Mega Millions winner in Illinois still a mystery

Posted by wlpo on January 19, 2015

SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (AP) – The speculation continues as Illinois Lottery officials say they’ve set up a phone number so the winner of last week’s $270 million Mega Millions drawing can come forward.

Lottery Director Michael Jones says whoever is holding the winning ticket should “please call 217-524-5158 immediately.” It’s the largest jackpot in Illinois Lottery history.

The winning numbers drawn Friday were 26, 32, 44, 45 and 58 – plus the Mega Ball of 11. It was the first jackpot win of 2015 and the first by an Illinois player since May 2012.

The winner has up to one year from the drawing date to claim the prize. The ticket was sold at a Bucky’s Express in Glendale Heights.
