Claims $40,000 prize from June 14 drawing
An anonymous Prince George’s County man claimed his $40,000 prize from the $2 Million VaxCash Promotion at Lottery Headquarters on June 16.
The winner, who was selected in the June 14 drawing, became eligible for the drawing after receiving the vaccine earlier this year. He told Lottery officials that he would like to use his prize towards a down payment on a house.
The VaxCash Promotion, announced by Governor Larry 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.
