By now, you’ve probably heard that the Mega-Millions Jackpot went to two ticket owners, one in California and one in Georgia. (Darn it, you still have to keep your day job.)
Nationwide, twenty tickets were sold that matched five of six numbers — 8, 14, 17, 20, 39 and a Mega number of 7 — but just missing the Mega, and are worth $1 million each. One of those was purchased in Maryland. The ticket was sold at High’s, located at 158 Old Mill Bottom Road in Annapolis, according to officials at the Maryland Lottery.
So, it’s not the jackpot, with a lump-sum cash payout of $341.2 million and the second-largest ever for the Mega Millions game, but let’s not get greedy. Two Mega Millions jackpot wins took place in Maryland this year. An Anne Arundel County man stepped forward in October to claim a $189 million jackpot. In February, a Mt. Airy couple won $26 million playing Mega Millions. In 2013, Maryland has had 16 second-tier winners, including two with Megaplier for $1 million.
