CHICAGO (AP) -- The spokesman for the Illinois lottery says three tickets have split the record $640 million Mega Millions jackpot.
Mike Lang says the winning tickets were in Illinois, Kansas and Maryland.
He says the Illinois winning ticket was sold in the small town of Red Bud, near St. Louis. The Maryland lottery announced earlier its winner was from Baltimore County. No details have been released on the winning ticket in Kansas.
Lang says each winning ticket was expected to be worth more than $213 million before taxes.
