Multi-Match Makes Some Noise

In-State Lottery Jackpot Game Offers $1 Million Jackpot Tonight

Multi-MatchWhile it lives its life in the shadows of its bigger siblings, never getting the attention that they do, tonight the Lottery’s Multi-Match game begins an effort to claim the hearts of local players.  It is now in the running, along with Mega Millions and Powerball, to produce Maryland’s next lottery millionaire.

When Monday’s drawing produced no jackpot winner – although more than 12,000 players did pocket lesser prizes – the game moved into the million dollar zone, a place Multi-Match rarely visits.  “The jackpot begins at $500,000 and climbs each time players fail to match all six winning numbers,” explained Lottery Director of Communications Carole Everett.  “But the reality is that the jackpot usually gets hit before it gets to $1 million.”  Marylanders have won Multi-Match’s top prize five times so far this year, most recently back in May when a Silver Spring man won $850,000.

There are multiple ways to win with Multi-Match. Players may win by matching 3, 4 or 5 numbers on any one line, or by matching 5 to 18 numbers on all three lines combined. To win the jackpot, players must match all six numbers on one line.  Multi-Match drawings can be seen on WBAL-TV Channel 11 on Mondays and Thursdays at 11:22 pm.

    I am an avid player of M.M. and I would like to strongly suggest that the prize ($ 1,000.00) that you pay when someone scores 5 out of 6 numbers is unreasonably little.  Please try to review it.  Thank you.

    I’m Going be the “New MILLIONAIRE TONIGHT”!!!!!(With God HELP)..lets Go SKINS.

  • I dont play multimatch until it hits 1,1 M for the simple reason of the cash out vs the annuity…If the annuity was 20 Yrs and paid 50K i would do that..and feel comfy for life along with my job…but at 29 yrs..its 20K …SO, while i would love to win anything period..i play when i think the Cash out option over $750K.  I am not gonna win powerball or mega millions so if i have to part with my $$ it better be realistic and pay me something
