Powerball and Multi-Match Hit; Mega Millions Climbs to $206 Million

What a holiday weekend it was for Maryland Lottery players. It all began on Thursday evening, when a $625,000 winning Multi-Match ticket was sold at Lee’s Convenience Market, located at 8500 Allentown Rd. in Ft. Washington. Next, on Christmas Eve, Powerball’s $128.8 million jackpot was hit in Maryland. That ticket was purchased at Wesley’s, located at 3700 Telegraph Rd. in Elkton.

Players who did not win one of those two jackpots, still have a chance to become Maryland’s next multi-millionaire. Tonight’s Mega Millions drawing is worth $206 million, with a cash option of $151.9 million.

The winning Multi-Match numbers for Thursday were 5, 12, 32, 36, 37 and 39. The winning Christmas Eve Powerball numbers were 14, 16, 30, 51, 52 and Power Ball 19. Both winning tickets were with the Quick Pick option and remain unclaimed. All winners have 182 days to claim their prizes from the date of the drawing.
