Illinois Winners Claim Mega Millions Jackpot

Two people are claiming the one-point-three-billion-dollar Mega Millions jackpot that was drawn nearly two months ago in Illinois.  The pair wishes to remain anonymous and have opted to split the lump sum payment of 780-million-dollars.  The winning ticket was sold at a Speedway in Des Plaines and the drawing took place July 29th.  It was the third largest jackpot in U.S. history.
