    After 14 drawings without a winner, a single ticket sold in the state of Texas finally matched the winning combination of last Friday's Mega Millions drawing: 12 - 24 - 46 - 57 - 66 and the Megaball 22.

    The ticket, sold with the Quick Pick option (random numbers), was purchased in one of the supermarkets of the Stripes chain, located on Sherwood Way in San Angelo, a city of 93,200 inhabitants in the state of Texas, USA.

    The great novelty of the draw is that this prize, which finally amounted to 360 million dollars after the final counting of tickets, became the largest jackpot won in the state of Texas. With this, there are now 14 people who have won a Mega Millions lottery jackpot in the state of Texas.

    Although the identity of the winner is not yet known, since according to lottery authorities in Texas he has not yet come forward to claim the prize, it is known that he had opted for the option of collecting the money in a single cash payment, which will reduce his prize to about $156.9 million after deductions and taxes that apply to this form of payment.

    Under Texas law, the winner has 180 days from the date of the drawing to claim his or her prize. In addition, the state of Texas is one of 11 states in the United States that allows lottery winners to remain anonymous, so it will not be necessary for them to reveal their identity in order to claim the prize.

    On the other hand, the Stripes store where the ticket was sold may receive a prize of 1 million dollars as compensation for having sold the winning ticket.
