The employees behind the counter at the 7-Eleven at 9707 Beaver Dam Road were surprised Saturday afternoon when they discovered they had sold one of the four $250,000 winning Mega Millions tickets that hit in Maryland
The winning ticket shouldn't come as a surprise, however, considering that just Friday the convenience store sold over $12,000 in tickets, said Elham Ali, a clerk of eight years at that 7-Eleven location. (See photo.)
Another employee, Ahmed Nassar, said he remembered selling 10 different people at least $100 worth of tickets.
The lucky local 7-Eleven is located on the border between Timonium and Cockeysville.
The chances of winning the $250,000 cash prize are 1 and 3,904,701, according to the Mega Millions website.
Three other winning tickets worth $250,000 were sold in Maryland—at a 7-Eleven on Harford Road in the city, at a Redner's Warehouse Market in Bel Air and in Boonsboro, according to lottery spokeswoman Erica Palmisano.
Patch will have more details as they become available.
