The Week in Winners: Mega Millions Jackpot Reaches Historical $1.55 Billion as Six in Maryland Win $10,000

Players across the state won more than $31.6 million in Lottery prizes during week ending Aug. 6

No one hit the Mega Millions jackpot over the weekend, boosting the game’s top prize to $1.55 billion, but six players in Maryland won $10,000 each in the game in the past week, one each in Annapolis, Edgewater, Frederick, Leonardtown, Ocean City and Silver Spring. The $1.55 billion jackpot is the largest Mega Millions jackpot ever, and the third largest U.S. jackpot.

The biggest Lottery wins in the past week, however, were four prizes between $100,000 and $500,000 on scratch-off tickets purchased in Adelphi, Cumberland, Perry Hall and Pikesville.

Since April when the last Mega Millions jackpot was last won, 27 players in Maryland have hit for second- and third-tier prizes ranging from $10,000 to $4 million.

Mega Millions has nine prize tiers. All five balls with no Mega Ball pays $1 million, and a match on four of five regular balls plus the Mega Ball pays $10,000. Mega Millions drawings are at 11 p.m. every Tuesday and Friday. Mega Millions has a Megaplier ticket add-on that costs $1 and increases the amount of non-jackpot wins by a randomly selected multiplier.

In all, 45 Lottery tickets worth $10,000 or more were sold or redeemed in the seven days ending Aug. 6, and the Lottery paid more than $31.6 million in prizes during that span.

Winners of prizes larger than $25,000 must redeem their tickets at the Maryland Lottery Claims Center in Baltimore, which is open by appointment only. Prizes of up to $5,000 can be claimed at any of more than 400 Expanded Cashing Authority Program (XCAP) locations. All Maryland Lottery retailers are authorized to redeem tickets up to and including $600. More information is available on the How To Claim page of
