US$ 336M Mega Millions Lottery Jackpot shared by two.
A New Yorker and a Southern California man both guessed correctly all five numbers plus the Mega Ball and hit the second-biggest Mega Millions Jackpot in Mega Millions history.
The odds of winning the Jackpot were one in 176 million.
What made the win even sweeter for Kevin Ogawa, the winner from Southern California, was that he bought only one lottery ticket, for a dollar. That is indeed a sweet return on a dollar.
Kevin chose the cash option, meaning he will take home about US$ 107 Million.
James Groves, the lucky winner from New York, commented in his interview to the New York Post that winning the lottery happened in a point in his life when he was completely down on his luck, completely broke and that he felt like the skies smiled upon him and granted him his wish.
The winning combination in August 28th drawing was
37, 1, 17, 31, 54 and Mega Ball 31.
Mega Millions is a multi-state game played in 12 states.
