The winning Mega Millions lottery ticket for Tuesday night’s drawing was purchased at a Midtown Manhattan pizzeria.
The winner also got Mega Ball number 13, and in total, this equates to a prize of $ 432 million dollars that if collected in cash would be about $ 315 million dollars.
Since the last person to win in Illinois on June 8, the award has continued to grow.
In the last 30 drawings, there were more than $ 17.2 million of winning tickets at all levels, including second-place prizes of a million dollars or more.
Last night there was also a second place ticket with a million dollar prize, which was purchased in Connecticut.
The next drawing for the jackpot will take place next Friday, with the winning sum starting over at a value of $ 20 million.
