Due to high sales, the jackpot from last night’s Mega Millions drawing has increased to $1.337 billion.

One lucky Illinois Lottery player has scooped the top prize. The winning ticket was purchased at the Speedway at 885 E Touhy Ave, Des Plaines, IL 60018

“This is the largest lottery prize ever won in Illinois, and the second largest Mega Millions prize ever won,” said Director Mays

The jackpot has been rolling since April 16, 2022, culminating in last night’s historic win in Illinois

Millions of people across the country had tickets for the draw. We’re thrilled that an Illinois Lottery player won this prize

While the winner has 12 months from the date of the draw to claim their prize, they only have 60 days from the date of the draw to choose the cash option or annual payments

Excluding the jackpot, in total, over 390,000 Illinois Lottery players won prizes totalling more than $2.5 million

The Illinois Lottery exists to generate essential funding for K-12 education across the State. Approximately 23 cents of every dollar spent on the lottery is returned to education and good causes
