Winning tickets for the record-breaking $640 million Mega Millions jackpot were sold in Illinois, Kansas and Maryland, according to the Massachusetts State Lottery and The Associated Press.

The winning Illinois ticket — a quick pick sold at the Moto Mart in Red Bud, Illinois — is worth $213.3 million, according to the Illinois lottery.

The winning Maryland ticket was sold in Baltimore County, the Maryland Lottery said Saturday.

The winning numbers were 2, 4, 23, 38, 46 with a Mega Ball of 23.

California Lottery Commission spokesman Alex Traverso said 29 tickets sold in that state matched five of the six winning numbers. He said the payout will be about $125,000 to $130,000.

The multistate jackpot caused long lines at convenience stores, with many dreaming of creative ways to quit their jobs if they get the lucky numbers.

Sales skyrocketed at Manhattan Tobacco, a New York convenience store, cashier Alex Shanahe said. He said the store has proved to be lucky before, having sold winning tickets of $3 million and $5 million.

“The sales have tripled. Everybody wants to win the Mega Millions,” Shanahe said before the drawing.

A single winner could claim yearly payments or a one-time cash option of $462 million, Mega Millions spokeswoman Kelly Cripe said.
