Posted by wlpo on April 2, 2012

CHICAGO (AP) – Lottery officials say the record-breaking Mega Millions jackpot was even higher than originally announced.

After sales from the 44 state lotteries were totaled, the final jackpot for Friday’s drawing was increased to $656 million. It had previously been reported as $640 million.

Three winners who purchased their tickets in Illinois, Kansas and Maryland will split the prize. None of the winners have been made public.

The three tickets matched all six numbers: 2-4-23-38-46 and had the Mega Ball 23.
