Winning Mega Millions lottery ticket sold in Maryland

Mega MillionsMega Millions: Winning Mega Millions lottery ticket sold in Maryland

A single ticket has won the grand prize in the latest Mega Millions lotto drawing.

Lottery officials said the winning ticket from Tuesday night's drawing was sold in District Heights, Maryland. The ticket is worth $49 million.

In addition to the grand prize winner, four players around the country matched all five numbers but not the Mega Ball number. They will receive second prizes of $250,000 each.

The winning numbers from Tuesday night's drawing were: 12, 13, 29, 49 and 52. The Mega Ball number was 20.

Maryland State Lottery Director Buddy Roogow says the winning ticket was sold at a liquor store in District Heights. He says the ticket was a "quick pick" ticket, meaning the numbers were chosen by computer.

Another winner.  Wow we are in a slump right now.  We haven't seen a jackpot over $50 million in a very long time.

    It has been over two months now since I have played.  I usually wait for the jackpot to reach $50 million.  It almost made it this time.

          congrats to the winner.  

          My heart was also beating fast on the drawing night $110 of Super lotto PLus. I bought a ticket since May 20th to July 12th - 16 advance plays. But I was disappointed.

           

          This time I learn not to feed the jackpot. I wait it gets real big like $80 millions, then I play $5. Because I don't have money to play $5 from $40 millions up to the $100 millions.

           

          I play small now when luck strikes $1 play will do it.

              "Wow we are in a slump right now."

              I'm not a rocket scientist, but I bet the winner feels the slump is over (and $40 million is just fine).

                  Was so very pleased that the state of Lil Ole Maryland won a Mega-Lot! I had just commented that Maryland is one of those states that contributes yet rarely gets a winner! This time luck struck them kindly.

                  I look forward to the winners story!

                  Best to them and all the players of this game!
