Claims prize from Sept. 1 Multi-Match drawing
Every Monday and Thursday, a Washington, D.C. woman makes a trip across state lines to visit a Maryland Lottery retailer. She told Lottery officials that she will occasionally buy a Multi-Match ticket before going to work. Her decision to buy a ticket for the Sept. 1 drawing and a lot of Lottery luck earned her a $530,000 jackpot prize.
The 65-year old bought her winning $10 ticket at State Line Market located at 7817 Eastern Avenue in Silver Spring. She works an overnight shift and was well awake following the 11:22 pm Multi-Match drawing. Around 11:45 p.m., the lucky lady took a break and went out to her car to check her ticket.
“I started counting all of the matches on the different lines, and when I got to line “D,” I was speechless,” the winner said. She kept her cool because she knew she had to return to work. When she claimed her prize at Lottery headquarters in Baltimore, the winner said she is still considering options for enjoying the windfall.
Her lucky retailer, State Line Market in Montgomery County, also shares in the fun of her jackpot win. The business receives a $1,000 bonus from the Lottery for selling the winning ticket.
This marks the third time a Multi-Match jackpot has been hit in 2022.
