Maryland Mega Millions Winner Claims Share of $656 Million Jackpot
(BALTIMORE) — The second of three people who’ll share a record $656 million Mega Millions jackpot has claimed a piece of the prize.
However, as with another winner who stepped forward in Kansas last week, the Maryland winner has chosen to remain anonymous, which the state allows.
Nevertheless, Maryland Lottery officials will provide details about the winning ticket from the March 30 drawing at a news conference Tuesday at 8 a.m., according to a news release.
Monday, they said the winner purchased the winning ticket at a 7-Eleven store in Milford Mill, Md., outside Baltimore.
A Maryland McDonald’s employee, Mirlande Wilson, 37, has publicly claimed to be the winner from Maryland but last week told reporters she couldn’t find her ticket. Lottery officials voiced skepticism about her claim.
A third winning ticket was sold in Illinois, but the winner has not yet stepped forward.
