Winning $414,000,000 Mega Millions Ticket Sold In Maryland

March 19th, 2014

$1 million second-tier winner sold in Crownsville

Maryland is once again the home of a Mega Millions jackpot after selling one of the winning tickets for last night’s drawing. The winning ticket, which was sold at Lady’s Liquors located at 6474 Crain Highway in La Plata, matched all six numbers including the Mega Ball. The $414 million jackpot has a cash option of $230.9 million. Since there were two winning tickets sold nationwide, after taxes the Maryland winner will take home approximately $76.4 million if choosing the cash option. For selling the winning ticket, Maryland will receive more than $10.1 million in tax revenue. The winning numbers were 11, 19, 24, 33, 51, and Mega Ball 07.

In addition to the big winner, there was a $1 million second-tier winning ticket sold at Waterbury Liquors located at 1021 Generals Highway in Crownsville. That winner matched the first five winning numbers, missing only the Mega Ball.

This is the first Mega Millions jackpot win in Maryland this year, following two Maryland jackpot wins in 2013 when an Anne Arundel County man won $189 million in October and a Mt. Airy couple won $26 million in February. So far this year there have been four $1 million Mega Millions second-tier tickets sold in Maryland.

“Maryland was fortunate to have two jackpot winners last year. We are pleased to welcome the Mega Millions jackpot back to the state,” said Maryland Lottery Director Stephen Martino. “A heartfelt congratulations to the Maryland Mega Millions winner.”

The Lottery encourages the ticket holder to sign the back of the ticket and keep it in a safe place until he or she claims the prize. Winners have 182 days from the date of the drawing to claim their winnings and must do so in person at the Baltimore Claims Center at Lottery Headquarters located at 1800 Washington Boulevard.

The ticket holder isn’t the only one who wins; the retailer who sold the winning jackpot ticket will receive a $100,000 commission. The retailer that sold the second-tier winner will receive $1,000.

Carroll County Couple ‘Hit the Jackpot’

April 17th, 2014
Allen & Marcia Heyman - Hit the Jackpot_web

Win $10,000 Playing Scratch-off

Allen and Marcia Heyman of Sykesville have always enjoyed playing scratch-offs but never had a reason to come into Maryland Lottery headquarters. That changed one day, three weeks ago, when Marcia purchased the $20 Hit the Jackpot scratch-off with some money she found in her pocket. Her unplanned purchase revealed a $10,000 prize.

“I started scratching off the ticket and saw $5,000,” she explained.

Marcia quickly showed her husband, who also enjoys scratch-offs, and then finished checking the ticket. Low and behold, there was another $5,000 prize on the ticket, bringing their total winnings to $10,000.

When asked if they have won a prize this large before, Allan proudly said, “We’ve won $1,000 three times before and $500 a couple of times.”

The couple held on to the ticket for over three weeks before bringing it into Lottery headquarters in Baltimore to claim. After signing the back of the ticket, Allen kept it in their bedroom for safekeeping.

“This was the first day I had off,” Marcia said. “We’re off tomorrow as well, so we thought we’d make it a long weekend.”

To celebrate finally claiming their prize, the couple planned to visit The Maryland Zoo in Baltimore with their niece, who had accompanied them. The Heymans will use the money from their big win to pay off Marcia’s car.

Marcia purchased their “jackpot” winner at Martins #307 located at 1320 Londontown Boulevard in Eldersburg. There are two $1 million, three $50,000 and 12 $10,000 prizes remaining on the ticket.

Virginia Man Wins $50,000 Powerball Prize at Maryland Casino

April 17th, 2014
Rickie Beavers - Powerball_webRickie Beavers of Arlington, Va. enjoyed time gambling at Maryland Live! Casino and, before leaving, bought a $15 Powerball ticket with the Power Play option. He wound up winning $50,000!

Purchased Power Play Option for $5, Quintupling His Win

Rickie Beavers of Arlington, Va. has always enjoyed frequenting area casinos, but never in his wildest dreams did he think he would walk out of the doors with a $50,000 Powerball win.

When Rickie and his wife of six years were on their way out of Maryland Live! Casino, he stopped to buy a $15 Powerball ticket for the road. The Virginia resident used Quick Pick to select five lines of numbers with the Power Play option.

“We’ll take $200 and head to the penny slots,” Rickie said. “We stay away from some of the other games, but we really enjoy penny slots. We’re sure to only gamble what we can afford.”

The 56-year-old told Lottery officials that he always makes sure he has a little money left to buy a Powerball ticket. “I had $20 left that day so I bought a $15 ticket,” he explained.

The next day, when Rickie had the chance to check his Powerball ticket on his phone, he noticed that he had matched four numbers and the PowerBall. The extra $1 he spent on the Power Play option certainly paid off – it quintupled his winnings from $10,000 to $50,000!

He showed his wife the winning ticket and the couple celebrated before stashing the ticket somewhere safe. “I actually had to come to Lottery headquarters three times to claim,” he said, laughing. “I forgot my Social Security card the first time.”

The lucky Virginian is looking forward to using the winnings for a big trip. Rickie has already started planning a vacation with his wife to St. Lucia.

Rickie found his luckiest win to date at the Maryland Live! Casino located at 7002 Arundel Mills in Hanover.

Retired Banker Buys Winning Multi-Match Ticket

April 16th, 2014

Baltimore County Woman Takes Cash Option on $775,000 Jackpot

A retired banker has a substantial deposit to make because she followed through on a whim to buy a Maryland Lottery Multi-Match ticket.

The impulse to play a Lottery game hit while the Baltimore County resident was going for a walk around a neighborhood track. Deciding to act on the thought, the loyal Lottery player headed to a Lottery retailer in Randallstown. She entered and quickly felt drawn to the Multi-Match game, so she bought a ticket for the April 14 drawing. Guess who hit the $775,000 jackpot! Our happy winner took the cash option of $525,000 on the top-tier prize win.

“This is a blessing,” she said, explaining that she cares for her ailing husband. “It’s amazing to be able to have money to do what you’d like to do for loved ones.”

Typically, she plays Lottery games on Fridays. The Pikesville resident usually buys two Mega Millions tickets, two Powerball tickets and two Bonus Match 5 tickets. She also enjoys playing scratch-offs, particularly Sweethearts and other $2 and $3 instant tickets. She rarely plays Multi-Match, however!

When she checked her ticket, the lucky lady saw that it matched the winning numbers. The 62-year-old remained cautious. She verified her win online at mdlottery.com and then began dancing around the room! After a quick song and dance, she immediately signed her ticket and placed it in her wallet.

Our winner shared news of her good fortune with her husband of more than 40 years but not her sons. They each will receive a monetary gift but not news of the win!

She found her Lottery luck at Pimlico Check Cashing located at 3538 Brenbrook Drive in Randallstown.
