The lucky numbers of the draw, which has been running for about 4 months and won by a winner from New Jersey, were 7, 11, 22, 29, 38 and 4.

13 ticket holders from different parts of the country won at least 1 million dollars by matching the numbers of the first 5 balls drawn. One person in New York also won $2 million.

The winner of the jackpot will receive the entire $ 1.13 billion if he accepts the annual payment of the prize, and 537.5 million dollars if he prefers a lump sum payment.
