Winning Mega Millions Ticket Sold in Maryland
The matching numbers were purchased from a 7-Eleven in Milford Mill.
A winning ticket in Friday's $640 million Mega Millions drawing was sold at a Maryland retailer, state lottery officials announced Saturday.
The matching numbers — 2-4-23-38-46 and Mega Ball 23 — were purchased from a 7-Eleven store at 8014 Liberty Rd. in Baltimore County's Milford Mill community, according to the Baltimore Sun.
By 7 a.m., reporters and television news crews had descended on the store. The owner declined to comment.
“This is truly remarkable and historic,” Maryland Lottery Director Stephen Martino said in a statement. “We can’t wait to greet the winner of this world-record setting jackpot.”
Two other winning tickets were reportedly sold Illinois and Kansas, likely forcing a three-way split of the jackpot.
The total tops the previous record of $390 million, split between two Mega Millions winners in 2007.
