The odds were slim, about one in 175,000,000.
But for a lucky three, it is a game changer that will certainly put them on a new path in life.
They had the winning six digits for the record breaking $640,000,000 Mega Millions jackpot.
The winning tickets were sold in Maryland, Kansas and as close to us as Illinois.
And everyone wants to know, who are the winners?
At least one of them we may never know about.
"Maryland is one of the few states that does not require publicity of its lottery winners. So we had two, uh, Powerball jackpot winners last year. And, neither one of them, uh, decided to do any publicity; so we'll have to see what happens," said Stephen Martino, Director of the Maryland Lottery.
If no winning ticket had been sold, the jackpot would have climbed to more than $970,000,000!
It's now back down to an estimated $12,000,000. That drawing is Tuesday night.
