Powerball Jackpot Jumps to $216 Million

October 21st, 2013

Jackpot cash option for Wednesday drawing reaches $124.8 million

Good news, Maryland! Powerball is on a roll again. The jackpot climbed to $216 million with a cash option of $124.8 million for the upcoming drawing on Wednesday, Oct. 23. The Saturday drawing failed to produce a jackpot winner, allowing Powerball to continue a roll that started on Sept. 21.

Maryland has enjoyed two in-state jackpot winners since Powerball began in the state in 2010. On Christmas Eve 2011, a Pennsylvania couple purchased a $128.8 million winning ticket from Wesley’s in Elkton. In September of the same year, an Abingdon couple bought a $108.8 winning ticket at Wine World in Abingdon. The largest ever Powerball jackpot, $590.5 million, was claimed by a Florida woman last June.

The most recent multi-state jackpot win in Maryland took place on Oct. 1, when an Anne Arundel County man won $189 million playing Mega Millions. So far this year, the state has seen nine $1 million second-tier Powerball winners. Watch Powerball drawings on Wednesday and Saturday evenings at 11:22 p.m. on WBAL-TV, Channel 11. The multi-state game is sold in 45 states and jurisdictions.

Edgewater Man Panics When Winning Ticket Gets Wet

October 21st, 2013
Matthew Funkhouser - 7x the Money

Matthew “Shane” Funkhouser happily poses with his new investment money

Wins $77,700 on 7x the Money scratch-off

After struggling for years to keep his home improvement business afloat during tough economic times, an Anne Arundel County man says his lucky break has come in the form of a Maryland Lottery scratch-off ticket.

Good fortune found Matthew “Shane” Funkhouser on Oct. 11 at a Royal Farms store in Edgewater, where he cashed in a winning $10 scratch-off ticket he’d been carrying around in a back pocket. Shane reinvested his winnings in two 7x the Money scratch-offs. The Edgewater resident still doesn’t know what made him break his lifelong routine of scratching newly purchased tickets in the store. The 32-year-old father of one just took the tickets home.

A lifelong scratch-off player, Shane was optimistic that he would win something. He typically wins something, from a smaller amount up to $500, when he plays a scratch-off for the first time.

“When I scratched the first prize amount for $1,000, I almost lost it,” he said. As he kept scratching and revealing more green 7s, he grew more and more excited. “Then, I saw all 15 of the 7s on the ticket.” He had just won $77,700!

“I almost put a hole through the kitchen floor jumping up and down,” he said. Shane alerted his parents, family members and a few friends and signed the winning ticket. However, at some point in all of the excitement, the ticket ended up on the kitchen counter with the signature facing down on a moist spot. The ink of Shane’s signature smeared when he picked the ticket up.

“I was so upset,” he recalled. “When I picked it up I saw the water and I went into panic mode. I said, ‘This is the biggest break I’ve had in my life. There is no way I’m not going to get to cash this.’ ”

Shane carefully dried off the ticket and enough of his signature remained that he was able to claim his $77,700 prize at Maryland Lottery headquarters in Baltimore. Until then, he placed the ticket in a waterproof bag and hid it carefully “where no one would find it.”

His Lottery luck continued the night before he claimed his prize. Shane won four of seven Keno games and then played 11 scratch-off tickets, hitting eight out of 11.

“This could not have come to a better person,” Shane said, noting that he enjoys running a small business and creating jobs in the community. “I always said, if I could get one chance I would set myself up for the rest of my life.”

Shane has detailed plans to invest his winnings in small-business ventures. He is considering buying a tow truck operation and helping a friend expand a vehicle customization business to a third site in the Annapolis area. His six-year-old daughter Kamryn also will benefit from his lucky break, Shane said. “Kamryn will have a quite a Christmas this year.”

Our happy winner bought the lucky ticket at the Royal Farms store located at 301 Londontown Road in Edgewater.

Traffic Jam Wrecks Man’s Plans but Leads to Lottery Luck

October 18th, 2013

Hit The JackpotWins $50,000 playing Hit The Jackpot scratch game

Bad traffic that wrecked a Gaithersburg man’s plans to visit his mom on his birthday set him on a collision course with good fortune: a Maryland Lottery scratch-off ticket worth $50,000.

“My girlfriend and I were rushing to see my mom before the evening got too late,” said the 32-year-old father of four. “She likes me to visit on my birthday. We realized that we weren’t going to make it because of the traffic, so we turned around.”

By then, the hour was late. They were about to pass a convenience store when his girlfriend suggested stopping in to buy a Lottery ticket. Our winner, an occasional scratch-off player, had enjoyed playing the Hit The Jackpot scratch-off game in the past so he bought a $20 ticket and took it home to play in the morning.

“I scratched it when I woke up, rubbing off the numbers but not the prizes,” he said. After noticing one match, then another, then several more, he could resist no longer. He scratched the prize amounts, seeing the $50,000 total.

“My mind went blank,” he said. “I started trembling.”

He plans to dedicate some of his winnings to his landscaping business. Our winner found his Lottery luck at the 7-Eleven at 3 Professional Drive in Gaithersburg. There are six Hit The Jackpot $50,000 winners still in stores, as well as three of the game’s $1 million top prizes.

Changes Ahead for Mega Millions Game

October 18th, 2013
Mega Millions - Mega Improved

Look for more prizes, bigger starting jackpots

Heads up, Mega Millions players! Exciting changes are coming to the game on Saturday, Oct. 19, to create mind-boggling jackpots and more multimillionaires than ever. For the same $1 ticket, you’re going to see better odds of winning a prize, larger-starting jackpots and faster-growing jackpots.

The changes debut with the Tuesday, Oct. 22 drawing and are the first revisions to the multistate game since June 2005. Mega Millions still holds the jackpot record over Powerball, another multistate game. Credit for the largest jackpot in history – $656 million – went to Mega Millions in March 2012. Both games sell in 45 states and jurisdictions.

“We expect these changes will increase interest and excitement in the game,” said Stephen Martino, director of the Maryland Lottery and Gaming Control Agency. “Improvements to the jackpots and better odds for winning any prize should attract players in greater numbers.”

Powerball changed its game structure in 2012 and doubled ticket prices to $2 in a move designed to boost its jackpots and generate player interest. The largest Powerball jackpot win of $590.5 million went to a Florida ticket holder in May 2013.

Mega Millions changes include:

  • A jump in starting jackpots from $12 million to $15 million.
  • A rollover of $5 million if a drawing doesn’t produce a winning ticket.
  • An increase in second-tier prizes for matching five numbers from minimums of $250,000 to $1 million.
  • Increased odds of winning any prize (odds improve from 1:40 to 1:15).
  • Changes in two pools of numbers. Players will choose five of 75 white balls in the revised game compared to five of 56 white balls now. For the sixth ball, the gold Mega ball, players choose from 15 balls in the new game compared to 46 balls in the current game.
  • An increase in the Megaplier option, which adds $1 to the cost of a ticket. Megaplier numbers (now 2, 3 and 4) are randomly selected before each Mega Millions draw and can multiply winnings by 2, 3 and 4 times. The revised game adds a 5x Megaplier to the mix.

Mega Millions drawings take place every Tuesday and Friday and are televised in Maryland at 11:22 p.m. on WBAL-TV 11. Players can also find results posted on the Maryland Lottery website at mdlottery.com.
