MOUNT AIRY, Md. (WJZ)– The Maryland family who won the $26 million Mega Millions ticket has come forward to claim their cash prize. But they are choosing to remain anonymous.
At around 10 p.m. Tuesday, before going to bed, a Mt. Airy man jokingly told his fiancée they were going to wake up as millionaires. One hour later, while they were sound asleep, that premonition became a reality.
When the woman woke up the next morning, she went online to check her tickets and realized they were $26 million richer. Before calling her fiancé, she had her daughter check the numbers on the ticket, too.
