Winner hasn't claimed $270M Illinois Mega Millions jackpot

Illinois Lottery officials say they've set up a phone number so the winner of last week's $270 million Mega Millions drawing can come forward.

That's the largest jackpot in Illinois Lottery history.

The Illinois Lottery said Sunday afternoon that the winner hasn't come forward. Lottery Director Michael Jones says whoever is holding the winning ticket should "please call 217-524-5158 immediately."

The winning numbers drawn Friday were 26, 32, 44, 45 and 58 - plus the Mega Ball of 11. It was the first jackpot win of 2015 and the first by an Illinois player since May 2012.

The winner has up to one year from the drawing date to claim the prize. The ticket was sold at a Bucky's Express in the Chicago suburb of Glendale Heights.
