If you came up empty handed in the lottery, you are far from alone. One person in Maryland, however, may be having a very good morning according to lottery officials.
The winning numbers in last night's record-breaking $640 million jackpot were 2-4-23-38-46 plus a Mega Ball of 23. According to the Maryland lottery website, at least one person matched all six numbers to claim the half-billion dollar plus prize.
“This is truly remarkable and historic,” said Maryland Lottery Director Stephen Martino in a relased statement. “We can’t wait to greet the winner of this world-record setting jackpot.”
Winning tickets were also sold in Kansas and Illinois according to a statement on the Georgia lottery website. Though no Georgians took home the big prize, six players won $250,000 and 48 won $10,000.
