The winner of the $1.28 billion Mega Millions Jackpot was reportedly sold their ticket at a gas station just outside Chicago, Fox News reported on Saturday.
The winner had a one in three hundred and three million chance of pulling the correct number sequence to score one of the biggest lotteries ever.
The ticket buyer will now enjoy the third largest jackpot in U.S. history, behind the second highest of $1.537 billion and the largest ever of $1.586 billion.
If the winner opts to take the whole prize all at once, they’ll receive $747 million. Twenty-six secondary winners also won over $1 million from the mega jackpot.
Raising Canes CEO Todd Graves found himself disappointed after reportedly buying fifty thousand tickets each for the Monday and Tuesday night’s drawings.
Those who didn’t win must continue facing reality and just try their luck again, for the next Mega Millions jackpot.
The jackpot will now return to a much lower $20 million and will bounce back as game sales grow, however, it could be some time before it ever reaches this level again.
