Silver Spring Man Wins Second-Tier Mega Millions Prize
While stopping for gas on his way home from work, a 53-year-old Montgomery County man decided to purchase a Mega Millions ticket for the November 20th drawing. Little did he know, he would soon be $250,000 richer.
The lucky winner checked his ticket on the Lottery’s website at mdlottery.com. He saw that he matched all five numbers except for the Mega Ball. He immediately told his wife, who was just as excited and happy as he.
The winner kept his winning ticket in his wallet in his pocket until he came to Lottery Headquarters to claim the prize. He’s keeping news of the win quiet. “My wife is the only person I have told,” he said.
The father-of-two said he doesn’t have any immediate plans for his winnings. “I’m very excited, but everything is pretty much the same,” he said. The winning ticket was purchased at the East Rockville Sunoco on Aspen Hill Rd. in Rockville.
