Showing that things are bigger in Texas, a Leander resident has claimed the $227 million Mega Millions jackpot from the September 24 drawing.

The lucky winner, who has chosen to remain anonymous, matched all six numbers drawn on September 24, 2019: main numbers 6, 14, 24, 42, 46 and Mega Ball 9.

The winning ticket was a Quick Pick purchased at Lakeline Express Mart at 2004 N. Lakeline Blvd. in Cedar Park. The retailer has been paid a $1 million bonus.

The winner has opted to receive a one-time cash value payment of $157,091,592. It's the biggest lottery prize ever won by a single ticket in Texas.

Texas joined Mega Millions in 2003 and had its first jackpot winner the next year when Ut Van Nguyen of Carrollton won $101 million on October 1, 2004.
