June 9 drawing produces $410 million jackpot winner in Arizona
Mega Millions players have millions of reasons to smile after helping to end the second-longest jackpot roll in the game’s history and winning more than 1.1 million prizes. One player in Arizona hit the $410 million jackpot in Tuesday night’s drawing and 13 others — including a lucky player in Maryland — won $1 million second-tier prizes.
The longest jackpot roll in Mega Millions history ended on July 8, 2016, when a $536 million jackpot was hit on the 35th drawing. This $410 million jackpot ended its roll on the 34th drawing.
Maryland’s lucky ticket was sold by Kettering Liquors located at 10682 Campus Way South in Upper Marlboro. The player matched the first five winning numbers in the June 9 drawing to capture the $1 million prize.
Those winning numbers were: 1, 5, 9, 10 and 23. The gold Mega Ball number was 22 and the optional Megaplier number was 2. Lottery officials encourage the winner to sign the back of the ticket immediately and put it in a safe location.
This is the first $1 million winning Mega Millions ticket sold in Maryland in 2020. Two $1 million winning tickets were sold in 2019, three in 2018 and one in 2017. Nationwide, this drawing saw $1 million winners in Florida (1), Maryland (1), Michigan (2), Minnesota (1), Pennsylvania (2), Washington (2), Mississippi (1), New York (2), and South Carolina (1).
The retailer will receive a $2,500 bonus for selling the ticket.
Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, and for the safety of Lottery players and employees, the Maryland Lottery’s Claims Center in Baltimore is temporarily closed. Reopening plans are being developed, and once they are finalized they will be announced on the home page of mdlottery.com, as well as the Lottery’s social media channels. The Lottery temporarily changed its claiming rules and extended the time to claim prizes that expire while offices are closed.
Currently, players can redeem all winning tickets by mail (details are available HERE). Players can redeem prizes up to and including $600 in person at any Lottery retailer and prizes up to and including $5,000 at any Expanded Cashing Authority Program retailer. Find a retailer HERE.
Typically, players must claim prizes within 182 days after the drawing. If you have a winning ticket that expires during Maryland’s current state of emergency, the Lottery will pay the prize if you submit the ticket to the Lottery office within 30 days after the coronavirus state of emergency ends. The state of emergency began on March 5, 2020.
Nationally, the June 9 Mega Millions drawing produced 1,130,902 winning tickets. Maryland saw 28,948 players win prizes ranging from the $1 million second-tier win down to $2. The 3,883 Marylanders who paid the extra $1 to add Megaplier to the $2 ticket for the drawing saw their prizes double.
The last Mega Millions jackpot win in Maryland came in March 2014, when Maryland and Florida players split a $414 million jackpot. That winning ticket was sold at Lady’s Liquors in La Plata.
