1 Winning Ticket In $319 Million Jackpot

New York (CNN) - One lucky winner in upstate New York chose the right numbers in Friday night's Mega Millions lottery, in which last-minute ticket sales increased the jackpot from $312 million to $319 million, New York Lottery spokeswoman Carolyn Hapeman said Saturday.

The winning ticket was sold at Coulson's News Central in Albany, New York.

If the winner chose the cash option when buying the ticket, he or she will receive a one-time, lump-sum payment of $202.9 million. That amount reflects all the cash in the Mega Millions pool and is thesixth-largest jackpot in its history, according to New York Lottery spokeswoman Carolyn Hapeman.

It's also the single largest sole jackpot winning ticket ever for Mega Millions sold in New York, she said.

Friday night's winning numbers were 22, 24, 31, 52 and 54. The Mega Ball number was 4.

The owner of the winning ticket, who has yet to come forward, will be able to collect the prize money Monday morning in the Schenectady office, Hapeman said.

Mega Millions is played in 42 states and is the biggest jackpot game in the country, according to the lottery.
