Mega Millions player wins $1 million in Florida. Where was the lucky ticket sold?

A lottery player just missed a massive jackpot prize — but still won big in Florida.

The lucky person scored $1 million after buying a ticket for the Mega Millions game. It turns out, the ticket matched five of six numbers picked in the drawing on Tuesday, Feb. 27, according to the Florida Lottery.

The numbers picked that night were: white balls 6-18-26-27-49, with Mega Ball number 4.

The winning ticket, which matched all the white balls, was sold for $2 at the 7-Eleven convenience store on St. Lucie West Boulevard in Port St. Lucie. The player chose the Quick Pick option, meaning the ticket was given randomly chosen numbers, lottery officials told McClatchy News in an email.

The Florida lottery player was one number from winning the estimated jackpot prize of $563 million. Instead, the winner beat 1-in-12.6 million odds to score $1 million, the largest amount won the night of the drawing, results show.

As of early Feb. 28, no one had claimed the $1 million prize. In Florida, winners of drawing game prizes have about six months to come forward, according to lottery rules.

Port St. Lucie is roughly 115 miles north of Miami.
