On July 29, one very lucky person hit the Mega Millions jackpot winning $1.337 billion. The billion-plus dollar ticket was sold at a Speedway in Des Plaines, Illinois about 20 miles north of Chicago. In fact, the original jackpot was $1.28 billion but increased due to the windfall of ticket sales.

This colossal win was the second biggest jackpot in Mega Millions history. In two decades, it was only topped by the $1.537 billion ticket that was purchased at KC Mart convenience store on Oct. 23, 2018, in Simpsonville, South Carolina. (The largest jackpot of all time was the $1.586 billion Powerball in 2016.)
