A lucky winner is holding a $1 million Mega Millions lottery ticket bought in Owings Mills, lottery officials said Saturday.
The ticket, drawn Friday night, was bought at the Giant grocery store at 9730 Groffs Mill Drive.
The winner was only publicly identified as an Owings Mills resident, U.S. Army veteran of the Korean War and father of four. He told lottery officials he plans to share his winnings with his family and nonprofits, including the Diggs-Johnson Museum in Granite, a historic African-American church that has recently been restored.
The Giant grocery store where the ticket was purchased will receive a $2,500 bonus from the state lottery.
The 7 Eleven store at 8014 Liberty Road sold one of the winning Mega Millions lottery tickets with a jackpot of $640 million dollars.
