First Powerball Jackpot Win for State Since Game Began

Along with the torrential downpours, it’s raining cash here in Maryland. Last night, for the first time ever, a winning Powerball jackpot ticket was sold in Maryland. The lucky ticket for last night’s drawing was purchased in Harford County at Wine World, located at 406-A Constant Friendship Blvd. in Abingdon.  Wine World will receive a $25,000 commission for selling the ticket.  Last night’s winning numbers were 3, 5, 18, 27, 54 and Power Ball 13.

We are so excited to have a top-tier winner here in Maryland.  It will definitely add a bright spot to an otherwise rainy week,” said Lottery Communications Director Carole Everett.  “We can’t wait to meet Maryland’s newest multi-millionaire.”

Lottery officials urge the winner to sign the back of the ticket.  The winner, who has 182 days to claim, can decide between the $108.8 million annuity or the approximate $65 million cash option.  After taxes, if the cash option is chosen, the winner will receive a lump payment of nearly $43 million.

    What is all the comments with GOD bless you?  Are you trying and hoping that some money will come to you if you say GOD Bless you to the winner?  That is using GOD’s name in vain.  Also, remember, there is a separation between Church and State.  So, do not mix the two.

    Live life to its fullest! My mom won 200K playing Power Ball this past March.  My father found out he had cancer 2 months later. July, only 2 short months later, he passed away! How can life take you from the highest highs, to the lowest lows!

    Thank God, her house is now paid off!
