Mega Millions results for 08/11/17; did anyone win the $393M jackpot?

LANSING, MI — The fifth largest Mega Millions jackpot ever has been won by a lucky player in Illinois. That player matched all five white numbers drawn and the Mega ball to become the winner of the $393 million jackpot, for the drawing held on Friday, Aug. 11.

A little over a month ago, that win would not have been possible as the state of Illinois had to suspend play of the Mega Millions and Powerball games due to a budget battle. Players were unable to buy tickets for over a week in those games.

Luckily for whomever won last night’s huge jackpot, that issues had been resolved.

The Mega Millions drawing on Tuesday, Aug. 15 will have a jackpot of $15 million with a cash option of $9 million.
