London, Jan 13 (ANI): A lottery, thought to be the second-largest jackpot in history, is to be shared between a woman from Idaho and a couple from Washington.

Lottery officials said Holly Lahti will be sharing the 380 million dollar jackpot with Jim and Carolyn McCullar, and both parties will get 190 million dollars each, the Telegraph reported.

The McCullars had appeared at a news conference to announce they’d won half of the jackpot, and the Idaho Lottery officials had announced only where the other winning ticket had been sold.

They revealed the name of the other winner at a later date, but did not release her age or hometown, saying Lahti had asked them to respect her privacy. (ANI)
