Four people in a lottery club in Michigan won a Mega Millions jackpot worth just over a billion dollars.
The four winners, in suburban Detroit, selected the lump sum payment after the January 22 drawing. After taxes they’ll share $557 million.
The names of the winners have not been released, but a spokesperson said they will pay it forward with charitable work in Southeast Michigan.
The $1.05 billion jackpot was the largest in Michigan Lottery history, and the third largest in the U.S.
