The largest Mega Millions jackpot prize ever won by a Lottery player in the Great State of Texas happened last weekend. 

It happened last Friday, October 6, when one winning ticket worth an estimated annuitized $360 million for the Mega Millions drawing was purchased, which was, by the way, the largest Mega Millions jackpot ever won by a Texas Lottery® player.

The winning Quick Pick ticket was sold at Stripes No. 5031, located at 5665 Sherwood Way, in San Angelo, Texas, and matched all six of the numbers drawn that night, they were 12-24-46-57-66, Mega Ball 22.


The lucky player chose the "cash value" option, which is done at the time of purchase, which was certainly nothing to sneeze at, an estimated $156.9 million before taxes.

If you were in San Angelo on Friday and purchased a ticket from that store, you better check it. The winner has 180 days from the draw date to claim the prize.



The retailer is also eligible to receive a $1 million retailer bonus for selling this jackpot-winning ticket.

“We are absolutely thrilled to have a big Mega Millions jackpot winner right here in Texas and we’re eagerly looking forward to meeting and congratulating the Lone Star State’s largest-ever Mega Millions jackpot winner,” 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.”


Tonight, the Powerball drawing is hitting the stratosphere at an estimated $1.55 Billion at the time of this writing. As you might imagine, sales are... brisk.

Good luck lotto players!
