— Someone who bought a Maryland Multi- Match lottery ticket at Landhope Farms Store in Port Deposit is $ 825,000 richer.
Monday night’s winning ticket — the third this year — was sold at the store on Jacob Tome Highway. Erica Palmisano, assistant director of communications for the Maryland Lottery, said the winner can take a lump sum payment of $ 525,000 or spread the winnings out with an annuity.
Multi-Match is a $2 game that replaced Lotto in 2006, said Carole Gentry, director of communications for Maryland Lottery and Gaming.
“It’s an in- state jackpot where you play 18 numbers,” Gentry said Tuesday. “If you get 6 of 6 in a single line you win the jackpot.”
The winning numbers drawn Monday night at 11: 22 p. m. were 02- 04- 1621- 27- 34.
Landhope Farms will receive a $ 1,000 bonus for selling that winning ticket, Gentry added.
Meanwhile, Palmisano said the clock is ticking on two $ 1 million winning tickets drawn in the Powerball and Mega Million games in January.
“One ticket was sold in Prince George’s County, the other in Dundalk,” she said, noting winners have 182 days to come forward.
Gentry has advice for whomever is holding that winning ticket.
“Sign the ticket and put it in a safe place,” she said.
Call Gentry to claim the prize at 410- 230- 8275 and don’t let the ticket expire.
“Unclaimed funds go back to the players in other lottery drawings or the second chance drawings,” she said.
