Christmas was a bit brighter for one lucky Maryland Lottery player this year thanks to a $540,000 Multi-Match win.

The News Stand at 6901 Security Blvd. in Windsor Mill sold the jackpot-winning ticket for the Dec. 25 drawing. The winning numbers are 11, 16, 21, 36, 37 and 41. The winner can choose between the estimated annuity of $540,000, paid in 25 equal installments, or an estimated $290,000 cash option (before taxes).

Lottery officials encourage the winner to sign the back of the ticket and keep it in a safe location. The winner has 182 days after the date of the drawing to claim the prize.

Players must redeem prizes larger than $25,000 by mail or at Lottery headquarters in the Montgomery Park Business Center, 1800 Washington Blvd., Suite 330 in Baltimore.

The News Stand has reason to celebrate, too. They will receive a $1,000 bonus from the Lottery for selling the winning ticket.

This is the 11th Multi-Match jackpot win of 2023. The game’s jackpot was last hit for $620,000 on Dec. 7 in Elkridge. Six Multi-Match jackpots were won in 2022 and there were five jackpot winners in 2021.
