Mega Millions officials confirmed today that three winners will split Friday's record $640 Million jackpot.

Those with "a dollar and a dream" rushed to purchase tickets in 42 states.  Lottery officials say that winning tickets were sold in Illinois, Kansas and Maryland.

All hope is not lost in New York.  There were seventeen second-place winners in the Empire State, including one in the Rochester area.

The state lottery says a winning ticket was sold at Wegmans on Calkins Road in Henrietta.  The winner has not yet been announced, but the lucky person will soon be $250,000 richer.
