A person who bought a ticket at the Stop & Shop in East Wareham matched all five numbers in Wednesday night's drawing but did not hit the Powerball, according to the Massachusetts State Lottery.

Excitement had already mounted earlier this week as many speculated whether the Mega Millions jackpot would hit a new record high.

Nobody matched all six Powerball numbers during Wednesday evening's drawings, so the jackpot rolls again.

In fact, this July when Mega Millions paid its last jackpot, it was worth more than $543 million, which is the ninth-largest jackpot in USA history.

The Kentucky Lottery says someone in Lexington matched all five white balls, but not the Powerball, to win the game's second prize of $1 million. "That winning retailer was Safeway located at 15 Marina Blvd", said the California Lottery.

It's going to big couple of days for avid lottery players.

Details of where the winning Florida ticket was sold were not immediately available.

"The lottery officials who run Mega Millions tweaked the rules and odds of the game in October past year to make jackpots pay out less frequently, spurring their monster growth", Ascienzo, who has studied lottery ticket purchase data from 2012 to 2018, tells FOX Business.

Lottery officials have urged winners to take a deep breath, put their winning ticket in a safe spot, and consult with a reputable financial planner before popping over to the lottery headquarters, according to The Associated Press.

The Powerball game has not seen a grand prize victor since August 11.
