Mega Millions Jackpot Won in Illinois

RELEASE DATE: 6/5/2024

A ticket sold in Illinois has won the second Mega Millions® jackpot of 2024! After matching all six numbers drawn Tuesday night – the white balls 19, 37, 40, 63 and 69, plus the gold Mega Ball 17 – the single ticket takes the prize of $552 million ($260.2 million cash). The jackpot had been rolling since it was last won at $1.128 billion in New Jersey on March 26. Illinois was one of the founding members of Mega Millions when the game began as The Big Game in 1996; it became Mega Millions in May 2002. The final jackpot amount is different from pre-drawing estimates because jackpots are always awarded based on actual sales.

In addition to the jackpot-winning ticket, there were 944,852 other winning tickets in the June 4 drawing. Two tickets matched the five white balls to win the game’s second-tier prize; they were sold in California and Maryland.

Across the country, 27 tickets matched four white balls plus the Mega Ball to win the game’s third-tier prize. Four are worth $30,000 each because they included the optional Megaplier (available in most states with an extra $1 purchase), which was 3X Tuesday night. The other 23 third-tier winning tickets take home the standard $10,000 each.

In the 20 drawings of this jackpot run, there were more than 14.2 million winning tickets at all prize levels, ranging from $2 up to $4 million (plus the jackpot). These include 34 second-tier prizes of $1 million or more, won in 15 different jurisdictions from coast to coast: Arizona, California, Florida, Kansas, Louisiana, Maryland, Michigan, Mississippi, Missouri, New York, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, South Dakota, Tennessee and Texas.

Note: Prize amounts in California will vary, as they are calculated on a pari-mutuel basis.

The jackpot for the next drawing on Friday, June 7, resets to its current starting value of $20 million ($9.4 million cash).

Mega Millions is the only lottery game that has produced six jackpot wins exceeding $1 billion each – all in different states. South Carolina was the first in 2018, followed by Michigan in 2021, Illinois in 2022, Maine in early 2023, Florida last August (the current game record jackpot of $1.602 billion), and New Jersey in March 2024.

Tickets are sold in 45 states, Washington, D.C., and the U.S. Virgin Islands. Tickets are $2 each; in most jurisdictions, players can add the Megaplier for an additional $1 to multiply their non-jackpot prizes. Half of the proceeds from the sale of each Mega Millions ticket remains in the state where the ticket was sold, where the money supports designated good causes and retailer commissions.

Drawings are conducted at 11 p.m. Eastern Time on Tuesdays and Fridays in Atlanta, Georgia. The overall odds of winning any Mega Millions prize are 1 in 24; the odds of winning the jackpot are 1 in 302,575,350.
