MERRIT ISLAND , Fla., April 30 (UPI) -- Raymond Moyer and Robyn Collier, both 35, collected a check for $207 million after being named the winners, along with someone else from Maryland, of the latest Mega Millions jackpot.

The Florida Lottery announced that the winners collected their prize on Tuesday. A one-time lump sum payment of almost $115.5 million was made to the Cobie and Seamus Trust of which Moyer and Collier are both members. Their jackpot was the third largest in the game's history.

Moyer and Collier purchased their winning Quick Pick ticket for the March 18 drawing at a Publix groceries store on Merritt Island. The store received $100,000 as a bonus commission for selling the winning ticket.

Collier said the duo didn't realize they had won until the morning after the drawing.

"I paused the TV and ran to get the ticket to double-check the numbers," Collier said. "And when I realized they all matched, I jumped off the couch in excitement and told Raymond we had won."

"It was definitely a shock, but it is an incredible blessing that will allow us to do many things we would not have had the opportunity to do before," Moyer added.

A second winner that purchased his or her ticket in Maryland has yet to come forward to claim the other half of the prize.
