Mega Millions Success for Florida and Maryland

Two lucky winners from Florida and Maryland are now $207 million richer, having split the Mega Millions jackpot of $414 million for the drawing on March 18th. The prize is the second largest Mega Millions prize in Maryland history. Both ticket holders matched all the winning numbers, which were 11, 19, 24, 33, 51 and Mega Ball number 7 to win the jackpot prize. 

Florida Jackpot Winner

Raymond Moyer and Robyn Collier, members of the Cobie and Seamus Trust in Florida, claimed the $207 million Mega Millions prize. The members of the trust chose the cash lump-sum of nearly $115.5 million. 

Robyn admitted that they hadn’t realized they had won the jackpot, until the morning after the drawing. “I paused the TV and ran to get the ticket to double-check the numbers," she commented. "And when I realized they all matched, I jumped off the couch in excitement and told Raymond we had won."

Raymond and Robyn plan on using their winnings for traveling and to watch Notre Dame football games, as well as investing a portion of the winnings. 

The winning Quick Pick ticket was purchased in Florida at a Publix grocery store, located on Merritt Island. The retailer will receive a vendor’s bonus of $100,000 for selling the winning ticket. 

Maryland Jackpot Winner 

The Marylander who won a share of the $414 million jackpot, chose to remain anonymous. They also opted for the cash option of $115.5 million, which is approximately $76.4 million after taxes. “You have to play to win,” the Maryland player exclaimed when speaking with lottery officials about their win. 

The Marylander bought the winning ticket at Lady’s Liquors, located at 6474 Crain Highway in La Plata. The retailer will receive commission of $100,000 for selling the ticket.
