What happens if no one claims the Mega Millions jackpot? 

If a jackpot prize goes unclaimed, each participating state in the Mega Millions game will get back all the money it contributed.

The states use their unclaimed lottery prizes for different purposes 

but unclaimed prize money typically remains in a state's lottery fund. 

In Illinois, roughly a quarter of every dollar played on the lottery goes to public school funding, the state lottery says. 

Last year, lottery purchases raised $731 million for education in the state. 

What happens if the winning lottery ticket is lost?

Mega Millions is not responsible for lost or stolen tickets  Winners are advised to sign the back of the tickets
