According to the website for the Mega Millions lottery, a lottery player from Des Plaines, Illinois, won the $1.337 billion jackpot on Friday night. The jackpot for the Mega Millions lottery has since been reset to $20 million, and players now have the option of receiving their winnings in cash.

How do I get started with Powerball?
Drawings for the Powerball take place three times a week, at 10:59 p.m. on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday of each week. Monday drawings were added in 2021.
The price of each ticket is $2, but for an additional dollar, you can purchase the Power Play option, which can multiply the amount of the prize you could potentially win by a factor of up to five (except for the jackpot and Match 5). When the jackpot is less than $150 million, there is also the opportunity to participate in a 10x Power Play.
Each participant chooses five numbers between 1 and 69 for the white balls, and one number between 1 and 26 for the Powerball. You also have the option of having the lottery machine generate a quick pick ticket for you, which will have numbers chosen at random.
Prizes range from $4 for correctly matching the Powerball to $1 million (except in California) for correctly matching all five white balls to the grand prize of the jackpot for correctly matching all six balls. On this page of the Powerball website, you can view the total prize money that has been distributed.
