The Week in Winners: Powerball Delivers $200,000 Prize as Jackpot Rolls Into New Year

Lottery players across the state won $40.7 million during week ending Dec. 31

With the Powerball jackpot surging past $800 million as 2024 began, the game delivered the Maryland Lottery’s biggest prize of the past week.

On Dec. 30, in the final Powerball drawing of 2023, a lucky player in Prince George’s County won a third-tier prize of $50,000, and the winner added the Powerplay option to the ticket, which quadrupled the prize to $200,000. In the New Year’s Day Powerball drawing, a ticket sold in Michigan won an $842.4 million jackpot (cash value $425.2 million). It was the fifth-largest jackpot in Powerball history and 10th-largest in U.S. lottery history.

Meanwhile, the Multi-Match Christmas Day drawing produced a jackpot-winning ticket in Windsor Mill worth an estimated annuity value of $540,000, with an estimated cash option of $290,000.

All told, Maryland Lottery players won $40.7 million in prizes during the final seven days of 2023, including 39 tickets worth $10,000 or more.

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 redeem tickets up to and including $600. More information is available on the How To Claim page of
