Prince George’s County Resident Claims $40,000 VaxCash Prize

Winner from June 9 drawing steps forward

An anonymous Prince George’s County man visited Lottery Headquarters on June 14, less than a week after learning he had won $40,000 in the $2 Million VaxCash Promotion.

The Prince George’s County resident, became eligible for the prize drawing after receiving the vaccine earlier this year. With his selection on June 9, he became Maryland’s 16th VaxCash winner.

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.
