The estimated $180 million Mega Millions jackpot ($107.1 million cash option) was won in California on August 22, 2014. A single ticket matched all six numbers in the drawing – the white balls 5, 31, 34, 41 and 74 plus the Mega Ball of 3.
The winning ticket was sold at a 7-Eleven store in Calimesa, Calif. It marks California’s second jackpot winner this year, following a $30 million prize won in Los Angeles on April 4.
In addition to the jackpot winning ticket, the August 22 drawing produced a $1 million Match 5 winner in Pennsylvania. It was that state’s fourth Match 5 winner since Mega Millions was relaunched last October, including a $5 million prize on January 3 thanks to the Megaplier option.
