BALTIMORE (AP) - Maryland Lottery officials say the second winner of a $414 million Mega Millions jackpot has come forward.

Officials announced Tuesday that the Maryland resident, who chose to remain anonymous, claimed the prize from the March drawing quietly late last week. A Florida couple came forward to claim their half of the jackpot last week too. Lottery officials say the winner said, “You have to play your lucky numbers.”

Lottery officials say the Maryland winner chose the cash option and will receive $76.4 million after taxes. The state will receive more than $10.1 million in tax revenue and Lady’s Liquors in La Plata, the store where the winning ticket was sold, will receive a $100,000 agent bonus.
