BALTIMORE, MD—Check your tickets! A lucky individual bought a winning $1 million Mega Millions ticket in Maryland in the Tuesday, April 18, 2023 drawing.
The winning ticket was sold at the 7-Eleven store located at 12405 Georgia Avenue in Silver Spring. Three other players in California, Iowa, and Ohio also matched five of the winning numbers in the drawing to capture $1 million second-tier prizes.
The winning numbers to match were 7, 9, 15, 19 and 25; the Mega Ball number was 4 and the optional Megaplier number was 2. Maryland had a total of 11,721 winners in the Tuesday night drawing. Maryland Lottery officials encourage all winners to sign the back of their tickets immediately and put them in a safe location until they can claim their prize.
This is Maryland’s third $1 million winning Mega Millions ticket sold in 2023, and the state had four $1 million winners in Mega Millions in 2022.
The jackpot was hit in this drawing, so the estimated annuity will reset to $20 million for the Friday, April 21 drawing, with an estimated cash option of $10.5 million.
Winners get 182 days from the date of the drawing to claim prizes.
