East Texan getting large payout from Mega Millions Lottery

PALESTINE, TX (KLTV) -

The Mega Millions jackpot is now the largest in U.S. Lottery history.

Tuesday night, not one person won the $363 million dollar jackpot, but one East Texan came close to winning it all.

Someone purchased a ticket sold at JJ's fast stop in Palestine and had all five numbers right, but missed the "mega ball".

This East Texan won't win the big jackpot, but will walk away with $250,000.

The next Mega Millions jackpot will be a record $500 million. The drawing will be on Friday.
