The Chicago suburb of Des Plaines has made Mega Millions history after a $1.34 billion ticket was sold at a Speedway gas station. The winner has yet to claim their prize, but winners in Illinois can remain anonymous and have 12 months to claim their prize. The lucky store that sold the ticket is also poised to get half a million. From this drawing, 26 players nationwide won a million each, and 375 others scored $10,000.
