There is one victor of the massive mega millions drawing from Friday night. The winning numbers were 28, 30, 39, 59, 70 and the Mega Ball was 10.

Someone who bought a Mega Millions ticket in Florida won the fourth-largest jackpot in the 15-year history of the lottery game. The Stebbins's jackpot holds the record for the largest Mega Millions prize ever won in MI.

The jackpot victor will receive an estimated prize of $450 million ($281 million cash).

Long odds have not halted the spread of "lottery fever", with people lining up to buy the $2-tickets at retailers, said Jeff Lenard, spokesman for the National Association of Convenience Stores, whose members sell about 60 percent of the nation's lottery tickets. We're looking forward to Saturday's $570 million Powerball jackpot.

It was not immediately known where the winning ticket was sold.

The jackpots refer to the annuity options for both games, in which payments are made over 29 years. In this jackpot run, since October 13 there were more than 18.2 million winning tickets at all prize levels. Puerto Rico also participates in Powerball.

The chances of holding a Mega Millions ticket with the winning numbers are about 1 in 302.6 million, while the odds of winning Powerball's jackpot stand at 1 in 292.2 million. According to a study by LendEDU, the average MA resident spends $735 annually on lottery tickets, while those in DE or NY are likely spending about $400 a year, or $33 per month.
