According to a Ravens official via OCNN Report , quarterback Joe Flacco bought a Mega Millions lottery ticket at a local 7-11 in Maryland.
“It’s a lot of money, man,” Flacco said. “Since I’ve been 18 years old, I’ve always played the lottery when it gets up to a couple $100 million. It’s just for fun.”

Rob Owen, 22, of Finksburg, Md., stopped in to buy a few mega millions tickets, but stood at the wrong cash register. As he went to another line, he was passed by a familiar face.
“The guy behind me beat me to the end of the line,” Owen said. “When I got there, I realized it was Joe. I was tongue tied.”
Flacco politely let Owen back in front of him.
“I couldn’t have him blaming me when I won and he lost and I didn’t let him back where he was supposed to be,” Flacco said.
