BOSTON - One Mega Millions ticket for the $1.28 billion jackpot was drawn in Illinois Friday night. The winning numbers drawn were: 13, 36, 45, 57, 67 and Mega Ball 14. 

The cash option for the jackpot is $747.2 million.

Twenty tickets matched all five numbers, including one ticket sold in New Hampshire. This ticket is worth $1 million. 

No one has won the jackpot since April 15.  This is now the third largest lottery prize of all time in the U.S. and the second-largest Mega Millions prize.

The largest Mega Millions jackpot was in October 2018 when one winning ticket sold in South Carolina was worth $1.537 billion.

The world record for the largest lottery prize is the $1.586 billion Powerball jackpot won in January 2016. It was shared by winners in California, Florida and Tennessee.
