Montgomery County Retailer Sells $1 Million Mega Millions Ticket

$20 million jackpot hit in New York in Tuesday drawing

Congratulations to our new Maryland millionaire! A lucky player bought a $1 million winning Mega Millions ticket in Silver Spring while a $20 million jackpot winning ticket was sold in New York in the Tuesday, April 18 drawing.

Check your tickets for a $1 million win if you visited 7-Eleven #11572 at 12405 Georgia Avenue in Silver Spring. Three other players in California, Iowa and Ohio also matched five of the winning numbers in the drawing to capture $1 million second-tier prizes.

The winning numbers to match were 7, 9, 15, 19 and 25; the Mega Ball number was 4 and the optional Megaplier number was 2. Maryland had a total of 11,721 winners in the Tuesday night drawing. Lottery officials encourage all winners to sign the back of their tickets immediately and put them in a safe location until they can claim their prize.

This is Maryland’s third $1 million winning Mega Millions ticket sold in 2023, and the state had four $1 million winners in Mega Millions in 2022.

The Montgomery County retailer will receive a $2,500 bonus from the Lottery for selling the lucky ticket. Because the jackpot was hit, the estimated annuity is reset to $20 million for the Friday, April 21 drawing, with an estimated cash option of $10.5 million.
