BATON ROUGE, LA (NBC33) — It was the largest lottery jackpot in history - more than $600-million - and after last Friday's drawing we know there are three winning tickets; one sold in Illinois, Kansas and Maryland. The actual winners are still a mystery.
Here in Baton Rouge one lucky winner matched five numbers in Friday's big drawing. It may not be millions, but that person gets $250,000 as a prize.
The store that sold it, Jeff's Food Mart on Jefferson Highway is also getting some bonus cash.
The store will get one-percent of the prize.
In this case that's $2,500.
