One Ticket Lands Mega Millions 7th-Highest Jackpot
By West Kentucky Star Staff
SAN DIEGO - A single ticket sold in San Diego claimed Friday night's $530 million Mega Millions jackpot, the seventh-largest in the history of the game. 

That comes with a cash option payout of $345.2 million.

Three other tickets, sold in California, Arizona and Washington matched all five white balls to claim $1 million apiece.

The numbers were 17-19-27-40-68 with a Mega Ball of 2.

The pot soared over the half-billion dollar mark after there was no winner in the last drawing for $444 million.

The win is also the 15th-largest lottery jackpot claimed in any U.S. game, and the largest since $1.5 billion was claimed in 2018 in South Carolina.

The next drawing on June 11 starts over at $40 million.
