONWIDE — If you bought a Mega Millions lottery ticket in the hopes of winning $521 million, there is some bad news. Unless you bought it in New Jersey.
The winning ticket for a giant lottery jackpot estimated at $521 million has been sold in New Jersey.
Mega Millions says one winning ticket was sold in Friday night's drawing. The winning numbers were 11, 28, 31, 46, 59 and Mega Ball 1. No additional details on where the ticket was sold were available Saturday.
It's the nation's 10th-largest lottery jackpot. No one has matched all six numbers drawn since January.
The $521 million figure refers to the annuity option, in which payments are made over 29 years. The cash option would pay $317 million.
Mega Millions is played in 44 states plus Washington, D.C., and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
The next drawing is Tuesday, April 3, for $40 million. That is still OK, right?
