 PHOTO: The Illinois Mega Million Lottery winners, Merle and Patricia Butler, were announced today, April 18, 2012.

April 18, 2012

The last of the Mega Millions lottery winners are Merle and Patricia Butler, a married couple from Red Bud, Ill., and they came forward to claim their share in the biggest jackpot in lottery history today.

The lifelong residents of Red Bud discovered they had won the night of the drawing with a $3 quickpick ticket. They watched the numbers be read on the news and Merle Butler, 65, jotted down the numbers on a pad. He went to his wallet to get the tickets and immediately noticed he had the Mega Ball number.

“I thought, ‘I might win something,” Merle Butler said at the news conference. “The further I went, the more they matched. After I looked at it for a couple minutes, I turned to my wife and said, ‘We won.'”

“She kind of looked at me funny and I said, ‘No, we won.’ And then she started giggling,” Merle Butler said with a laugh. “She giggled for about four hours.”

The couple took the winning ticket to a bank lock box first thing in the morning and recalled a teller jokingly asking if they had come to lock up their winning ticket.

Merle Butler said he laughed and said lightly, “Yeah, I won and I have to put this thing away.” The teller laughed, not knowing he was telling the truth.

The couple were coy about how they would spend the money, saying they had a good team of financial advisers and lawyers that were helping them set things up.

The couple were required to have their identities revealed and appear at a news conference today. Illinois officials have said winners are required to come forward in order to prove to the public that the money is being rewarded.

The other two Mega Million lottery winners were from Kansas and Maryland and those states do not require the winner to go public.

Illinois lottery officials have been tight-lipped about the winner, saying only that he or she is a single winner, as opposed to part of a pool. The news conference will be held at 11 a.m. ET at the village hall in Red Bud, a town in southwestern Illinois. The winning ticket was sold at a gas station in the small farming town.

The newly-minted multimillionaires can decide between 26 yearly payments totaling $218.6 million or a one-time lump sum of $157.8 million.

The drawing for the world’s largest jackpot was on March 30. The winning numbers were 2-4-23-38-46 and the Mega Ball number was 23.

The Kansas winner was the first to claim a piece of the prize on April 6.

Kansas Lottery authorities presented a jumbo check for an estimated $218 million to a cardboard poster figure with a smiley-face head and the words “anonymous jackpot winner” printed on its chest.

Lottery officials would not reveal the gender, age or any other details about the winner, saying only that the winner played “quite often,” but not “a lot.” The winner chose to take the cash option of $157 million.

The Maryland prize was claimed on April 9 by three teachers, identified as the “Three Amigos.” Lottery officials released a photo of them holding an oversized check in front of their faces.

The winners were a man in his 40s, a woman in her 20s and a woman in her 50s and they had pooled their money to buy 60 tickets.

The Maryland trio chose the cash option of $158 million. After taxes, they will take home a little less than $35 million each.
