Two people end up claiming $1.34 billion lottery jackpot

We finally have a winner.

Nearly two months after the Mega Millions $1.34 billion winning ticket was announced, two people have finally claimed the ticket to win the third-largest jackpot in American history, the Illinois Lottery announced Wednesday. The winnings were shared in cooperation: The two winners had agreed before they bought the ticket that they would split the prize.

The winners have also chosen to remain anonymous.

“These winners are now in the enviable position of deciding what to do with their newfound fortune,” Illinois Lottery Director Harold Mays said in a statement.

The winning ticket was announced July 29 in a jackpot roll that starts on April 16. The ticket was bought at a Speedway convenience store in Des Plaines, less than 20 kilometers northwest of Chicago.
