Two $1 Million Maryland Lottery Prizes Claimed Simultaneously

February 9th, 2017
$1 mil Mega Millions Hammer webOne of Maryland’s two new millionaires, the “Big Hammer,” celebrates his Mega Millions win.

Winners claim Mega Millions and Royal Gems scratch-off prizes

It’s not every day that a winner walks into the Maryland Lottery’s Customer Resource Center to claim a $1 million prize, let alone two $1 million winners at the same time. Today, a Crofton man claimed his $1 million Mega Millions prize and a Bel Air man handed over his $1 million top-prize winning Royal Gems scratch-off.

The $1 million Mega Millions ticket was purchased at Crofton Bowling Centre at 2115 Priest Bridge Drive in Crofton. The 51-year-old winner matched all five white balls on Tuesday night, missing the jackpot by just one number. The new millionaire, who enjoys playing both Mega Millions and Powerball, was accompanied by his brother when claiming the prize. He checked his ticket after hearing that a winning ticket was sold at that location.

“I thought it was a $100,000 winner at first,” said the lucky player, who dubbed himself “Big Hammer” for his Lottery picture. “My brother printed out the story from the Lottery’s website and that’s how we found out it was a million dollar win.”

The Anne Arundel County resident plans to put his winnings in the bank for now. The lucky retailer receives a $2,500 bonus for selling a second-tier Mega Millions ticket.

The other $1 million winner, a 38-year-old from Harford County, also plans to save most of his prize. The lucky Royal Gems scratch-off was purchased at Mace Liquors at 507 Mace Ave. in Essex.  For selling the winning ticket, the retailer will receive a $1,000 bonus.

$10K 100x The Cash Pop Pop web

Pop Pop of Forest Hill finds a $10,000 winning ticket with his eighth game of the day.

Harford County man felt lucky enough to keep playing

A Forest Hill scratch-off fan who decided not to stop buying games until he reached crazy number eight found $10,000 worth of success with his final selection – a 100x The Cash  instant ticket.

On the first round, “Pop Pop” bought four All Cash No Taxes scratch offs at the Royal Farms in Monkton. He handed a winning ticket to the cashier and reinvested the prize into the purchase of three of The Big 10 Ticket game. He won again, added some cash and bought his eighth ticket, the $20 100X The Cash scratch-off.

The 69-year-old won $10,000! “The next time I walked back into the store,” the grandfather said he told the clerk, “You cannot cash this one, but may I borrow a pen, please.”

The retiree immediately signed the back of his winning instant ticket. As he walked back to his car, his daughter surprised him with a phone call. He shared the news of his winnings with her, and then received a called from his wife! Pop Pop has only shared the news of his good fortune with them. He plans to pay off his car with his prize money.

His lucky ticket hailed from Royal Farms #88 located at 3209 Jarrettsville Pike in Harford County.

Racetrax Fan Packing His Bags After Big Win

February 9th, 2017

Grandfather’s Superfecta Box bet with Bonus pays $18,557.20 prize

The latest big winner in Racetrax has played the Maryland Lottery’s computer-animated horse racing game together with his buddy for years, but never before have the horses lined up quite like they did during one recent race.

The lucky man notched the biggest Lottery win of his life, taking home a prize of $18,557.20 that has the 76-year-old thinking about packing his suitcases and taking a vacation, he said with a smile.

Lottery luck met up with the winner and his pal while they were playing Racetrax at Jolly’s Food & Convenience Mart in Baltimore. The loyal player, who also enjoys playing Powerball and Mega Millions, placed a Superfecta Box bet that horses number 1, 9, 11 and 12 would finish in first through fourth place in any order – and they did! His prize also got a boost because he added the Bonus option to his ticket. His race had a 4x multiplier applied to any winning ticket with the Bonus feature.

The father of four, who also has four grandchildren, was watching the monitor when his horses won, he said. Without letting anyone know he was a big winner, the happy man and his friend quietly left the store and came to Lottery headquarters to claim the prize.

For selling a winning Racetrax ticket of $10,000 or more, the retailer will receive a bonus from the Lottery. The Baltimore city store, located at 1500 North Monroe Street, gets a bonus of $185.57 – equal to 1 percent of the prize.

Montgomery County Woman Wins One-in-a-Million Ravens Seats for 20 Years Prize

February 8th, 2017
Ravens Season Tickets 20 Years Bila web

Ariadna Bila couldn’t stop shaking while celebrating her Ravens “Seats for 20 Years” win with her husband, Rogerio and daughter, Kaylin.

Ariadna Bila becomes the eighth Maryland Lottery player to win coveted top prize

Today, one lucky Lottery player discovered what it feels like to be one in a million — literally. Gaithersburg resident Ariadna Bila learned she was selected from more than 1.1 million entries in the “Seats for 20 Years” prize category.  The highly sought-after prize includes two Club Level tickets to every pre-season and regular-season home game, along with parking.

Before this morning’s big announcement, finalists and their guests enjoyed a private tour of M&T Bank Stadium, snapping photos and grinning from ear to ear.  The tour culminated in the Ravens’ locker room, where a personalized jersey — with the winner’s last name — was hanging behind a curtain, waiting to be shown.  Qadry Ismail, former Raven and current member of the Ravens broadcast team, slowly removed the curtain, revealing Ariadna’s name on the jersey.  After she yelled, “Yeah,” and jumped in the air, Ariadna was quickly swept into a group hug with her ecstatic husband, Rogerio and six-year-old daughter, Kaylin.

“This is amazing,” Ariadna said while trying to catch her breath. “I can’t stop shaking!”

The 27-year-old was one of the Ravens second-chance finalists who gathered at the stadium today. All six were already winners, having received $10,000 just for being selected. The other finalists were: Federico Gamboa from Lutherville; Angela Ferraro from Nottingham; Richard Krach from Towson; Mallory Malla from Crofton; and Damien Merritt from Rosedale.

For the eighth year in a row, the Lottery partnered with the Ravens during the 2016 football season. Players entered non-winning $2 and $5 Ravens scratch-offs into their My Lottery Rewards account. Once a ticket was submitted, entrants could select which prize category they wanted to enter, including “Seats for 20 Years”, Away Trips with the Team, Season Tickets for One Season and cash. Throughout the season, more than 3.4 million entries were received for the entire second-chance contest.

Past winners of the “Seats for 20 Years” include Kim Feather from Pasadena; Dawn Brink from Stevensville; Vanessa Williams from Rosedale; Beth Bunch from Baltimore; Vernon Miller, Jr. from Bel Air; Tuesday Johnson from Germantown; and Brenda Grier from Glen Burnie.

Powerball Diva Wins $50,000 Prize in Weekend Drawing

February 8th, 2017
$50K Powerball Diva web

Geneva the “Powerball” Diva from Baltimore, won $50,000 in the Feb. 4 Powerball drawing.

Jackpot rolls to $355 million for Feb. 8 drawing

After five years of playing her personal set of numbers in hopes of landing a big Powerball prize, a 58-year-old fan is enjoying her brush with Lottery luck. The Baltimore woman saw five of her numbers match those in the Feb. 4 drawing. She won $50,000!

Geneva “Powerball” Diva, as she nicknamed herself, followed her Saturday routine that includes purchasing Lottery tickets bearing her sets of numbers. She enjoys Powerball and made sure she bought her $10 ticket for the Saturday night drawing at Market 21. The store, located at 4300 Belair Road in Baltimore, is her favorite weekend Lottery retailer and now a lucky Lottery retailer!

She missed the actual drawing, as often happens on the weekends.

“I typically wait and just get a weekly print out of the numbers,” said the Powerball Diva. “I couldn’t believe it when I saw I matched all of the numbers except for one.”

She was one of 24 players around the country who won $50,000 in the drawing. Two out-of-state players won $1 million but no one hit the jackpot and it rolled to $355 million for the Feb. 8 drawing. The cash option is $154.4 million.

The happy winner said her good fortune arrived at a great time. She plans to use the winnings to get back on her feet financially. Because her brother has been so kind during her struggles, she plans to help his daughter pay for her upcoming wedding. “I will save some of it too,” said Geneva “Powerball” Diva.

Anne Arundel County Retailer Sells $1 Million Mega Millions Ticket

February 8th, 2017

Jackpot rolls to $30 million for Friday’s drawing

Here are a million reasons to smile, Mega Millions players! If you bought a ticket at Crofton Bowling Centre in Crofton for the Tuesday, Feb. 7 drawing, you may be Maryland’s newest millionaire. That ticket matched five of the winning numbers in the drawing to capture a $1 million second-tier prize.

No one won the Mega Millions jackpot, which rolls to $30 million for the Friday, Feb. 10 drawing with a cash option of $18 million. The $1 million ticket sold in Maryland was one of three $1 million winners sold across the country in the Feb. 7 drawing.

Maryland’s $1 million winning ticket was sold at the Crofton Bowling Centre located at 2115 Priest Bridge Drive. Check your ticket for the winning numbers: 23, 28, 37, 56 and 71. The Mega Ball number was 12 and the optional Megaplier number was 5. Lottery officials encourage the winner to sign the back of the ticket immediately and put it in a safe location. The winner has 182 days to claim the prize by coming to Lottery headquarters at 1800 Washington Boulevard in Baltimore. This is Maryland’s first $1 million winning Mega Millions ticket sold in 2017.

The retailer is a winner as well. Crofton Bowling Centre will receive a $2,500 bonus for selling the ticket.

Meanwhile, the Lottery is also still awaiting a visit from another millionaire – the lucky player holding a $1 million winning Powerball ticket from the Nov. 23, 2016 drawing. That unclaimed Powerball ticket was sold by the 7-Eleven store at 1191 Coastal Highway in Ocean City. The winner has until May 23, 2017 to claim the prize.

The last Maryland jackpot win in Mega Millions came in March 2014, when Maryland and Florida players split a $414 million jackpot. That winning ticket was sold at Lady’s Liquors in La Plata.

Mega Millions tickets are sold in 46 states and jurisdictions. Odds of winning the jackpot are 1 in 259 million with overall odds of winning 1 in 15. Watch Mega Millions drawings at 11:22 p.m. Tuesdays and Fridays on WBAL TV. Winning numbers are available at mdlottery.com and on your smartphone by downloading the free MD Lottery app.

Cecil County Family Wins $150,000 Bonus Match 5 Prize

February 8th, 2017
$150K Bonus Match 5 Family web

Cecil County retiree Bob shares a $150,000 Bonus Match 5 prize with his family, including his wife Judy (center), daughter Beth and son (not pictured).

Father shares winning tickets with daughter and son

The phrase “All in the Family” has taken on new meaning for one Cecil County family after “Bob” followed his routine of playing Bonus Match 5 using his grandchildren’s birthdays.

Last weekend, the Elkton retiree had a feeling he can’t explain. Something told him that he was going to win playing his favorite Maryland Lottery game. That’s why, after purchasing one ticket at Station Spirits in North East on Friday, he stopped at Country Store in North East on Sunday to purchase two more.

“I don’t know what it was, but I had a feeling I was going to win big,” said the grandfather of three. “The past few years, I’ve won something around Christmas, but not this year. I guess it came a little later. I’ve never won anything close to this amount.”

The lucky winner checked his numbers at mdlottery.com following Sunday night’s drawing. When he told his wife of 50 years, Judy, that he won on three tickets, she didn’t believe him.

“Once before, I thought I won big but was one number off,” he said, chuckling. “Because of that, my wife didn’t believe me until I had proof this time!”

The gracious man decided to share the winnings with his son and daughter, Beth. Although Bob and Beth haven’t decided what they are going to do with their prizes, his son told Lottery officials that he will use his portion toward his child’s college tuition.

Lottery retailers who sell winning top-prize Bonus Match 5 winning ticket receive a $500 bonus. Since two of the winning tickets were sold at Country Store at 2815 Northeast Road, that store will receive $1,000. The other location, Station Spirits at 2546 Pulaski Highway in North East, will receive a $500 bonus.
