Sizeable payouts remain for last week’s big Powerball drawing
While most Maryland Powerball players had their sights set on the $587.5 million jackpot last week, eleven tickets bought in the state won significant second and third-tier prizes. These Powerball players may not be Maryland’s newest multi-millionaires, but they are certainly several thousand dollars richer.
Notably, ten Marylanders won the third-tier $10,000 prize during last week’s huge Powerball drawing. Maryland’s second-tier winner, Almerta Williams from Edgewood, took home $2 million last week after she matched five out of the six numbers drawn and doubled her prize by choosing the Power Play option.
New or infrequent players often try their luck when the jackpot reaches such a seemingly insurmountable sum, but many are not aware of the other prize levels available. “It’s important for players to check their tickets before throwing them away,” said Maryland Lottery Director of Communications Carole Everett. “There are plenty of other prizes beside the jackpot which are still substantial.”
The winning third-tier tickets purchased in Maryland came from Baltimore City, Baltimore, Calvert, Montgomery, Prince George’s, St. Mary’s and Washington counties. Three tickets; one from Baltimore City, Montgomery and Prince George’s counties have yet to be claimed by the ticket holders. Players have 182 days from the drawing date to redeem their prizes.
