Mega Millions lottery jackpot of $1.34 billion is won in Illinois

A cardholder in Illinois won the Mega Millions lottery jackpot of $1.34 billion. The lucky winner used lottery number 13-36-45-57-67 and the mega ball number 14. It is not known at this time who the lottery ticket belongs to.

Recently, the jackpot was increased to $1.28 billion, although this was later found to be incorrect. No one has won the top prize since the 15 April draw, although there have been 29 draws since then. The money originally started at a lofty amount earlier today, and was then raised even more.

Third highest prize money in lottery history

The jackpot is the third highest prize money in US history. The highest jackpot ever was over $1.5 billion.

Others moved away from the area. In the past, most participants chose to receive the big payout in one go instead of over 30 years. The winner of the contest can choose to spread the money over 30 years, or get almost $750 million in one go.

How much money is deducted depends on where the winner lives. Taxes are deducted from the amount of money won.
