The winning numbers were: 8, 14, 17, 20, 39; Mega Ball 7
ATLANTA (AP) - Two winning tickets were sold in the $636 million Mega Millions drawing: one at a tiny newsstand in Atlanta, and the other more than 2,000 miles away in California.
Mega Millions Executive Director Paula Otto says the lucky Georgia ticket in Tuesday's drawing was sold at a Gateway Newsstand in the affluent Buckhead area. Owner Young Soolee grinned as she arrived Wednesday morning at the shop, off the beaten path to the public and frequented by workers from the Alliance Center office building.
The California ticket was sold at Jennifer's Gift Shop in San Jose.
The winning numbers were: 8, 14, 17, 20, 39; Mega Ball 7.
The jackpot is the second-largest lottery prize in U.S. history. It started its ascent Oct. 4. Otto says 22 draws came and went without winners.
