ATLANTA (AP) The drawing for what could be the single biggest lottery payout the world has ever seen is finally here.
The numbers drawn Friday night in Atlanta were 2-4-23-38-46, Mega Ball 23.
A $640 million jackpot is up for grabs. Taken as a lump sum, it would amount to $462 million — or about $347 million after federal tax withholding. It will be a couple of hours for details on possible winners come out.
Across the country, Americans plunked down an estimated $1.5 billion on the longest of long shots: 1 in 176 million.
The rarity of Friday’s jackpot was fueling the fervor. Lines formed at grocery stores, gas stations, liquor stops and other venues across the country.
