The winner of the second largest Mega Millions jackpot has yet to claim the $1,337 million you won by matching the appropriate numbers.
This was confirmed by the director of the Illinois Lottery, Harold Mays, Saturday in Chicago. The authorities also explained that the prize was bigger due to accumulation in the last hours.
“We haven’t heard from the winner. We don’t know if… he even knows he won an award. So I encourage everyone to check the tickets,” Mays said.
Although Mega Millions winners can remain anonymous, the lottery office regularly notifies when the money was claimed and how it was requested, either in part or in full.
The winning ticket was purchased at a Speedway gas station in Des Plaines, about 20 miles northwest of downtown Chicago, authorities confirmed, but that doesn’t mean whoever bought it lived in the neighborhood.
If the owner chooses the cash option, he will have to pay $780 million.
If you prefer to split it, then you will receive 30 annual payments.
The winning numbers for Friday night are 13, 36, 45, 57, 67 and Mega Ball 14.
Speedway convenience store will receive $500,000 for selling winning tickets, the state Lottery office said.
“We are delighted to have witnessed one of the biggest jackpots in Mega Millions history. We can’t wait to find out who won and look forward to congratulating the winners soon!”, said in a press release Pat McDonald, managing director of the Mega Millions Consortium.
