    The cash option is estimated to be $253.1 million as the convenience store will receive $10,000 for selling the ticket.

    Hopeful millionaires have a 1-in-302,575,350 chance of hitting the Mega Millions jackpot, according to the lottery.

    Two tickets — one in Illinois and one in Massachusetts — matched the five white balls to win $1 million each.

    Seventeen tickets matched four numbers plus the Mega Ball for a prize of $10,000 including one from New York.  

    It is Mega Millions’ first jackpot winner since a $31 million winning ticket was sold in Massachusetts on January 31.

    The win in Massachusetts capped a record month for the lottery when the jackpot was won four times including the second-largest winner in the lotto’s history when a Maine gas station sold the $1.35 billion ticket was sold on January 13. 

    Jerson Garcia of the Bronx won $20 million four days later on January 17.

    The next drawing is set for Tuesday, April 18 with the current starting pot set at $20 million.
