Story of the Day from CBS New York.
MIDDLETOWN, N.Y. (CBSNewYork) — Politicians weren’t the only big winners on Election Day.
One lucky person holds the winning ticket for Tuesday night’s $321 million Mega Millions jackpot.
The ticket was purchased in Middletown in Orange County, CBS2 reported.
The single ticket matched all six numbers: 9, 15, 24, 39 and 41, plus the Mega Ball of 1.
Tickets sold in California, New Jersey and Texas, which matched five numbers, but missed the Mega Ball number, are worth $1 million each. One ticket sold in New York also matched five numbers, but is worth $4 million because the person played the optional Megaplier.
The jackpot has been rolling since late August. It’s the eighth largest in Mega Millions history.
