May 3 drawing produces game’s third jackpot in 2021

The Monday, May 3 Multi-Match drawing was a lucky one for one Maryland Lottery player, who won a $520,000 jackpot.

The winner, who is the third player to hit a Multi-Match jackpot in 2021, can choose between the estimated annuity of $520,000 and an estimated $270,000 cash option (before taxes). The Anne Arundel County resident matched all six of the winning numbers on a single line: 11, 17, 18, 21, 31 and 34.

A Rockville resident won a $1.4 million jackpot hit on April 22. The player claimed the prize last week, taking the $1.1 million cash option on the ticket sold at Giant #319 in Rockville.

The May 3 jackpot winner will have 182 days to claim the prize at Lottery headquarters located at 1800 Washington Blvd. in Baltimore.
