A Maine resident purchased the winning ticket ahead of Friday $1.35 billion Mega Millions jackpot drawing — the second-largest in the game's history, lottery officials said.
The lotto winner matched all six numbers in the game, which hasn't crowned a jackpot winner since Oct. 14.
Some state lottery officials do not identify winners out of concern for their privacy and security.
With no winner earlier this week, Friday’s top prize grew to surpass the $1.35 billion jackpot won in July 2022.
Friday's winner can choose between accepting 30 annuity payments worth the $1.35 billion, or a one-time cash payment of $724.6 million.
You still have a shot at becoming a Mega Million billionaire.
Nobody matched the six numbers — 7, 13, 14, 15, 18 and Mega Ball 9 — Tuesday night to win the $1.1 billion jackpot, which means the prize will keep growing.
When the numbers are drawn again Friday night, the jackpot will be worth about $1.35 billion, the second-highest top prize in the game's history, according to the Mega Millions website.
Tuesday's $1.1 billion was the third-highest amount for a Mega Millions jackpot, bested only by the $1.5 billion won in October 2018 and the $1.3 billion in July 2022.
Under that “lump sum” choice, the most money a winner was likely to see from the jackpot was very close to one-third of the $1.1 billion, $363.4 million, the publication said.
