A Mega Millions jackpot worth an estimated $522 million has been won in San Jose, California in one of the largest drawings in the lottery’s history.

A single winning ticket matched the five white-ball numbers (1, 2, 4, 19 and 29) as well as the gold Mega Ball (20) on Tuesday night to win the massive half-billion-plus jackpot, or about $308.1 million in cash, according to a statement from Mega Millions.

The jackpot had been growing for 11 weeks.

“This has been an exciting roll,” Mega Millions director Gordon Medenica said in the statement. “Congratulations to California for taking home the fifth largest jackpot in Mega Millions history.”

Lottery officials said the winning ticket was sold at Ernie’s Liquors in San Jose. The store was not yet open for comment early Wednesday morning.

The winner’s identity has not been revealed.

Mega Millions officials said eight additional tickets matched the five white balls to win at least $1 million each.
