Winning $1 million lottery ticket sold in Charleston

CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) - A Charleston convenience store sold a lottery ticket worth $1 million, state lottery officials say.

The Mega Millions ticket was purchased from the Circle K on Folly Road in time for Tuesday night's drawing, according to South Carolina Education Lottery spokesperson Holli Armstrong.

The ticket matched all five white ball numbers drawn, she said. The ticket purchaser did not pay an extra dollar for the multiplier feature, which would have added an additional $3 million to the prize.

The winner has not yet been identified, but lottery officials are urging players to check their tickets for Tuesday night's winning numbers of 2, 28, 30, 38, 39 and a Megaball of 11. More than 14,000 players in South Carolina hold tickets for prizes ranging from one dollar to $1 million, Armstrong said.
