Players across Maryland won or claimed $28.4 million during the week ending Dec. 27
A pair of $50,000 prizes on Bonus Match 5 and Powerball and a half-dozen big Racetrax wins highlighted the holiday season for Maryland Lottery players.
The Dec. 24 Bonus Match 5 drawing and the Dec. 26 Powerball drawing each produced a $50,000 prize. Meanwhile, six Racetrax players won prizes of more than $14,000 last week, four of whom landed their big wins on a 9-10-11 Trifecta that hit on Dec. 24. One of those Trifecta winners added the Bonus option, tripling the base prize because the race had a 3X Bonus multiplier.
In all, Lottery players won or claimed nearly $28.4 million in the seven days ending Dec. 27, including 20 tickets worth $10,000 or more that were either sold or claimed during that span.
The Maryland Lottery Claims Center in Baltimore is closed until Jan. 4 as part of the State of Maryland’s COVID-19 mitigation efforts. The Claims Center will reopen by appointment only on Jan. 4.

All Lottery retailers are authorized to cash winning tickets up to $600, and approximately 400 Expanded Cashing Authority Program (XCAP) retailers are authorized to cash tickets valued up to $5,000. Prizes up to and including $25,000 can be claimed at any of Maryland’s six casinos with no appointment necessary. Prizes of $25,001 or more must be claimed by appointment at the Lottery Claims Center in Baltimore. More information is available on the How To Claim page of mdlottery.com.
