Boonsboro Man Lands $44,000 Mega Millions Prize

Washington County player quadruples prize with Megaplier feature

Adding the Megaplier option to his Mega Millions ticket and playing the same four numbers on three lines of his $9 ticket gave a Boonsboro man a $44,000 prize in the May 17 drawing.

The Washington County resident visited his local Lottery retailer, Martin’s #6104 located at 1729 Dual Highway in Hagerstown, to buy his lucky ticket. The winning numbers were 7, 21, 24, 41, 65 with a Mega Ball of 24.

He placed three bets on his ticket, matching four numbers – 7, 21, 24, and 65 – on all three wagers plus hit the Mega Ball on one of the three bets. The Megaplier of x4, which he added to the ticket for $1 extra per wager, quadrupled his prize. The 49-year-old winner’s final tally of prizes totaled $44,000!

The odds of winning with that combination on a $2 bet are 1 in 931,001.
