Two tickets matched all numbers in the $636 Mega Millions lottery jackpot on Tuesday – one in Atlanta’s Buckhead community and another one in California
Georgia Lottery Corporation officials said a winning ticket was sold at Gateway Newstand at 3500 Lenox Road in Buckhead. The other ticket matching all six numbers was sold at a gift shop in San Jose, Calif.
The winning numbers are 8-14-17-20-39 and Mega Ball 7.
The jackpot was estimated at $636 million when the drawing was held late Tuesday. Once sales figures are compiled by the 45 Mega Millions lotteries, the final jackpot amount will be announced.
The jackpot began rolling Oct. 4 and rolled over 21 times before there was a winning ticket.
In addition to the two jackpot-winning tickets, there were 20 $1 million winners in Tuesday’s drawing, and a large number of tickets won lesser prizes, lottery officials said.
