As both jackpots climb, the lotto craze is creeping back into everyone’s mind.

In July, a $1.337 billion Mega Millions jackpot had Americans racing to buy tickets for the third-largest prize in Mega Millions history.

Last month, those winners came forward to claim their prize after weeks of America enviously waiting to know who won the life-changing money.

Under Illinois lottery rules, winners do not have to reveal their identity to the public.

The winners had a whole year to claim the prize but only 60 days — or until Sept. 27 — for their choice of getting the $780.5 million lump sum.
