This is also a win for the retailers that sold those winning tickets, as they will receive a bonus of 1% of the prize amount.

Nearly 114,000 other prizes, ranging from $4 to $50,000, were won in Monday’s Powerball drawing.

Winners have one year from the date of the winning draw in which to claim their prize. The Illinois Lottery encourages all lucky winners to write their name on the back of their ticket and keep it in a safe place until they’re ready to claim their prize.

Powerball tickets are $2 each, and players have the option to add the Powerplay for an additional $1 for the chance to multiply non-jackpot prizes. Powerball drawings are held every Monday, Wednesday and Saturday at 9:59 p.m. (CT).
