John Johnson has played the same six lottery numbers in every Mega Millions drawing for the past three years.
For the past month, Virginia has been awarding new Powerball millionaires on an average rate of twice a week.
The drawing for the second-largest lottery jackpot of all time is Wednesday night, when it will either irrevocably alter the life of a lucky ticket holder or send the nation into a never-before-seen state of money mania — again.
Maryland lottery officials say a holder of a winning Mega Millions ticket has come forward to claim a share of the record-breaking $656 million prize. The winner has chosen to be anonymous.
Maryland Lottery officials confirmed on Monday that a person holding one of three winning tickets in the March 30 record-breaking Mega Millions drawing has come forward to claim the prize.
Maryland Lottery spokeswoman Carole Everett said longtime players set on a certain six numbers might have to tweak their game, but the hope is that the benefits of the changes outweigh the heartbreak.
"It's the same cost, the same price for a ticket, but there are much better odds of winning some prize overall," Ms. Everett said.
