Second Big Multi-Match Win From Western Maryland

Friday, February 15th, 2013

Sharpsburg Woman wins $625,000 Jackpot

The Maryland Lottery’s Multi-Match game is hot. Since 2013 began, there have been three jackpot winners — two of which are from Washington County. The most recent, a 66-year-old Sharpsburg woman and regular Multi-Match player, won the $625,000 Multi-Match jackpot this past Monday night.

“I found out I won late Monday night when my twin sons woke me up with the news,” she said. “They came knocking on my door screaming that I had hit the jackpot.” Her sons checked her ticket online and saw that all her numbers matched. After checking and double checking the winning ticket, the mother-of-six and grandmother-of-one, called a family meeting on Tuesday evening to share the good news. They even skyped with her daughter so she would not be left out.

The big winner nervously claimed her prize today, accompanied by her eldest son. “She was so shaky, she could barely write her name,” he said. The Weis Supermarket employee is grateful for her win and said she is going to share the winnings with her family and pay off some bills. Her son added that they will also help their mom invest some of the winnings for her retirement.

The winning ticket was purchased at Boonsboro Exxon located at 719 N. Main Street in Boonsboro. This is the second Multi-Match jackpot win in Western Maryland in recent weeks. A Hagerstown man claimed a $575,000 jackpot win on January 25th.

    I’m so sick of baltimore county and far out maryland places winning. What about montgomery and pg counties? I think this multimatch is rigged for white folks to win the jackpot. That’s why more people don’t play…it’s too bias.

      liberalpeople: Thanks for writing in. We get this comment a lot. People living in Baltimore believe all the winners are elsewhere and vice versa. Truth is the geographic locations of our winners are all random. There is no way to predict where the winners will be. However, research tells us that more winners come from areas of the State in which more people are playing. Please take a look at our winners stories. There you’ll see that we have winners from all over the State.
