The Week in Winners: Big Prizes in Cash4Life, Powerball Lead the Way on Lottery Winners’ List

Players across Maryland won nearly $38.2 million during week ending Dec. 26

A Cash4Life ticket sold Christmas Eve in North East delivered $1,000 a week for life to a lucky Maryland Lottery player. Meanwhile, the surging Powerball jackpot continued to generate big prizes across the state last week, including a $1 million win on a ticket sold in Takoma Park.

The Cash4Life ticket sold in Cecil County for the Dec. 24 drawing gives the winner a choice between $1,000 a week for life, paid in annual installments of $52,000, or a one-time payment of $1 million.

The $1 million Powerball ticket sold in Montgomery County for the Dec. 20 drawing delivered one of six big Powerball prizes in Maryland last week as the jackpot climbed to an estimated annuity value of $416 million for the Dec. 27 drawing ($299.5 million estimated cash option). Five other Powerball tickets, each worth $50,000, were sold in Baltimore, Bowie, Ellerslie, Hyattsville and Trappe.

In all, 22 players across the state won or claimed prizes of $10,000 or more, and the Lottery paid nearly $38.2 million in prizes in the seven days ending Dec. 26.

Winners of prizes larger than $25,000 must redeem their tickets at the Maryland Lottery Claims Center in Baltimore, which is open by appointment only. Prizes of up to $5,000 can be claimed at any of more than 400 Expanded Cashing Authority Program (XCAP) locations. All Maryland Lottery retailers are authorized to cash tickets up to and including $600. More information is available on the How To Claim page of
