Two $250,000 Second-Tier Wins Last Night

Mega MillionsTwo Maryland Mega Millions tickets correctly matched enough of Tuesday night’s winning numbers to garner the game’s second-tier prize of $250,000.  Ticket holders in Laurel and Glen Burnie are checking their numbers carefully this morning, hoping to make a trip to Lottery Headquarters later today.

Last night’s winners missed the $24 million jackpot by just one number.  The game’s jackpot climbed to $33 million for the next drawing this Friday night.  “People typically think of Mega Millions in terms of the jackpot,” said Lottery Communications Director Carole Everett, “but we’ve had a significant number of local players win the $250,000 prize.”  Lottery records show that there have been 17 second-tier Mega Millions wins in Maryland so far this year.  There have also been 90 $10,000 third-tier wins.

The Lottery retailers that sold the Mega Millions winners are the 7-11 convenience store at 14001 Baltimore Ave. in Laurel and the Greentree Exxon station at 8001 Crain Hwy. in Glen Burnie.
