Now that a winner has been declared in the state of Maryland, the "Lotto fever" and accompanying drama is over. The Baltimore Sun reports the winning ticket was sold at a 7-11.
I am most interested to see if the winning ticket was a machine "quick pick" or a group of specifically pre-determined numbers.
Last night I heard somewhere (either radio or tv) that when the jackpots are high, the winner is usually a "group" of office workers, neighbors, family members or otherwise folks who are connected to one another in some way and buy tickets as a collective. We should find out by Monday if that is indeed the case.
Where does all that money go that's the state's part of the sales? In New York it was supposed to be earmarked for education...
