WASHINGTON - A Mt. Airy grandmother of two, who wishes to remain anonymous, has claimed the $26 million Mega Millions jackpot.
"I am still in denial," the woman says in Maryland Lottery news release. "I even drove by the store the next day to see if it was real. One look at the parking lot with all the news vans and I knew it was true."
The 48-year-old retiree says she plans to buy a beach house.
To win the jackpot, she matched all five numbers, plus the Mega Ball. She will take home $12.6 million after taxes.
