Illinois Ticket Holder Wins The Mega Millions $1.3 Billion Jackpot


The Mega Millions jackpot finally has a winner!

On Friday, a ticket holder in Illinois won the $1.3 billion prize. The winning numbers were listed as 13, 36, 45, 57, 67, and the gold Mega ball was 14. The Megaplier was 2X. The winning ticket was sold at the Speedy Café Speedway gas station in Des Plaines, Illinois.

“Congratulations to the Illinois Lottery for selling the winning ticket for the $1.337 billion Mega Millions jackpot. We are thrilled to have witnessed one of the biggest jackpot wins in Mega Millions history,” Ohio Lottery Director Pat McDonald said.

“We’re eager to find out who won and look forward to congratulating the winner soon! Better still, this exciting jackpot run has had a significant positive impact on the revenues for good causes raised by our member lotteries.”

The winner’s identity may be revealed, but the new billionaire has the option to remain anonymous. Some states have public disclosure laws that require the identity of winners to be published. However, Illinois does not.

“If your prize is $250,000 or greater, you may request to keep your name and municipality of residence confidential. By indicating that choice on the Illinois Lottery Winner Claim Form,” Illinois Lottery rules state.

The policy continues, “You must make this request at the time of claiming the prize. If you do not, to assure the public that prizes are won and awarded, the Illinois Lottery will routinely publish winner information, including the winner’s name, home city, and the amount won.”
