According to NJ anyway. No word yet on where it was sold.

      Maryland Lottery Director Buddy Roogow said a winning ticket was sold at Walther Liquors in Nottingham at 5:10 p.m. Friday, and that the winner had not come forward

        is that a joke?

         

        am sure a winner could even come forward YET

        let lone the Dicector give a publc statement in the middle of of the nite while there closed 

        when lotto hq has been closed before draw and sure atfer the draw!

        like a winner had not come forward makes any sense

        if there not even open the sec  atfer the draw and sure closed!

         

         

        faker , make stuff up why dont you, o wait you just been doing that

          I'll believe it when the official MM website says there was a winner.

            It's true.  The AP just wrote their usual story.  Just ignore the part about not coming forward yet.

                    I wonder if any of the winners are going to be disappointed they 'only' won 82 million instead of 330 million?  :-)

                      This is the third split MM jackpot since the game went 5/56 + 1/46. Powerball has had only one split jackpot since it went 5/55 + 1/42.

                        Not that I track numbers--I'm pretty new to most of this and have only started thinking "outside the box" since finding LP--but a recent post from RJOh got me thinking about "number groupings" and their distribution.

                        There are many stat and computer  people on this site who could either confirm (or refute) my thoughts but RJ pointed out how infrequent a distribution of winning JP numbers when clustered over 30 (like last Tuesday's MM nonwinning draws were) and therefore, presumably any cluster in which all numbers were under 30 would also be infrequent.

                        Read somewhere that most "chosen" tickets (if unrelated to family B'day or B'year numbers), will have a fairly even distribution of numbers--many people (and many computers, I think) find a pleasing symmetry of numbers distributed along the line of numbers available to them so when I saw '8' (1st group of 10 numbers available--from 1-10), '18' (2nd group of 10 numbers available from 11-20), '22' (numbers from the 3rd group of 10 numbers available from 21-30) and then two nonsequential numbers over 30--I was thinking that maybe there would be a greater probability of a winning tkt--of which  there was--X4.  Was interested to read in article Todd posted that the MD winning tkt was apparently a Quick Pik .

                        Thanks LP for expanding my numbers universe--now if it would only pay off (sigh)

                            I am sure at least 2 of those tickets were picked numbers.  I don't see 4 tickets being sold if they were all easy picks.  There was only 137,000,000 tickets sold which I thought was kinda low.  But there will be no $500+ million jackpots if they keep the matrix this way.  We just buy too many tickets.
