DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — Lottery officials say winning  tickets have been sold in California and Atlanta, Georgia for the $636 million Mega Millions jackpot, the second-largest lottery prize in U.S. history.

The winning numbers were: 8, 14, 17, 20, 39; Mega Ball: 7.

Paula Otto, the Virginia Lottery’s executive director and the lead director of Mega Millions, said that at least $636 million in tickets were sold for Tuesday’s drawing — they had projected $319 million.

California Lottery spokesman Alex Traverso said Tuesday night that one ticket was sold at Jennifer’s Gift Shop in San Jose, Calif.

The Georgia ticket was sold at a Gateway Newstand at 3500 Lenox Rd. in Buckhead.

The jackpot resets to $15 million for the next drawing, which is on Friday night.
