"Our customer service staff said there were 10 people at a time coming in to get tickets on Friday", Wolff said. She said prize recipients should create a trust and hire a team of lawyers, financial advisers and security.

The drawings are held on CW20 around 11 p.m.

"You'll have relatives you've never heard of popping up or people who one time angered you might be suing you", Weed said. The previous record was a US$1.586 billion jackpot for a Powerball drawing in 2016.

The winning numbers have been drawn for the record $1.6 billion Mega Millions lottery jackpot, but it isn't immediately clear if there's a victor.
