The ticket, sold at Nick's Barbecue, 1265 S. Harlem Ave.in Palos Heights, matched all of the numbers - 23 - 33 - 53 - 56 - 58 and the Mega Ball of 06 - in Friday night's Mega Millions drawing, according to a statement from the Illinois Lottery.
It's the largest jackpot Mega Millions has had in nearly a year and the fifth largest prize in the game's 15-year history.
A $393 million dollar jackpot ticket was sold at a popular local barbecue place in Palos Heights.
Also in Friday's drawing, three tickets matched the five white balls to win the game's second prize.
It's the primary big stake victor in Mega Millions since April 28. Saturday night's Powerball drawing is expected cross $356 million. That is the fourteenth biggest big stake in Powerball's history. That jackpot has been building since June 10.
The odds of buying a jackpot-winning ticket are 258,890,850 to 1. Your chances of winning both jack pots are one in 75 quadrillion (that's fifteen zeros). A Texas man named Eliberto Cantu, who won $177 million from a ticket he purchased in Arkansas, was the other jackpot victor this year.
If you happened to have the winning numbers, return to the store you purchased the ticket from and let the spending begin. They spent just over $80 billion on lottery games previous year, according to the North American Association of State and Provincial Lotteries. That is more than on motion pictures, computer games, books, music and games tickets - consolidated.
Each game is offered in every state except Alabama, Alaska, Hawaii, Mississippi, Nevada and Utah.
