Winning lottery tickets produce three new Maryland millionaires



BALTIMORE, MD—Maryland has three new millionaires after a week when two people bought second-tier winning Mega Millions tickets in Upper Marlboro and White Hall, and a third person in Waldorf bought a FAST PLAY progressive jackpot ticket worth $1,540,419.

As of January 9, only one of the three life-changing prizes had been claimed. The $1 million Mega Millions win in White Hall came in the Jan. 3 drawing and the Upper Marlboro second-tier win occurred in the January 6 drawing. There were no Mega Millions winners at the jackpot level so the top prize rolled to an eye-popping $1.1 billion (estimated annuity value) for the Jan. 10 drawing. If the jackpot is hit at that amount, it would be the third-largest in Mega Millions in history and fifth-largest in U.S. lottery history. The estimated cash option is $568.7 million.

In all, the seven days ending January 8 produced 54 winning tickets worth $10,000 or more that were redeemed or sold across Maryland, and the Lottery paid nearly $38.1 million in prizes during that span.

Here is the weekly roundup of big winners:
