WESTWOOD (CBS) — One ticket with all six numbers in Tuesday’s multi-state Mega Millions draw was sold at a gas station in Westwood.

The lucky ticket was sold at the Mobil station at 10857 Santa Monica Blvd., according to a California Lottery official.

Eight tickets with five numbers, each missing the Mega number, were sold in Georgia, Louisiana, New York, Ohio, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, South Carolina and Virginia. Those tickets are each worth $250,000.

However, the big winner will either get $18.6 million in cash or receive 26 annual payments of approximately $961,000 each.

The odds of matching all five numbers and the Mega number are 1 in 175,711,536, according to the Mega Millions website.

The jackpot for Friday’s draw will be $12 million.
