$1.35 billion


Someone beat the unlucky Friday the 13th and won Maine's first Mega Millions jackpot.

when the projected $1.35 billion jackpot for the lottery was won by a ticket bought in the state.

Late Friday night's drawing yielded the fortunate string of numbers: 30, 43, 45, 46, 61, and gold Mega Ball 14.

According to the Maine State Lottery, the winning ticket was purchased at Hometown Gas & Grill in Lebanon, Maine.

Unknown winner beat daunting odds of 1 in 302.6 million, which resulted in three months of lotteries without a jackpot claim.

The prize was the second-largest jackpot in Mega Millions history and the fourth $1 billion jackpot in the history of the game.


In October 2018, a single ticket holder in South Carolina scooped the $1.53 billion top Mega Millions prize.

The seventh time a grand prize winner on Friday the 13th, a day superstitiously thought to be unlucky, occurred in Friday's successful drawing.
