Ladies and gentlemen, we have a winner. Lottery officials say a ticket that was purchased in Baltimore County, Md., hit the $640 million Mega Millions jackpot, CNN is reporting.
Friday night’s (March 30) multi-state Mega Millions lottery numbers are 2-4-23-38-46 and 23 for the Mega Ball.
The record jackpot is at $640 million with officials estimating that ticket-buyers have spent nearly $1.5 billion on the jackpot. A California Lottery Commission spokesman says 29 tickets sold in that state matched five of the six winning numbers, though none matched all six.
The biggest winning Mega Millions jackpot prior to this was $390 million in 2007, which was shared by two winning ticket holders.
