Mega Millions Winner Won't Share Jackpot with Co-Workers

Controversy surrounds one of the three winners of Friday's largest Mega Millions jackpot.

A Maryland woman, one of three winners in Friday's Mega Millions lottery, has no plans to share her earnings with co-workers who say they pooled their cash for tickets.

“We had a group plan, but I went and played by myself. The ‘winning’ ticket wasn’t on the group plan,” Mirlande Wilson, 37, told The New York Post.

To say the least, her co-workers are furious that they are not part of the $105 million payout (her share after-tax lump sum).

Wilson who worked at a Baltimore McDonald's planned to claim her multi-million dollar ticket Monday.

But since Wilson hasn't turned over the lottery ticket, there is speculation over whether or not she is even the true winner.

Maryland Lottery spokeswoman Carole Everett told USA Today, "I never expected, based on that story, that this is the actual winner. We really won't believe anybody till they walk in with a ticket and the ticket is valid — and they have identification."
