Winners of $319 Million jackpot have yet to come forward

The Mega Millions lottery announced its winning numbers of the $319 million jackpot on Friday in Albany, N.Y., but the winners have yet to claim the prize.

Coulson's News Center in downtown Albany sold the only winning ticket of the lottery played in 41 states, including the District of Columbia and the U.S. Virgin Islands, meaning the jackpot will not have to be shared, in a Times Union story.

According to CNN News, the winners were seven IT specialists from New York's Housing and Community Renewal, who will together share a lump sum of $202.9 million.

25 percent in federal taxes and 8.97 percent in state taxes is taken off the top of the jackpot, which amounts in $116.1 million taken from the $319 million jackpot.

The winning numbers were 22, 24, 31, 52, and 54. The Mega Ball number was 4.

The winners of the jackpot have up to one year after the winning numbers were announced to claim their prize.
