The Arizona Lottery has announced that three members of a family from Lake Havasu City have claimed the $108 million Mega Millions jackpot from an Oct. 22 drawing.

Lottery officials said Thursday that the the winners are a married couple and the woman's brother. Officials say they decided to remain anonymous, which is allowed under a 2019 Arizona law.

Lottery officials say the family members will get $75.2 million before taxes because they chose the lump-sum cash option.

Officials say the winners said plan to buy a motorhome and plan to leave their jobs when the time is right and travel around the U.S.
