Check your lottery tickets, Illinoisans!  Someone just won big money playing the Mega Millions this past Tuesday night.

I buy lottery tickets online because I get too anxious asking for a lotto ticket at the gas station.  It paid off for one online player in Illinois, too!

They played the Mega Millions online and matched all six numbers:

19, 37, 40, 63, 69, 17

A jackpot of $560 million.  If the winner decides to take the cash option, they'll receive roughly $264 million.  Not a bad deal if all you had to spend was $2 for a ticket!

Now that's life-changing money.  They haven't announced the winner's name and I highly doubt they'll show their face when they get their giant check.

Now that the jackpot is won, it'll reset to $20 million for the next drawing on Friday, June 7th. So, there’s still a chance to become a millionaire in the next draw!
