In the drawing of July 29, no one has claimed the $1.34 billion Mega Millions jackpot yet.

This is the second highest jackpot amount in the game's 20-year history.

According to the information given on the Mega Millions website, the rules for claiming the prize differ from state to state.

The time to claim the prize from the draw date ranges from 90 days to 1 year.

Winners winning over $250,000 can hide their identity. And we may never even know about the winner.

If no one claims the jackpot prize, then the amount of the state participating in Mega Millions will be returned to them.

In most of the cases, this prize money remains deposited in the State Lottery Fund.

According to the Illinois lottery, a quarter of the $1 spent on the lottery goes to public school funds.

A man thought he won $600 in the lottery but he won $1 million
