COLUMBIA, SC (February 19, 2024) – With no winner in Friday night’s Mega Millions® drawing, Tuesday’s jackpot has jumped to $493 MILLION. A single ticket sold in the Upstate missed the jackpot by one number and is worth $40,000.

Check your tickets if you played Mega Millions® at Kent Kwik #702 at 235 E. Main St. in Walhalla for Friday’s drawing.

The winning ticket holder matched four white ball numbers and the gold Megaball® number to win $10,000. Because the player purchased the Megaplier option, their winnings quadrupled to $40,000.
