Third jackpot hit in 2020
The torrential storms that pounded parts of Maryland yesterday flooded a lucky Multi-Match player with cash! Check your tickets because someone won the $540,000 jackpot in the Monday, July 6 drawing.
The winner, who is the third player to hit a Multi-Match jackpot in 2020, can choose between the estimated $540,000 annuity and an estimated $290,000 cash option (before taxes). The jackpot-winning ticket with the numbers 7, 12, 16, 21, 38 and 43 was sold at Merritt Boulevard Shell located at 2020 Merritt Boulevard in Dundalk.
Lottery officials recommend the player sign the back of the ticket and keep it in a safe place until claiming the prize. Winners typically get 182 days from the date of the drawing to claim prizes. However, the Lottery has temporarily extended claiming deadlines due to Maryland’s COVID-19 state of emergency.
The winner can claim the prize by mail or in person by scheduling an appointment at the Lottery Customer Resource Center in Baltimore.

The lucky Baltimore County retailer will receive a $1,000 bonus for selling jackpot-winner. Multi-Match is a $2 game.
