Winning $393M Mega Millions ticket sold in IL

Posted August 13, 2017

MEGA MILLIONS jackpot prizes may be paid in 30 annual installments or a one-time, lump-sum payment that jackpot winners may choose to receive instead of receiving their winnings in annual payments. The winning numbers in Friday's drawing were 23, 33, 53, 56, 58, and Mega Ball 6. One August jackpot victor never claimed his/her prize - $31 million won in NY on August 1, 2006. This was the fifth largest prize in the game's 15 year history. The winning ticket bought at Nick's Barbecue in Palos Heights matched all six numbers, game officials said. Of these, the winning ticket from Washington also included the optional Megaplier which costs an extra $1 over and above the $2 ticket price.

The Mega Millions and Powerball are at their highest combined point in history, totally $749 million.

The jackpot resets to $15 million ($9 million cash) for the next drawing on Tuesday, August 15.

That's a cash value of $224 million if you take the lump sum.

This case highlights the importance of sexual assault and it's a great experience for girls to see that it will not be tolerated. He also said it was an assault, not inappropriate touching. "This side has never changed its position", he said.

The chances of winning either amusement are outrageous - one of every 292 million for Powerball, and one of every 259 million for Mega Millions.

The jackpot is only the fourth to be won this year, with the grand price climbing steadily since David Trapp won $61 million in California on April 28.

If you're buying dozens of tickets, that can make going through them once the numbers are announced a little easier; although with $356 million on the line I imagine I would still meticulously go through all my tickets anyway before tossing them.
