Mega Millions Jackpot Roll Ends With $1.35 Billion Winner in Maine

Seven players in Maryland win third-tier prizes of at least $10,000

A historic Mega Millions jackpot roll came to an end on Friday night as the Jan. 13 drawing produced a $1.35 billion jackpot winner in the state of Maine. It is the second-largest jackpot in Mega Millions history and fourth-largest overall in U.S. lottery history.

In Maryland, Friday’s Mega Millions drawing produced seven third-tier winning tickets. Six of those tickets are worth $10,000 each, and one delivered a $20,000 prize because the winner added the Megaplier option to the ticket. The winning numbers in the drawing were 30, 43, 45, 46, 61; and the Mega Ball was 14. The Megaplier was 2X.

There are nine prize tiers in Mega Millions, ranging from $2 up to the jackpot. There were 159,218 winning tickets sold in Maryland for Friday’s drawing. Maryland Lottery winners have 182 days from the drawing date to claim their prizes.
