Did Anyone Win Mega Millions?

Maryland lottery officials say they have a player who matched all the Mega Millions winning numbers. Winning tickets also sold in Kansas and Illinois.

UPDATED March 31 at 9:10 a.m.

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.

If you got the mega you get $2 =]]

I bought $100 in tickets.. And was fortunate to have hit 4 numbers on one ticket. From my understanding I'll get $150 out of it. Still don't know what I would have done winning the big one. I probably would have had a heart attack. Congrats to the winners

2 of the 5 matching numbers, plus the Mega Ball wins 10 bucks. Congrats!
Jaderz March 31, 2012 at 05:12 PM
Take a look at the back of the ticket they scanned. It will tell you the prize amounts and the odds for each. ONE number only wins a prize if you also have the Mega Ball...and that prize is only $3.
Jaderz March 31, 2012 at 05:16 PM
2 of the 5 numbers PLUS the Mega ball gets 10 bucks. (All info is on the back of the long ticket they scanned. It's always a good idea to keep that piece of paper, until after the numbers are drawn... OR you could have it scanned next time to play the same numbers again.)

Congrats to the winner!!!!

A couple words of advise for the big winners - hire both an account and a lawyer whom you trust! Don't go overboard in your spending, and remember blood is thicker than water, help your family first!

Many are saying that God is involved with who won. I doubt that. I recall reading in the bible rhat we should not gamble. (not that i obey every single word in the bible), butI don't think He has any part in this.

My husband was so disappointed this morning he didn't get one number. I am just thankful we are healthy and maddly in love.

Wrong game Jen. This is the Mega Millions page. Although if you did play the Mega Millions by accident instead of the Power Ball maybe you still have a chance to win!?!
