Mega Millions tickets worth $4M, $1M sold in Maryland as grand prize jackpot grows

Mega Millions tickets worth $4 million and $1 million were sold in Maryland for Tuesday night's drawing, lottery officials say.

Both lucky tickets matched all five white balls to win the game's second-tier prize of $1 million. One of the tickets also included the optional Megaplier which multiplied the winnings by four for a total of $4 million.

Lottery officials say the $4 million winning ticket was sold at the Lobby Shop at 1 North Charles Street in Baltimore. The lucky $1 million ticket was sold at National Pike Fuel at 5931 Baltimore National Pike in Catonsville. There were also two third-tier winning tickets worth $10,000 each sold in Gaithersburg.

Other $1 million tickets were sold in Florida, New York, Ohio and Rhode Island, and California.

With no grand prize winner, the jackpot for Friday's drawing is expected to reach an estimated $720 million.

Meanwhile, Wednesday's Powerball drawing has topped $1 billion. No grand prize tickets were sold early this week, but a lucky Powerball Double Play ticket worth $500,000 was sold at a Maryland liquor store ahead of Monday's drawing.
