Second Mega Millions jackpot ticket sold in Maryland this year
Maryland is certainly having a mega streak of luck this year thanks to Mega Millions.
One Mega Millions ticket worth $189 million — with a cash option of $129.7 million — matched all six numbers including the Mega Ball.
The winning numbers were 7, 10, 30, 37, and 53, with Mega Ball number 1.
This is the second Maryland Mega Millions jackpot win this year, following the $26 million jackpot claimed by a Mt. Airy woman in late February.
"While the Maryland Lottery is no stranger to big Mega Millions jackpots, we're very excited to bring this win back to Maryland," said Maryland Lottery Director of Communications Carole Everett. "We're looking forward to meeting and congratulating the lucky ticket holders."
The jackpot ticket was purchased at Dash In, located at 7845 Quarterfield Road in Severn. For selling the jackpot ticket, the retailer will receive up to a $100,000 commission. The winners have 182 days to claim their prize and must come in person to the Lottery's Claims Center, located at 1800 Washington Blvd.
The multi-state Mega Millions game is played in 44 states and jurisdictions. Mega Millions drawings are held each Tuesday and Friday evening at 11:00 p.m., and the winning numbers are published minutes later at USA Mega, a Web site devoted to the two biggest United States lotteries, Mega Millions and Powerball.
