Search is on for $227 million lottery winner in Texas

News

Someone in the Lone Star State will likely be entering a new tax bracket.

A jackpot-winning Mega Millions ticket was sold at the Lakeline Express Mart in Cedar Park, Texas.

The lucky numbers chosen were 6-14-24-42-46, and the Mega Ball was 9.

The customer who correctly picked those numbers took the cash value option.

That means the winner will walk home with more than $157 million, which is not bad for a $2 ticket.

Lottery officials say this is the largest prize payout ever in Texas to a single player.

The winner has 180 days from the draw date to collect the cash.

The place that sold the winning ticket also gets a nice payday of $1 million.
