— Some­one who bought a Mary­land Multi- Match lot­tery ticket at Land­hope Farms Store in Port De­posit is $ 825,000 richer.

BALTIMORE

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.
