One ticket in San Jose, California, matched all the numbers for the more than half a billion dollars. If the victor takes the lump sum, the cash payout is worth $303 million. But on Tuesday, it wasn't just the jackpot victor who got lucky.
There is one winning ticket in the latest Mega Millions drawing.
The estimated jackpot prize amount has been revised based on final sales totals and is now worth an $543 million, up from an estimated $522 million.
The store will receive a $30,000 bonus for its sale of the ticket.

Trump and Coats appeared to be at odds in the aftermath of the President's meeting with Putin at the beginning of the week. The timing of that announcement was "unfortunate", said the official who defended Coats.
The winning ticket was sold in San Jose at Earnie's Liquors on South White Road where a crowd of well-wishers gathered after the announcement.
The victor of the ticket has not officially come forward.
For the next drawing on Friday, July 27, the jackpot resets to its starting value of $40 million ($23.6 million cash).
It is the fifth-largest prize in the game's history, which sparked a wave of social media daydreaming about what people would do if they won. Two of those tickets included the optional Megaplier and are worth $3 million each. Winners in Illinois, Kansas and Maryland split $656 million.
