Three winners chose to remain anonymous
The Maryland Lottery awarded $160,000 in prizes on June 1 to vaccinated Marylanders through the $2 Million VaxCash Promotion. In addition to Deidre Poore Eagan, three $40,000 winners who were randomly selected during Memorial Day Weekend visited Lottery Headquarters to claim their prizes.
The May 29 winner from Montgomery County, the May 30 winner from Prince George’s County and the May 31 winner from Carroll County all chose to remain anonymous.
The VaxCash Promotion, announced by Governor Hogan on May 20, is a collaboration of the Maryland Lottery and the Maryland Department of Health, aimed at incentivizing Marylanders who have not yet received their COVID-19 vaccinations while rewarding those who have. All Maryland residents 18 and older who have received a COVID-19 shot at a non-Federal facility in Maryland at any time are automatically entered into daily drawings being held from May 25 through July 4.
Each day through July 3, one winner will receive a $40,000 prize, and the promotion culminates on the Fourth of July when one winner will receive a $400,000 prize.
