Maryland Lottery director Stephen Martino told a news conference in Baltimore the winners there were remaining anonymous. But he did provide a few details, including that they bought 60 tickets as a pool.



The two women and one man work in public education in the state. Officials did not disclose where. One is a special education teacher, one is an elementary school teacher and the third is a school administrator.

Each will receive a lump sum payment of $35 million after taxes. Their plans include backpacking in Europe and paying for a daughter’s college education.

Lottery officials say there are no other winning tickets. WBAL-TV called Ed Smith, the attorney representing Mirlande Wilson, a woman who claimed last week to have the winning ticket. When asked whether his client was involved in Monday’s claiming of the winning ticket, Smith said, “I have no idea.”
