According to the Illinois Lottery, a ticket matching five of six Mega Millions numbers worth $1 million was sold at the JM Food Shop at 11200 N. IL Route 47 in Huntley.

According to the Mega Millions website, five other states sold “Match 5” winning tickets, worth $1 million each: California, Florida, New Jersey, New York and Ohio. Officials say New Jersey and New York each sold two “Match 5” winning tickets.

The next Mega Millions draw is scheduled for Friday at 10:00 p.m. CT, with the jackpot ballooning to $1.02 billion. This is the third time in history that the jackpot has exceeded $1 billion.

The record Mega Millions prize is $1.536 billion, sold in October 2018. Powerball holds the world record for a jackpot worth $1.586 billion, which was split between three winning tickets on January 13, 2016.

And although the jackpot has increased, the odds of winning all that money have remained the same – a staggering one in 302.5 million.

Mega Millions is played in 45 states as well as Washington, DC and the US Virgin Islands. Gambling is overseen by state lottery officials.
