CHICAGO — Two people who wish to remain anonymous have claimed a $1.337 billion Mega Millions jackpot after a single ticket to the late July draw was sold in a Chicago suburb, lottery officials said Wednesday.

The Illinois Lottery said the prize was claimed by two individuals who agreed to split the prize if they won.

The winners wished to remain anonymous and the Illinois Lottery said it could not share any information about the winners other than to say they should absolutely be “over the moon” with their Mega Millions winnings.

Lottery officials said the winners chose to take the $780.5 million lump sum. The lottery said the two people have been working with professional legal and financial advisors in recent weeks to support the claims process.

“These winners are now in the enviable position of deciding what to do with their newfound fortunes,” said Harold Mays, executive director of the Illinois Lottery.

According to megamillions.com, one jackpot-winning ticket was purchased at a Speedway gas station and convenience store in Des Plaines in late July.

The winning numbers were: 13-36-45-57-67, Mega Ball: 14.

The jackpot was the the third largest lottery prize in the country. It got so big because no one had matched the game’s six selected numbers since April 15. That’s 29 consecutive draws without a jackpot winner.
