California Lottery spokesman Alex Traverso told the Associated Press on Tuesday night that the winning ticket was sold in San Jose, Calif.

There may be other winners. Mega Millions lead director Paula Otto said Tuesday night that game officials' count was not complete yet.

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) -- The numbers have been drawn for the $636 million Mega Millions jackpot.

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

It's the second-largest lottery jackpot in U.S. history.

The Mega Millions jackpot has been growing for weeks because of a game revamp that dramatically lowered the odds of winning the top prize to about 1 in 259 million.

It used to be about 1 in 176 million, nearly the same odds of winning a Powerball jackpot.
