The lucky Illinois ticket holder who won the $1.3 billion Mega Millions jackpot almost a month ago remains a mystery, even from organizers.
Mega Millions allows winners to remain anonymous if they so choose — most often to afford negative attention or unwanted solicitations for money.
However, the winning ticket for this month's historic jackpot has not been claimed at all.
