At least one person in IL is waking Saturday up a Mega Millions jackpot victor. It was the largest jackpot in nearly a year, and the fifth largest prize in the game's 15 year history.
Friday's jackpot had been growing since April 28, the last time a ticket matched all six numbers. If you weren't the big victor, you still have another chance to cash in on a huge prize. Saturday night's Powerball lottery drawing is expected to be around $356 million, with a cash option of $224 million. That big stake has been working since June 10. Winners have one year from the date of the drawing to claim their winnings.
