The winning numbers for Friday night's $1.28 billion prize were 13-36-45-57-67, Mega Ball 14 and Megaplier 2. The cash option was $747.2 million.
As of Saturday morning, the lottery game's website said results were still being compiled -- but the Illinois Lottery's website said someone in the state bought the jackpot-winning Mega Millions ticket. Another ticket sold in Illinois matched the five white balls to win $1 million.
The Mega Millions jackpot record is $1.537 billion, won by a single ticket sold in South Carolina in 2018. That's the second-largest jackpot for any US lottery game, though it's the world's largest lottery prize won by just one ticket, according to Mega Millions.
We are waiting for further confirmation.
