$250,000 Mega Millions Second-Tier Ticket Sold in GermantownWednesday, August 24th, 2011
For someone in the Germantown area of Montgomery County, today is going to be pretty special. Assuming, that is, that the person – a Mega Millions player – checks the ticket he or she purchased for last night’s drawing. Lottery officials announced this morning that a $250,000 second-tier Mega Millions ticket was purchased from the 7-11 convenience store at 19412 Walter Johnson Road in that town.
To win the second-tier prize, the player matched every number except the Mega Ball. Since no winning jackpot ticket was sold, Friday night’s drawing will be worth $14 million, with a cash option of $10 million. Last night’s winning numbers were 11, 21, 44, 48, 49 and Mega Ball 23.
This is the 15th second-tier Mega Millions winner in Maryland this year and the second big win at a 7-11 store this week. On Saturday, a 7-11 in Deale sold a $200,000 Powerball winner – there must be something in the Slurpees. Last night’s winner has 182 days from the drawing date to claim the prize.
