$393M Winning Mega Millions Ticket Sold in IL

No Powerball winner jackpot climbs again

One down, one to go.

The $393 million grand prize ticket was sold in Palos Heights, a suburb of Chicago.

Friday's winning numbers were 23, 33, 53, 56, 58 and the Mega Ball 6. The estimated cash value is $256 million plus a $500,000 selling bonus for the retailer.

This is the fourth Mega Millions jackpot won this year.

A record $1.586 billion Powerball jackpot was shared in January 2016 by ticket holders in California, Florida and Tennessee. That big stake has been working since June 10.

The Powerball jackpot is still growing, and will be drawn on Saturday, August 11th.

The chances of winning either amusement are outrageous - one of every 292 million for Powerball, and one of every 259 million for Mega Millions.

If you didn't win, don't feel bad, the odds of holding the winning ticket was one in 258,900,000.

Three tickets matched five of the white balls without landing the gold mega ball to take home the game's second prize, those tickets were drawn in Washington state, California and Ohio.

There's no debating Americans adore purchasing lottery tickets. Never even knew they had lottery. That's more than on movies, video games, books, music and sports tickets - combined.
