Maryland Lottery Winners Claim Mega Millions Prize

Maryland Lottery officials say three public school employees are sharing the spoils of the record Mega Millions jackpot.

The winning Maryland ticket is one of three nationally that split the $656 million jackpot.

Maryland Lottery director Stephen Martino told a news conference in Baltimore the winners there were remaining anonymous. But he did provide a few details, including that they bought 60 tickets as a pool.

The two women and one man work in public education in the state. Officials did not disclose where.

One is a special education teacher, one is an elementary school teacher and the third is a school administrator.

Each will receive a lump sum payment of $35 million after taxes. Their plans include backpacking in Europe and paying for a daughter's college education.
