Winning Mega Millions ticket sold in Illinois

Winning Mega Millions ticket sold in Illinois

The victor will get $247 million in cash once the person shows up and contacts them to claim the prize money.

The winning numbers have been drawn for the Mega Millions jackpot.

Friday's jackpot had been growing since April 28, the last time a ticket matched all six numbers. One August jackpot victor never claimed his/her prize - $31 million won in NY on August 1, 2006. It was the fifth largest jackpot in the game's 15-year history.

The restaurant, located at 12658 S. Harlem Ave., will receive a $500,000 bonus for selling the winning ticket, which was a Quick Pick.

The winning numbers on Friday's jackpot ticket, sold at Nick's Barbecue in Palos Heights, Illinois, were 23, 33, 53, 56 and 58 and the Mega Ball was 6. Collectively, that's a grand total worth well over $700 million dollars.

That is the 14th largest jackpot in Powerball's history. He won $61 million.

The others were sold in California and Ohio.

The jackpot in Saturday's (Aug. 12) Powerball drawing is expected to top $350 million.

The odds of winning either jackpot is low - one in about 258.9 million for Mega Millions, and one in 292.2 million for Powerball.
