Ocean City Man Wins $30,000 with Mega Millions Subscription

Megaplier option delivers big prize in April 24 drawing

When “Woody J” of Ocean City gets a phone call from the Maryland Lottery, he’s one happy guy.

That call means this longtime Mega Millions subscriber has won another big prize! His latest caller from the Maryland Lottery delivered news that “Woody J” was one of two Marylanders to win big in the April 24 drawing. His prize was $30,000!

“I pray for the phone call,” the retiree said with a laugh. He’s won $20 to $200 in the past but this is the first time he’s matched four white balls and the Mega Ball. This lucky player also added the Megaplier to his subscription. The 3x multiplier in the drawing gave him $30,000 while Maryland’s other big winner in that drawing — who also matched four white balls and the Mega Ball — walked away with $10,000.

Being “all in” paid off again for this uncle of two! He has subscribed to the game through the Maryland Lottery for more than 10 years.

The happy Lottery enthusiast enjoys having a subscription because he doesn’t have to worry about buying tickets for every drawing. “It is so much easier,” the Worcester County resident said, adding that he plans to pay bills with his prize and share some of the windfall with his church. He’s also keeping the lucky win a secret from everyone but his family. The nickname “Woody J” will let some key folks in his life know he was the happy winner who nabbed the big prize!
