Final Mega-Millions Winner to Be Announced Tomorrow


With Kansas and Maryland having already named their individual recipients for the $600 million plus Mega Millions jackpot, the final of the three winners - from Illinois - is set to come forward soon, according to USA Today:

The winner, from Red Bud, a city of 4,000 in southern Illinois, near St. Louis, will be presented with a check for $218.66 million. That's before taxes -- 25% federal, 5% state.

The winner will be unmasked at 10 a.m. CT (11 a.m. ET) at the Red Bud Village Hall. The winning ticket was bought at the nearby Motomart.[...]

The Maryland winners turned up to collect their check but chose to be identified only as "The Three Amigos." The Kansas winner is keeping his identity entirely secret.

Unlike Maryland and Kansas, Illinois does not allow its recipients to collect their checks anonymously. As such, the lucky winner of the Mega Millions jackpot will soon have their face and name appearing in press coverage.
