The winner went on, “I work very hard.” I’ve worked as a laborer all my life, and when I started earning a good salary, I begged my mother to retire so I could take care of her.

I have not yet informed her of this unexpected life-changing opportunity, but when the time comes, we will all be crying with joy.

The historic online win was the second-largest reward ever won in Illinois and the ninth-largest Mega Millions jackpot payout in the history of the game, according to the Illinois Lottery.
