Ticket bought in Illinois wins the $1.28 billion Mega Millions jackpot

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) – Someone beat all the odds to win the estimated $1.28 billion Mega Millions jackpot.

Lottery officials say there is a winning ticket and it was purchased in Illinois.

The winning numbers drawn on Friday night are: 13-36-45-57-67, with a Mega Ball of 14.

The jackpot is the third largest lottery win in the nation.

It got so big because no one had matched the game’s six chosen numbers since April 15th.

That’s 29 consecutive draws without a jackpot winner.

The $1.28 billion prize is for winners who choose the annuity option, which is paid annually over 29 years.

Most winners are opting for the cash option, which was an estimated $747.2 million for Friday night’s drawing.
