If you're reading this, you most likely didn't win big in last night's Mega Millions drawing. Womp womp. But a San Antonian was part of the winning circle Tuesday night.

According to a tweet from the Texas Lottery Commission, one lucky player in San Antonio bought a winning ticket at a 7-Eleven in the 800 block of San Pedro Avenue. While the winnings didn't amount to the major $1.537 billion jackpot, the local player won roughly $3 million.
The numbers selected were 5, 28, 62, 65 and 70, with the Mega Ball at 5. The commission hasn't confirmed how many numbers the San Antonio player matched.

As far as the winner of the billion dollar jackpot, reports say the winning ticket was sold in South Carolina. The lump sum payout is reportedly $913 million.
