According to Mega Millions, only one jackpot-winning ticket was sold in a Speedway convenience store in Des Plaines, Illinois, for the unprecedented $1.34 billion drawing.
In the drawing held on Friday night, one ticket had a six-number match. The super ball was 14, and the winning numbers were 67, 45, 57, 36, 13, and.
According to Harold Mays, director of the Illinois lottery, the prize had officially increased to $1.34 billion from its initial estimate of $1.28 billion.
According to him, the award is worth $780 million in cash.
The jackpot award has surpassed $1 billion for the third time in the 20-year history of the American lottery game.
No ticket matched all six numbers drawn on Tuesday night, therefore the jackpot increased to an estimated $1.28 billion, or $648.2 million in cash, according to a Mega Millions press release.
Only the record $1.537 billion jackpot won in South Carolina on October 23, 2018 — the highest lottery payout ever won on a single ticket — is larger in Mega Millions history than this one.
"Being present for one of the largest jackpot victories in Mega Millions history makes us very happy.
The winner will be announced soon, and we can't wait to congratulate them!" Pat McDonald, director of the Ohio Lottery
For the drawing on Tuesday, the jackpot has been reset to $20 million.
The Mega Millions drawing on Friday night was the thirty-first in this jackpot run that started on April 19.
The Mega Millions jackpot hasn't been won in Tennessee since April 15 in 29 draws.
There have been more than 28.1 million winning tickets across all reward tiers, including 42 in 17 states that were for $1 million or more.
Since the beginning of the year, four Mega Millions jackpots have been won in California, New York, Minnesota, and Tennessee.
According to game sales and interest rates, Mega Millions prizes begin at $20 million and increase over time.
The chances of winning the grand prize remain the same, at 1 in 303 million, despite a spike in ticket purchases.
