NOTTINGHAM, MD—The sun is shining on another Maryland millionaire in the Mega Millions game.
If you bought a ticket at the Giant supermarket in Nottingham for the Tuesday, April 6 Mega Millions drawing, you may be the state’s newest millionaire. Maryland had the only player in the country to match five of the winning numbers in the drawing to capture a $1 million second-tier prize. It is the second consecutive Mega Millions drawing to produce a $1 million winner in Maryland.
No one won the Mega Millions jackpot, which rolls to $201 million for the Friday, April 9 drawing, with a cash option of $135.9 million. The winning Mega Millions numbers from April 6 were 1, 19, 20, 32 and 42. The gold Mega Ball number was 17 and the optional Megaplier number was 3X. The Giant store, located at 8905 Belair Road in the Perry Hall Square shopping center, will receive a $2,500 bonus for selling the ticket.
Nationally, 587,744 Mega Millions tickets in the April 6 drawing were winners. Maryland saw 15,770 players win prizes ranging from the $1 million second-tier win and two $10,000 prizes down to $2. The 2,457 Marylanders who paid the extra $1 to add Megaplier to the $2 ticket for the drawing saw their prizes triple.
Lottery officials encourage the big winner to sign the back of the ticket immediately and put it in a safe location. Winners typically get 182 days from the date of the drawing to claim prizes. However, the Maryland Lottery has temporarily extended claiming deadlines due to Maryland’s COVID-19 state of emergency.
The big winner can claim the prize by mail or in person by appointment at Maryland Lottery headquarters, 1800 Washington Blvd., Baltimore. Winners of smaller prizes can claim them by mail, at Lottery retailers, at casinos or by appointment at Lottery headquarters.
