Chose the cash option of $1 million
An 89-year-old Charles County resident became emotional while sharing his story with Maryland Lottery officials on Monday afternoon. The Multi-Match subscriber had good reason to be moved – he had just finished filling out the paperwork to claim his $1.5 million Multi-Match jackpot prize.
That Nov. 21 win claimed on Dec. 2 has been in the works for quite a long time. “It’s overdue,” said the retiree, chuckling. The widower has played Maryland Lottery games since the Lottery’s inception in 1973 and held a Multi-Match subscription for more than 15 years. He routinely checks his numbers on Sundays against those drawn Monday and Thursday nights in the popular game.
“I had a printout of the winning numbers, took them home and looked at them,” said the kind man with a wavering voice. He had to look twice. “I said to myself, ‘Something isn’t right here.’ ”
The lucky man had matched all six numbers on a single line. For two days, he kept the big win a secret, waiting for his family to visit. “They came over for lunch one day and I told my stepson to take a look at the ticket.”
The group was in awe as they checked the numbers. “Only a few people in the family know,” the man shared.
For now, the White Plains resident plans to keep the winnings safe in the bank. On his way out of the Winners Lounge, he stopped a Lottery employee to ask if he could claim the $100 he had won on the same subscription while at Lottery headquarters in Baltimore. It’s safe to say, this lucky man will continue to enjoy playing the Maryland Lottery’s Multi-Match game.
This was the eighth Multi-Match jackpot-winning ticket sold this year, including one held by a 94-year-old retired federal employee who took home $800,000 in April.

Takes home $10,000 third-tier prize
A Severn woman has mega reasons to be thankful for this year. Just before Thanksgiving, the 54-year-old won $10,000 playing Powerball by matching four white balls and the Mega Ball.
The frequent Lottery player followed her regular routine, checking her Powerball numbers on the Maryland Lottery website. This time, the result was vastly different as the Anne Arundel County resident saw the numbers on the website match the numbers on her ticket.
“This is definitely the largest prize I have ever won,” the lucky winner told Lottery officials. She claimed the $10,000 prize for the Nov. 23 drawing.
With her winnings, the real estate agent plans to pay bills. She bought her lucky ticket at Giant #141 located at 7940 Crain Hwy. in Glen Burnie.

Disabled Washington, D.C. man to invest Maryland Lottery prize in vendor’s license
A Washington, D.C. man sidelined with a disability even before he suffered a mobility-impairing stroke in June is ready to suit up for a new venture, thanks to his $50,000 Top Secret Cash scratch-off win.
The 61-year-old bachelor is counting his blessings for a unique Thanksgiving this year. The father of an adult son and grandfather of two, he routinely visits a 7-Eleven in College Park to buy coffee and Maryland Lottery scratch-offs. He favors that location because his last big scratch-off win of $3,000 in the 1990s occurred at the store.
This Thanksgiving, following his routine, he arrived at the store to buy coffee and a $5 Top Secret Cash scratch-off. He scratched off the ticket without finding a win. Unlike other days, there was not another soul in the University of Maryland area store except staff members. “Something said, ‘try it again,’ ” our winner recalled, so the lucky man bought a second Top Secret Cash scratch-off. He scratched off a $50,000 winner right there on the spot.
“God blessed me,” he said. The winner kept thinking to himself, “This is unbelievable.”
He wore a winter coat that day with very deep pockets. After calmly verifying the win with a clerk, he tucked the winning ticket deep inside a pocket. His win is so top secret he told no one about his good fortune during Thanksgiving dinner. “I just smiled and enjoyed my turkey,” he said.
Even today, only his older brother knows his secret. The happy winner kept the ticket hidden in his apartment all weekend until he could get to Lottery headquarters in Baltimore early Monday morning. He plans to invest the money and buy a vendor’s license to operate a business in Washington, D.C.
His lucky Prince George’s County store is the 7-Eleven at 4404 Knox Road in College Park. Three top-prize-winning $50,000 tickets are still awaiting discovery in Maryland stores.
The holidays are here which mean large crowds and long lines. Skip the holiday madness this year and use your My Lottery Rewards points to get gifts for your loved ones!

Paul Powell of Myersville won $77,700 playing the Maryland Lottery’s new Super Slots scratch-off released to area stores on Nov. 18.
Claims $77,700 top prize on $5 Maryland Lottery ticket
Frederick county resident Paul Powell picks up a newspaper, coffee and a few Maryland Lottery scratch-offs every weekend. Always looking for new tickets with multipliers, Paul decided to try the $5 Super Slots scratch-off. Little did he know, he was about to walk away with the $77,700 top prize.
The 34-year-old always scratches the numbers he needs to match before revealing the associated prize. When he unveiled the sole matching number on his ticket, he was completely shocked to see the $77,700 top prize.
“I had to look it over again and again, I thought I was seeing it wrong,” he said, laughing. “I even read the numbers out loud to make sure it was right.”
The Myersville resident had one of the six Super Slots top-prize-winning tickets in his hands. He shared the good news with his wife of over a year and shot off a quick text to the rest of his family.
“We were supposed to go pick out our Christmas tree later that day anyway, so it was pretty funny. They were all pretty excited for me,” he told Lottery officials.
Paul is looking forward to becoming a first-time homeowner, thanks to his lucky ticket. “I’ve been renting my whole life,” he said. “Whatever is left after taxes is going straight toward a down payment on a house. I’m investing it. I’m not going to waste it.”
Paul picked up his lucky Super Slots ticket at the Myersville Sunoco located at 9630 Myersville Road in Myersville. The scratch-offs went on sale at Maryland retailers on Nov. 18. Five $77,700 top-prize tickets, 10 $7,000 winning tickets and 31 $1,000 winning tickets are in area stores along with tens of thousands of prizes from $5 to $490.
Claims second of seven jackpot prizes on Great Big Bingo ticket
An Edgewood resident recently got an early morning Maryland Lottery surprise that made her so weak in the knees she had to sit down. The flea market vendor uncovered the $100,000 top prize on a $5 Maryland Lottery Great Big Bingo scratch-off.
“I was afraid my legs would give way,” the Harford County resident said. She remained seated while contemplating the windfall and stifling the urge to wake her household and share the great news.
Her day got off to an eye-opening start when the 62-year-old pulled out a Great Big Bingo scratch-off purchased the previous day. She noticed a pattern developing as she went through the caller’s numbers and compared them with game boards on her bingo-themed ticket. On the final call number, she revealed a G-46 that completed an X on her bingo card.
That evening, after a day of rechecking the winning ticket, she finally shared the good news with her family and her daughter burst into tears of joy. The winner said the jackpot win would provide some much-needed financial relief for her family. Her daughter “was hoping and praying, just wanting so badly for something good to come my way and here it was,” said the winner. She plans to catch up on bills with her winnings and then may take her mother on a vacation cruise. Our lucky entrepreneur found her winning ticket at Woodbridge Liquors at 1401 Pulaski Highway in Edgewood.
Lucky player takes home $100,000 Green Streak top prize
The Maryland Lottery’s Green Streak scratch-off ticket reminded a 35-year-old man of streaks of lightning, so he kept telling his friends to “get me one of those lightning tickets.” His streak was anything but green until the day the Silver Spring man took matters into his own hands and bought his own $10 ticket. Today, he’s $100,000 richer!
The restaurant employee purchased the ticket on Saturday after leaving work with his three friends. He said the ticket, with the number 29, was at the Golden Bull Restaurant in the morning and was still there when he got off work that evening. “I know that a $10 book of tickets only has 30 tickets in it and this was the 29th ticket,” said the Montgomery County resident. The fact the ticket was still there hours later made him think he was meant to buy it. “My friends were all stunned that I won,” he said.
Since the Lottery headquarters in Baltimore was going to close for the Thanksgiving holiday, the lucky player rushed into the city to claim his prize. “I could not get up here soon enough,” he told Lottery officials.
The husband and father of two plans to use the winnings to give his kids a great Christmas, to buy a nice piece of jewelry for his wife and something for his friends who were present when he scratched off his winning ticket. He bought it at the Golden Bull Restaurant located at 9107 Riggs Road in Adelphi.
