Someone bought a Mega Millions ticket worth $3 million in Brownsville, according to the Texas Lottery Commission.

The Lottery Commission announced the news Wednesday morning on Twitter.

A lucky player purchased the winning ticket at Stripes #5123 at 4100 Coffee Port Road in Brownsville. The player selected the "quick pick" option.

To win $3 million, a player must correctly guess — or the computer must randomly select — all five numbers and purchase the "Megaplier" option, according to the Lottery Commission website.

Nobody won the jackpot.
