Lottery officials confirmed Saturday that three winners -- in Maryland, Illinois and Kansas -- will split Friday's record $656 million Mega Millions jackpot, CNN reports.
That equals approximately $218.6 million each.
The winning numbers were 2, 4, 23, 38, 46 with a Mega Ball of 23.
FOX NEWS reports Illinois' winning ticket was sold in the small town of Red Bud, near St. Louis, and the winner used a quick pick to select the numbers, Illinois Lottery spokesman Mike Lang said.
The Maryland Lottery said it sold a winning ticket at a retail store in Baltimore County, according to FOX NEWS. A winning ticket also was purchased in northeast Kansas, according to the Kansas Lottery website.
Americans spent nearly $1.5 billion for a chance to hit the jackpot, which amounts to a $462 million lump sum and around $347 million after federal tax withholding, FOX NEWS reports.
