Twenty-nine $40,000 prizes and one $400,000 prize still to be awarded
The $40,000 winners in the $2 Million VaxCash Promotion continue to eagerly claim their prizes. On June 4, the Baltimore City resident who was the winner in the May 26 drawing, and the June 3 winner from Clarksburg (Montgomery County) visited Lottery Headquarters to claim. Both winners chose to remain anonymous.
The VaxCash Promotion, announced by Governor Hogan on May 20, is a collaboration of the Maryland Lottery and the Maryland Department of Health (MDH), 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 the 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.
