June 15 drawing produces in-state game’s biggest jackpot of 2023
The Maryland Lottery is looking for a new millionaire after a jackpot-winning Multi-Match ticket was sold in Harford County. The estimated annuity value of the jackpot for the Thursday, June 15 drawing was $1.1 million.
The winner can choose between the annuity, paid in 25 equal installments, or an estimated $710,000 cash option (before taxes). The winning ticket with the numbers 1, 8, 10, 24, 36 and 37 was sold at Wawa #557 located at 1515 East Churchville Road in Bel Air. The store will receive an $1,100 bonus for selling the winning ticket.
Lottery officials encourage the winner to sign the back of the ticket and keep it in a safe location. The player has 182 days after the date of the drawing to claim the prize.
This is the fourth Multi-Match jackpot win of 2023 and the largest so far this year, surpassing a $750,000 jackpot that was hit in the Feb. 6 drawing. The game’s jackpot was hit six times in 2022 and five times in 2021.
The Multi-Match jackpot was last hit for $570,000 on April 13. The top four Multi-Match jackpot wins to date were $4.8 million on Sept. 19, 2009; $4.45 million on March 18, 2010; $3.8 million on Dec. 16, 2010 and $3.6 million on June 8, 2015.
Multi-Match, which started in 2006, is Maryland’s in-state jackpot game, with tickets sold only here in Maryland. On each $2 Multi-Match ticket, players receive three lines of six numbers from a range of 1 to 43. The Lottery draws six numbers from 1 to 43 every Monday and Thursday evening.
To win the jackpot, players must match all six numbers on any one line. Players can win up to $1,000 by matching between three and five numbers on any one line, and they can win up to $2,000 more by matching between five and 18 numbers total on all three lines combined. The overall chances of winning are 1 in 8.5. The chances of winning the jackpot on a $2 ticket are approximately 1 in 2 million.
