Three Winners of the Largest Lottery Jackpot Ever

the Illinois Lottery posted on Twitter on Saturday morning. The ticket had been bought at Red Bud Motomart in Red Bud, Ill., the message said, about 40 miles from St. Louis.
Maryland’s winning ticket came from Baltimore County, according to the state’s lottery Web site. “This is truly remarkable and historic,” Stephen Martino, the state’s lottery director, said in a statement. “We can’t wait to greet the winner.”
In Kansas, officials said only that the ticket had come from the “northeast region” of the state.
What is $640 million divided by three? More math than jackpot winners in Illinois, Kansas and Maryland will ever have to do again.
