The South Carolina Education Lottery said early Wednesday morning that one ticket had matched all six numbers to win the top prize in Tuesday's record-breaking $1.6 billion Mega Millions draw.

The jackpot winner can choose to take either an annuity for the full prize, paid out over 30 years, or a lump sum that would come to about $905 million before taxes.

Mega Millions said it was the largest lottery prize in history, surpassing a $1.586 billion Powerball jackpot that was shared between three tickets in 2016.

The next Mega Millions drawing, which will occur on Oct. 26, will offer a jackpot worth $40 million.
