Winning $414,000,000 Mega Millions Ticket Sold In Maryland

Wednesday, March 19th, 2014

$1 million second-tier winner sold in Crownsville

Maryland is once again the home of a Mega Millions jackpot after selling one of the winning tickets for last night’s drawing. The winning ticket, which was sold at Lady’s Liquors located at 6474 Crain Highway in La Plata, matched all six numbers including the Mega Ball. The $414 million jackpot has a cash option of $230.9 million. Since there were two winning tickets sold nationwide, after taxes the Maryland winner will take home approximately $76.4 million if choosing the cash option. For selling the winning ticket, Maryland will receive more than $10.1 million in tax revenue. The winning numbers were 11, 19, 24, 33, 51, and Mega Ball 07.

In addition to the big winner, there was a $1 million second-tier winning ticket sold at Waterbury Liquors located at 1021 Generals Highway in Crownsville. That winner matched the first five winning numbers, missing only the Mega Ball.

This is the first Mega Millions jackpot win in Maryland this year, following two Maryland jackpot wins in 2013 when an Anne Arundel County man won $189 million in October and a Mt. Airy couple won $26 million in February. So far this year there have been four $1 million Mega Millions second-tier tickets sold in Maryland.

“Maryland was fortunate to have two jackpot winners last year. We are pleased to welcome the Mega Millions jackpot back to the state,” said Maryland Lottery Director Stephen Martino. “A heartfelt congratulations to the Maryland Mega Millions winner.”

The Lottery encourages the ticket holder to sign the back of the ticket and keep it in a safe place until he or she claims the prize. Winners have 182 days from the date of the drawing to claim their winnings and must do so in person at the Baltimore Claims Center at Lottery Headquarters located at 1800 Washington Boulevard.

The ticket holder isn’t the only one who wins; the retailer who sold the winning jackpot ticket will receive a $100,000 commission. The retailer that sold the second-tier winner will receive $1,000.

    I don’t know if my blessing is coming through the lottery. But I know it’s coming and I plan on helping others as much as I can. Me and my family could really use some help also but I’ve always told my daughter who is turning 14 that when daddy comes into good money I want to go kind of undercover everyday like a full time job and dress down ya know and find good people who deserve it! Hide the fact I have plenty money so I could find truly good hearted people and help them out as much as possible
    by someone homeless a home or maybe give them a business
    help as many people as I can as many ways as I can! I
    believe that’s why I was put on this earth. so many people can be helped out with the amount of money you can win from Powerball or Megamillions and no one needs that kind of money. it’s just greedy!
