The Mega Millions winner in Maryland has finally come forward. But as most of our readers will ask, “is it the lying multiple wig wearing McDonalds worker?
The Maryland winner has chosen to remain anonymous.
There were three winning tickets for the historic $656 million winning ticket. The winning tickets were sold in Maryland, Illinois and Kansas.
The ticket is believed to have been purchased at a 7-Eleven in Baltimore County.
Officials will share some details at a news conference Tuesday morning (this morning).
Maryland does not require lottery winners to be identified.
The burning question emerging from the announcement is whether the big winner is McDonald’s worker Mirlande Wilson, who grabbed headlines as well as outrage when she publicly announced that she had the winning ticket – and, despite entering the drawing with co-workers, was not sharing it.
Last week, Mirlande Wilson (ABOVE) , claimed to have won the ticket. She earlier told people that she hid the ticket at the McDonald’s where she works and also that she misplaced it.
Wilson has at turns evaded the media and spoken publicly about the ticket. The 37-year-old also said she just wants to be left alone. No word yet if she is the winner or gave it to one of her peeps.
The jackpot was the biggest in Mega Millions history, and the 3 winners – 1 each in Maryland, Illinois and Kansas – will each receive more than $218million before taxes.
Kansas’ winner claimed a share of the jackpot Friday, but also decided to remain anonymous.
