There were three winning tickets each worth about $218 million-one from Maryland and one from Kansas. The winners in those states can remain anonymous.
But the New York Post is reporting it found the Maryland lotto winner-a McDonald's worker who is a single mother of seven. The paper also says that her co-workers are claiming the ticket was part of a lottery-pool-a claim the woman denies.
For some Americans who are not about to become overnight millionaires, the talk is about how winning is not quite all it's cracked up to be-scared that people will come out of the woodwork, wanting money from you.
One hundred million Americans spent one and a half billion dollars playing mega millions.
