One lucky person who purchased a Mega Millions lottery ticket from Nick’s Barbecue in Palos Heights has won an estimated $393 million.
Only one ticket in the country matched all six numbers in the Friday night drawing for the largest jackpot in Illinois history.
The numbers were 23, 33, 53, 56 and 58. The Mega Ball number was 06.
The restaurant, located at 12658 S. Harlem Ave., will receive a $500,000 bonus for selling the winning ticket, which was a Quick Pick.
“The Illinois Lottery urges the lucky winner to immediately sign the back of the ticket and keep it in a safe place until they visit one of the Lottery’s five Prize Centers in Chicago, Des Plaines, Rockford, Springfield or Fairview Heights,” the Illinois Lottery said in a news release. “Winners have one year from the original drawing date to claim a prize.”
The jackpot is the fifth largest in the history of the game, the Lottery said. It began April 28 and rolled over 30 times before the winning ticket was purchased.
