Mega Millions Ticket Worth $189 Million Sold in Maryland

Share the News


For selling the winning Mega Millions lottery ticket, the owner of the Dash In on Quarterfield Road in Severn is about to get $100,000 richer, and that’s great for him. But it doesn’t compare — not by a long shot — to the payout awaiting his customer.

The sole winner of the Mega Millions jackpot is looking at $189 million, or $130 million in a lump sum, which would leave him or her with a tidy $86 million after taxes. (That sum actually sounds like a let-down in context.)

We don’t know who the winner is yet — and if he or she is smart, we never will. (If they’re lucky, a fake winner will offer her services as a decoy.) On the other hand, the owner of the Dash In has a hunch as to who it might be. Does anyone have that guy’s phone number?
