MoCo Resident Claims $4 Million Mega Millions Prize

A Montgomery County resident is $4,000,000 richer after claiming a winning Mega Millions ticket that was purchased at a Baltimore convenience store. Full story below courtesy of the Maryland Lottery:

“The largest of the Mega Millionsprizes won in Maryland during the recent billion-dollar run – a $4 million second-tier hit – was claimed Aug. 11 by a player from Montgomery County. The player, for whom anonymity is a high priority, self-identified as a “Proud Marylander,” who is on the verge of retirement thanks to the big win.

The Lobby Shop at 1 North Charles Street in Baltimore, which sold the winning ticket, receives a bonus of $5,000. The usual Mega Millions second-tier retailer bonus is $2,500, but this ticket included the Megaplier option, which costs $1 extra, and increased a $1 million regular prize to $4 million, and doubled the retailer bonus.

During the recent Mega Millions run, which ended when a ticket sold in Florida matched all the drawn numbers on Aug. 7 for a $1.58 billion jackpot, Maryland saw a total of 29 prizes of $10,000 or more. Of those, the $4 million claimed Aug. 11 at Lottery headquarters in Baltimore was the largest, but there were two at the $1 million level, one for $40,000 and three at the $20,000 level.

As of Aug. 11, eight of these substantial prizes remained unclaimed, including the lone $40,000 win. The unclaimed winning tickets are:

  • $40,000 ticket sold July 22 at Giant #353, 8100 Loch Raven Boulevard in Towson
  • $10,000 ticket sold April 21 at 7-Eleven #11591, 5402 Randolph Road, Rockville
