Illinois couple claims the final Mega Millions prize

| No Comments

The last of the Mega Millions lottery winners are a married couple from Red Bud, Ill., and they will claim their share in the biggest jackpot in lottery history today, ABC News said.

The couple will appear at a news conference today to have their identity revealed for the first time. Illinois officials require winners to come forward in order to prove to the public that the money is being rewarded.

The other two Mega Millions lottery winners were from Kansas and Maryland, and those states do not require the winner to go public.

The newly-crowned multimillionaires can decide between receiving 26 yearly payments totaling $218.6 million or a one-time lump sum of $157.8 million.
