The $522 million jackpot was won on a single ticket in California.
The winning ticket was purchased at Ernie's Liquors and comes with a one-time cash option of $308 million (£234m).
The Mega Millions pot, which increased by $10 million a few hours before the 11 p.m. ET drawing, is the fifth largest in that game's history.
A $1 million winning ticket for the same drawing was sold at Lee's Supermarket in Brighton. Results from other states are still pending, to see if the San Jose victor may have to divide the winnings. Eight tickets matched the five white balls to win the game's second prize.
