A Mega Millions ticket sold in South Dakota won $1 million, narrowly missing the $284 million jackpot, lottery officials say.

The ticket matched five winning numbers in the Friday, May 3 drawing, but not the Mega Ball, according to the national Mega Millions site.

No one won the top prize, which amounts to an estimated $306 million, with a cash option of about $140 million, for the next drawing on Tuesday, May 7, the site said.

The winning numbers were 6, 13, 15, 53 and 56, with a Mega Ball of 11.

More than 908,000 other tickets sold in the United States also won prizes ranging from $2 to $20,000, the lottery said.
