TALLAHASSEE – The Florida Lottery is excited to announce that one Mega Millions jackpot-winning ticket was purchased in Florida from Friday night’s drawing. The winning Quick Pick ticket was purchased at a 7-Eleven located at 7131 Ridge Road in Port Richey.

The Jan. 5 Mega Millions winning numbers were 28-30-39-59-70 and the Mega Ball was 10. One Florida ticket matched all five numbers and the Mega Ball from Friday night’s drawing to claim the $450 million Mega Millions jackpot. The retailer will receive a $100,000 bonus commission for selling the jackpot-winning ticket.

The Florida Mega Millions jackpot winner has 180 days from the date of the drawing to claim the prize. However, to elect the one-time, lump-sum cash payment option (in the amount of $281.2 million) the claim must be filed within 60 days after the winning draw date.
