$2.8 Million Multi-Match Win in Laurel Last NightFriday, October 14th, 2011
Sixth jackpot win produced by game this year
The Multi-Match jackpot, which had been growing for nearly six months, was hit last night in Laurel. The winning Multi-Match ticket worth $2.8 million was purchased at the Finish Line Liquor store, located at 3480 Ft. Meade Rd. in Laurel. Last night’s winning numbers were 04, 05, 06, 12, 24 and 30.
“We’ve been watching this jackpot grow since mid-May,” reported the Lottery’s Director of Communications Carole Everett. The last Multi-Match jackpot hit was May 17, 2011, which was an $850,000 win in Silver Spring. “It’s unusual for the jackpot to get much above $1 million before it’s won,” added Everett. The largest Multi-Match jackpot ever was $4.8 million in 2009.
Thursday’s lucky Multi-Match winner has 182 days to claim either the $2.8 million annuity prize or the $2.1 million cash option.
