$550,000 Jackpot Win in Silver Spring is Second This Month
In what seems like an almost weekly occurrence around Lottery Headquarters, the agency’s Multi-Match game has produced another jackpot winner. Last night’s winning numbers were matched by a Silver Spring player who now holds claim to a $550,000 jackpot. The winner has 182 days to claim the prize.
When this jackpot is claimed it will mark the third big Multi-Match winner Lottery officials have met so far in 2011. Last night’s win follows close on the heels of a $650,000 prize won by a Hagerstown man two weeks ago. The winners of a $3.8 million jackpot won in December claimed their prize earlier this month.
“If you have your eyes on a jackpot, Multi-Match seems to be the lucky game,” reported Lottery Communications Director Carole Everett. “We’re also hoping to see top-tier winners in Maryland from Mega Millions and Powerball in 2011.”
Multi-Match drawings can be viewed on Monday and Thursday nights at 11:22 PM on WBAL-TV Channel 11. A $2 purchase delivers three lines of numbers and ten ways to win cash. The winning ticket was purchased at 7-11 on Colesville Rd. in Silver Spring.
