WASHINGTON - 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.
