Annapolis man claims prize from July 31 drawing
An Annapolis golfer has spent several weeks working with a financial planner, thanks to his hole-in-one play with the Maryland Lottery’s $500,000 Multi-Match jackpot.
The 72-year-old retiree took the cash option on the July 31 win, resulting in about $350,500 for the former sales executive to enjoy with his wife. The first-time winner is amazed at his luck.
“I probably have only spent about $20 on Lottery tickets my whole life,” said the father of two adult children. Had he not heard the person ahead of him in line at the Quick Save Mart in Annapolis, our happy winner would still be playing in the rough rather than on the green. He was buying a sandwich and cup of coffee when he heard the customer getting Lottery tickets. The Anne Arundel County resident followed suit, buying tickets for the Multi-Match and Powerball drawings and went on his way. About a week later, he thought to check the tickets.
To his surprise, every Multi-Match number on one line of his $2 ticket matched those in the drawing. He also matched nine numbers of 18 played on the ticket, which meant a $500 win. The novice player wasn’t sure what all this meant financially so he called the Lottery for assistance. That news sent him to a financial planner and the rest is history!
Our winner said he and his wife haven’t yet decided what to do with their prize but plan to keep quiet about it. He’s been happily retired for the last decade and plans to continue enjoying playing golf and running the household while his “better half” continues to work.
For selling the winning ticket, the retailer at 524 Defense Highway in Annapolis received a $1,000 bonus from the Maryland Lottery.

Ties for fifth largest win in game’s history
One lucky Lottery player received the best gift of all on Christmas by becoming Maryland’s newest multi-millionaire. A $2.85 million winning Multi-Match ticket from last night’s drawing was purchased in Waldorf.
The winner, who is the ninth to hit a Multi-Match jackpot in 2014, can choose between the annuity and a cash option of more than $2.2 million. The winning numbers were 2, 6, 13, 18, 23 and 24. The ticket was purchased at the Safeway store located at 10 King St in Waldorf. That retailer will receive a $2,850 bonus.
The winner has 182 days to claim the prize in person at Lottery headquarters at 1800 Washington Blvd. in Baltimore. It had been rolling since an Annapolis winner hit a $500,000 jackpot on July 31. The largest Multi-Match jackpot win ever was $4.8 million in 2009.
Multi-Match is a $2 in-state game. Players match between three and five numbers on any one line to win up to $1,000. Match between five and 18 numbers total on all three lines combined to win up to $2,000 more.To win the jackpot, players match all six numbers on any one line. In addition to the jackpot win, the drawing produced more than 35,000 winners between $2 and $2,000.
Watch the televised drawings at 11:22 p.m. Mondays and Thursdays on WBAL TV. Results also are available online at mdlottery.com and on your smart phone. Simply download the free MD Lottery app in the Apple and Android app stores.
Wins top-tier prize on Christmas Day
When Maryland’s newest multimillionaire came into Lottery headquarters to claim his $2.85 million Multi-Match prize, he had a feeling of déjà vu. Almost 10 years ago, the lucky Parkville resident walked through those same doors to claim another large prize.
“I was here in 2005 when I won a $250,000 second-tier Mega Millions prize,” he said with a smile. “It’s great to be back.”
This time, the 39-year-old is walking away with a lot more change in his pocket. The winner chose the cash option for the prize, which came to more than $2.2 million.
The truck driver has played Multi-Match since the game began and likes to buy his tickets at different stores along his route. Last week, he stopped for gas at a Safeway store in Waldorf and felt like that was a good location to purchase tickets for the Christmas Day drawing.
He didn’t realize he’d won for several days. On Friday morning, he went online to mdlottery.com and saw that somebody hit the jackpot. He didn’t think much more about it. Later that day, he saw that the winning ticket was sold in Waldorf.
“I still didn’t think much of it until Saturday morning, when I saw that it was sold at the Safeway store,” he told Lottery officials. “That’s when I checked my numbers and realized that I was the winner!”
The last time he won, the father of two sons and his wife put a down payment on a house. With the Multi-Match prize, they plan to pay off the house, take a vacation and save for their children. The lucky Safeway store. located at 10 King Street in Waldorf, will receive a $2,850 bonus for selling the top-tier ticket.
This was the ninth Multi-Match jackpot in 2014. This jackpot began rolling after an Annapolis winner hit a $500,000 jackpot on July 31. The largest Multi-Match jackpot win ever was $4.8 million in 2009.

In-state lotto-style game offers stronger odds than Powerball, Mega Millions
If you enjoy lottery games and are looking for a good reason to play the Maryland Lottery’s Multi-Match, there are 2.35 million of them waiting to be found. That’s the estimated jackpot of the next Multi-Match drawing, scheduled for 11:22 p.m. tonight.
While the $2.35 million Multi-Match jackpot is significantly less than the Mega Millions and Powerball jackpots, the odds of winning in Multi-Match are substantially better. A look at the overall chances of winning each game tells the story:
Overall Probability to Win
Multi-Match: 1 in 8.5
Mega Millions: 1 in 14.71
Powerball: 1 in 31.85
Multi-Match tickets are $2 and give players four ways to win. Start by selecting one line of six numbers or choose the Quick Pick option to have your first six numbers randomly selected. Players also receive two additional lines of six randomly selected numbers. Each line provides a chance to win, and there’s a fourth chance by combining the matches in all three lines. Six numbers from 1 to 43 will be drawn. If you match three, four or five numbers on any single line, your ticket pays up to $1,000. Matching 5 to 18 numbers total on all three lines combined pays up to another $2,000. Matching all six numbers on a single line pays the jackpot.
Multi-Match tickets are available at more than 4,500 Maryland Lottery retailers across the state. To find a retailer in your area, visit our Retailer Locator. Multi-Match drawings are held Monday and Thursday nights and tickets may be purchased until 11:17 p.m. the night of each drawing.
