Winning Mega Millions ticket sold in Illinois

Posted: Updated:

A single ticket, sold in Illinois, matched all six numbers drawn in Friday night's Mega Millions.

The winning numbers for the August 11 drawing are the white balls 23, 33, 53, 56 and 58, plus the Mega Ball 6.

The ticket is worth an estimated $393 million ($247 million cash) – the largest jackpot in almost a year, and the fifth largest prize in the game’s 15-year history.

The winning ticket was purchased at Nick's Barbecue in Palos Heights, Illinois.

Also in Friday’s drawing, three tickets matched the five white balls to win the game’s second prize.

One, sold in Washington, included the optional Megaplier (a $1 extra purchase available in most states) to win $5 million after the 5x Megaplier was drawn; the others were sold in California and Ohio.

The jackpot resets to $15 million ($9 million cash) for the next drawing on Tuesday, August 15.

Meanwhile, the jackpot for Saturday's Powerball drawing has reached $356 million. That translates to a cash value of $224 million.
