The popular lottery game is played in 44 states across the U.S. Drawings for the jackpot are held twice a week on Tuesday and Wednesday nights, according to the lottery website. The jackpots start at $40 million and increase by a minimum of $5 million each drawing until there is a winner.

The last person to claim a Mega Millions prize was a man from Kansas. Hira Singh of Shawnee, Kansas won the $50 million jackpot prize during the March 12 drawing, according to a press release from the Missouri Lottery. Singh said he purchased the winning ticket at QuikTrip in Kansas City, Missouri, where he fills up for gas when he’s traveling to and from work.

Singh checked his numbers on Saturday at a Check-A-Ticket machine and found out that he was a winner.

“I prayed upon my God and then scanned it,” he told lottery officials. “Then I checked it like three more times!”

Singh claimed his prize in Jefferson City, Missouri, on Thursday and told lottery officials he was “still surprised” of the win. He said he’s still thinking about how he’s going to spend the money. The QuikTrip Singh purchased his tickets will also receive a $50,000 bonus check for selling the winning tickets.

“It’s so much fun to see our players win,” said May Scheve Reardon, executive director of the Missouri Lottery, in a statement. “Mr. Singh is our 515th Missouri-Lottery made millionaire, and because this Mega Millions win happened in Missouri, the state will collect approximately $1.2 million in state income tax on his lump-sum prize.”

Mega Millions jackpot on Friday night is worth $50 million with a cash option of $30.2 million.
