Hemant Shah marveled yesterday at how close he came to possibly being the latest Mega Millions lottery winner. Instead, the owner of Mace Liquors in Essex said he learned yesterday morning that one of his customers snatched up the lucky single-winning ticket - and its $26 million bounty - exactly four minutes before Shah. "I'm ecstatic," said Shah, who has owned the store for five years. "I knew deep down that we'd sell one." Shah, 59, said lottery officials called him about 9:30 a.m. to tell him that the winning ticket had been bought at his store, but he doesn't know which customers has it. The winning numbers from Friday night's drawing were: 10, 19, 37, 40 and 48. The Mega Ball number was 1. If the winner opts for a lump-sum payment, he or she could net about $15.2 million, Maryland Lottery Director Buddy Roogow said yesterday afternoon.

While handicappers of all shapes and sizes were making their way to and from the betting windows, particular attention was being paid to Belmont Park, where Big Brown attempted to become the first horse to win the Triple Crown since 1978.

"There was a little issue with the software in the system," said Maryland Lottery spokeswoman Carole Everett. "People could purchase tickets. The only issue -- and I can understand this was a little irritation with players -- was they couldn't cash on the spot. " The problem affected all of the computerized lottery games, not just Powerball.
