The third highest jackpot was won in the USA. The winner will get 31 billion crowns Business

The winning bet was made by someone in the state of Illinois, the AP agency wrote on Saturday.

The jackpot has grown to such a height because no one has won the first prize since April 15th. The jackpot didn’t hit until Friday night. The lucky numbers were 13-36-45-57-67 with an additional number of 14. The chance of hitting the right combination is one in 302.5 million.

The winner would receive $1.28 billion if they agreed to split the prize into 29 annual installments. If the winner chooses a one-time payment, he will take home only $742 million (almost CZK 18 billion).

The highest prize was awarded in 2016 by the competing Powerball lottery. That’s when the $1.59 billion jackpot was split between three winners.
