Multi-Match Jackpot Win Gives Retiree a Financial Boost

Howard County man claims $550,000 prize

A Multi-Match quick-pick ticket covering four drawings just made an Elkridge man the winner of Maryland’s fourth Multi-Match jackpot of 2023. The lucky player won $550,000.

The Howard County resident bought the ticket at Royal Farms #054 located at 8268 Lark Brown Drive in Elkridge. The ticket matched six numbers on a single line to give the retiree a jackpot win in the July 6 drawing. The happy player plans to buy a house with his prize.

His lucky Lottery retailer received a $1,000 bonus for its role in selling a jackpot-winning Multi-Match ticket.
