Two tickets bore the winning numbers in Maryland's $15 million Lotto game -- one bought in Montgomery County, the other in Baltimore County -- a State Lottery spokesman announced early today.
Only once since the Lotto game began in 1973 was the jackpot larger. Once it was as big.
The prospect fueled ticket sales of close to $2 million in the last 2 1/2 hours before last night's drawing, said spokesman Carroll H. Hynson Jr.
The prize for each ticket is $375,000 a year for 20 years, before taxes.
