$250,000 Mega Millions Second-Tier Ticket Sold in Germantown

Wednesday, 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.

    Congratulations to the lucky winner.  If they played the Megaplier *(like I do), that $250k would have automatically been $1 million.  I’m hoping my numbers come up in the Multi Match tonight.

    Which one has better chance of winning Lottery Gas Station or 7-11??

      Jallohomar: Winners have been and will continue to be a matter of luck of the draw. We don’t know where the next winner will come from giving each Lottery retailer the same chances of producing a winner.
