The sole winning ticket for the Mega Millions lottery was sold in New Jersey, the state's lottery organisation said on Saturday (March 31), but the identity of the victor of the US$521 million (S$682 million) jackpot was not immediately known.

Numbers have been drawn for a giant lottery jackpot in the United States of at least U.S. $521 million. Those ticket holders each won $1 million as a result. The lucky numbers were 59 - 46 - 28 - 11 - 31, Mega Ball 1.

New Jersey Lottery confirmed on Twitter Saturday that the jackpot ticket was purchased at Lukoil station in Riverdale, Morris County.

The jackpot victor from Friday night's drawing will get an estimated $521 million prize, or $317 million cash.

No one has matched the numbers for the Mega Millions game since January, letting the jackpot climb to $521 million.

One ticket each with five numbers, but missing the Mega number, were sold in OH and Texas.

This is the fourth time in the game's history that the jackpot is more than $500 million.

Mega Millions is played in 44 US states including Washington, DC and the US Virgin Islands.

After no one hit all the numbers in Tuesday's drawing, the prize jumped from $458 million to $521 million with a $317 million cash option. Three tickets - from California, Florida and Tennessee - shared that prize.
