$448 Million Jackpot Split Among One Minnesota, Two New Jersey Tickets
Maryland is certainly a lucky place to play Powerball. More than 103,000 Powerball players won prizes of varying amounts in the state last night, including $1 million. This marks the eighth second-tier $1 million Powerball winning ticket sold in Maryland this year.
The winning second-tier ticket was bought at the Dunkirk Fastop, located at 9880 Southern Maryland Blvd. in Dunkirk in Calvert County. The winning ticket matched all five white balls, missing only the Power Ball number. The winning numbers from Wednesday’s drawing were 05, 25, 30, 58, 59 and Power Ball 32. The winner, or winners, must claim the prize in 182 days in person at Lottery headquarters, located at 1800 Washington Blvd. in Baltimore.
Maryland’s Powerball players aren’t the only winners when Powerball hits at home. The retailer that sold the winning $1 million second-tier ticket will receive a $2,500 bonus for selling the second-tier prize.
The $448 million jackpot was the third largest in the game’s history. In March 2012, three Marylanders dubbed “The Three Amigos” took home a third of the world-record-breaking $656 million Mega Millions jackpot.
Powerball drawings can be seen on Wednesday and Saturday evenings at 11:22 p.m. on WBAL-TV, Channel 11. The multistate game is sold in 45 states and jurisdictions.

Total revenue contributions surpass previous year by 27.6%
The Maryland Lottery and Gaming Control Agency (MLGCA) today announced FY2013 sales and revenue. Together, traditional lottery and casinos sent $829.54 million to the state, an increase of 27.6% from the previous fiscal year. Maryland’s General Fund and Education Trust Fund benefit from these contributions.
Traditional lottery sales dipped slightly from FY2012, with the agency generating $1.756 billion in sales, down 2.2% from $1.795 billion, and contributing $545.2 in revenue to the state’s General Fund, down 1.9% from $556 million. “With the growth of Maryland’s casino industry, the decrease in traditional lottery sales this past fiscal year was not unexpected,” MLGCA Director Stephen Martino said. “However, the good news is clear: When combining traditional lottery and casino gaming revenue, there is a significant increase from the previous fiscal year in the amount of money generated for the state.” Year-end highlights include:
- Traditional lottery sales: $1.756 billion;
- Traditional lottery revenue: $545.2 million;
- Commissions earned by retailers: $119.8 million (sales commissions rose to 5.5% on Jan. 1, 2013);
- Prizes paid to players: more than $1.036 billion;
- Operational expenses: remained consistent at just 3.1% of total sales.
Mega Millions and Powerball, the Maryland Lottery’s multi-state jackpot games, registered a combined $202.4 million in sales. Combined sales for all Lottery jackpot games — Mega Millions, Powerball, Bonus Match 5 and Multi-Match — totaled $252.2 million. The Maryland Lottery’s monitor games, which include Keno and Racetrax, had combined sales of $493.6 million.
In other game sales figures, Pick 3 totaled $245.5 million, Pick 4 sales came in at $267.8, and the Lottery’s newest game, 5 Card Cash, brought in $11.2 million. The Lottery’s instant games, or scratch-offs, garnered $485.8 million in sales.
Casino gaming at the state’s four operating casinos generated $608,348,515 in revenue, with $284,340,606 sent to the state’s Education Trust Fund. In November 2012, voters passed a gaming referendum that resulted in the expansion of table games into Maryland casinos, 24-hour facility operations and approval for a new casino site in Prince George’s County. Year-end highlights include:
- Contributions of $284.34 million to the Education Trust Fund (ETF), an increase of $189.8 million from FY2012. This fund was established to support early childhood education, public elementary and secondary education, public school construction and capital improvement projects in the state.
- In addition to the ETF contribution, FY2013 slot machine revenue benefited the following: Maryland Horse Racing Purse Dedication Account ($39.1 million), local impact grants ($30.7 million), Racetrack Facility Renewal Account ($10.8 million), MLGCA operating costs ($11.2 million) and Small, Minority & Women-Owned Businesses Account ($8.4 million).
- Employment at Maryland’s four casinos has grown to approximately 3,500, with full-time employees benefiting from comprehensive healthcare and retirement investment options.
“These impressive revenue numbers wouldn’t have been possible without the hard work and dedication of MLGCA staff and employees in the gaming industry throughout Maryland,” Martino said.
Since its inception in 1973, the Maryland Lottery has contributed more than $13.3 billion in revenue to the state of Maryland. Maryland’s casino program, which began in September 2010, has generated $906.4 million in revenue, with more than $428.9 million supporting education in the state. To keep Marylanders informed and maintain integrity and transparency in its regulation of the state’s casinos, the MLGCA posts monthly financial reports on casino revenue on its website, gaming.mdlottery.com

Buys $30,000 winning Fire and Ice Multiplier scratch-off to pass the time
A bored Brooklyn Park man is $30,000 richer because he got tired of waiting as his friends bought and played scratch-off tickets at a gas station. To pass the time, the entrepreneur decided to check out the scratch-off selection and wound up taking home a top-prize winner!
The 43-year-old plays a Lottery game of some sort every week and his biggest win was $5,000 on Keno. His games of choice are Mega Millions and Powerball. He only buys scratch-off tickets as gifts for his wife of 20 years and for his 19-year-old daughter. On the fateful day he broke his Lottery-playing pattern because of his friends, he selected two Fire and Ice Multiplier scratch-off tickets for himself. His friends were also playing the Fire and Ice Multiplier scratch-offs but they weren’t having any luck.
The man waited until he arrived home before scratching the tickets. “I thought it was some kind of trick ticket or something,” our lucky winner told Lottery officials. He couldn’t believe his eyes. He asked his wife to check the ticket for him to make sure he had won. What was her reaction to seeing his ticket? “I had to do my happy dance,” his wife said, smiling.
This prize comes as a much-needed bonus for our self-employed winner, who has operated as his own boss for 11 years. He currently owns a cleaning business and worked as a chef for several years. He found his good fortune at the Sunflower Shell located at 8078 Ritchie Highway in Pasadena.

The Powerball jackpot hit $425 million for Wednesday night’s drawing, following a surge in nationwide sales this week. The cash option also increased to $244.7 million.
The jackpot rolled over on Saturday to $400 million after no one hit the lucky numbers. This $425 million jackpot remains the third largest Powerball jackpot to date and the fourth largest overall jackpot in history. Powerball luck visited Maryland seven times this year, bringing second-tier $1 million Powerball jackpot wins to ticket holders in Baltimore, Dundalk, Mechanicsville, Middletown, Taneytown and Westminster.
The largest multistate jackpot in U.S. history was the Mega Millions $656 million jackpot in March 2012, which produced three winning tickets. Three Maryland public school employees, who took home a $218.6 million portion of the record-breaking prize, claimed one of the winning tickets.
On May 18, the Powerball jackpot set its own record of $590.5 million with one winner in Florida. Along with becoming the largest Powerball jackpot ever, that jackpot was the second largest in U.S. history. The second largest Powerball jackpot was $587.5 million on Nov. 28, 2012.
Players can watch Powerball drawings on Wednesday and Saturday evenings at 11:22 p.m. on WBAL-TV, Channel 11. Winning numbers are available on the Maryland Lottery website at mdlottery.com, by text message (follow directions on the website under “Winning Numbers” to sign up) and on the Lottery’s winning numbers phone line at 410-230-8830. The multistate game is sold in 45 states and jurisdictions.

Loyal Maryland Lottery player follows a lucky feeling
Playing a complicated set of numbers that hold personal significance led to a financial blessing for a lucky Randallstown resident. She won $50,000 by following her hunch to choose Bonus Match 5 as her game of the day.
She bases her number-selection system on her two adult children, using the number 2, their birth dates and how old they were when significant events occurred in their lives. The mother of two carries her lucky numbers with her and chooses between playing Bonus Match 5, Pick 3, Pick 4, Powerball and scratch-off games. She’s won $10,000 before but never an amount this large.
On this fateful day, the health care worker “had a feeling” that Bonus Match 5 was her game. She stopped at her lucky store and picked her numbers.
“I remember I came home from work so tired and I took a nap,” the woman said. “Then, something said, ‘Wake up.’ I did and I looked at the TV screen and the Bonus Match 5 numbers appeared. I said to myself, ‘They look very familiar.’ ”
She didn’t do anything though, or say anything, until one daughter asked her about her numbers. The widow quietly remarked that she might have won $50,000 and her daughter quickly got the ticket, checked the numbers and excitedly verified the win. “I am so very, very thankful,” the woman said.
“I immediately signed the ticket and hid it away,” the 65-year-old said. She hid the ticket with some of her late husband’s belongings for the 10 days it took for her to come to Lottery headquarters in Baltimore. “He kept it safe!”
They have not told anyone about the win. Her lucky store, though, posted a sign in the window announcing that it sold a winning Bonus Match 5 ticket. The store’s clerks were reminding their regular Lottery customers to check their tickets in hopes of finding the winner. “When I saw the sign in the window, I knew it was me,” the woman said, enjoying her secret win.
During the time it took to bring her winning ticket to the Lottery, she decided on several ways to spend the money. She is considering retirement after 40+ years on the job. She also plans to pay a few bills, donate to charity and make some home repairs. “I’m going to spread it out,” she said.
Lady Luck crossed our winner’s path at Kim’s R.P. Liquors, trading as Randallstown Plaza Liquors at 3619 Offutt Road in Randallstown.
