Three lucky ticket holders in Maryland, Illinois and Kansas will share a $640 million prize, the largest lottery jackpot in U.S. history.
The Maryland lottery reports a winning ticket for Friday night’s drawing has been sold in Baltimore County.
The winning ticket was purchased at a 7-11 store in Milford. The identity of the winner is still unknown. In Maryland, lottery winners have the option to remain anonymous.
“This is truly remarkable and historic,” said Maryland Lottery Director Stephen Martino. “We can’t wait to greet the winner of this world-record setting jackpot.”
The location of the stores that sold the winning numbers in Kansas and Illinois has not been released.
“There are definitely a few winners from other states as well,” says a state spokeswoman.
For the record, the lucky numbers were 2-4-23-38-46, with the Mega Ball of 23.
