One look at the man’s face and Lottery officials knew that the Hagerstown man didn’t believe what was happening to him. Despite filling out all of the claims paperwork, he couldn’t grasp how his day had turned out. The disabled Army Veteran had won the $575,000 Multi-Match top-tier prize.
Earlier in the day, the man had joked about possibly being the winner of the Multi-Match jackpot that he knew had been sold by a Hagerstown retailer. “I had several tickets,” he told officials. “And I did get them from that store, but never for a moment did I think it was me who actually won.”
He visited the lucky store and froze in place when he realized that one of his tickets matched all six winning numbers. “I was in complete shock,” he said. “I’ve enjoyed playing Multi-Match over the years, but now it’s my absolute favorite game!”
That lucky store, Roxy Liquors at 761 E. Wilson Boulevard in Hagerstown, will continue to see our winner on a regular basis purchasing Lottery tickets. The retailer that sold the ticket will receive a bonus of $1,000.
