News slowly creeping out of the United States is that at least one winner matched all drawn numbers in last night's historic Mega Millions lottery draw.
Lottery officials from Maryland released a statement before official winning statistics were even released, claiming a winner emerged from their state, with the ticket being purchased somewhere in Baltimore County.
At this point, it's not yet clear whether there were additional winners from other states. It does, however, remain a statistical probability as Mega Millions operators claimed 95% of all number variations were sold.
Final results are expected to be released by mid-morning central.
In a statement released after the draw, officials claimed record sales of $1.5 billion as millions of hopefuls lined up for their chance at the record-breaking jackpot.
