The jackpot was the third-largest in U.S. history.

About two months later, the winners of the July 29th

Mega Millions draw and their $1.34 billion jackpot were announced.

The Illinois Lottery said two people recently

submitted winning tickets sold in Des Plaines, Illinois.

The two agreed to split the prize before the draw,

keeping their promise, according to the lottery.

The couple chose to remain anonymous, 

according to the Illinois Lottery.

The lottery allows anyone who wins $250,000 or more to remain anonymous.
