Maryland Lottery: Winners Claimed $31 Million in One Week

Maryland Lottery: Winners Claimed $31 Million

Players across Maryland won or claimed a total of $31 million during the week ending Jan. 3

(STL.News) As the Mega Millions and Powerball jackpots both rolled to more than $400 million last week, five players in Maryland celebrated New Year’s weekend with Mega Millions and Powerball prizes ranging from $10,000 to $50,000.

Powerball tickets worth $50,000 each were sold in Lanham and Columbia, while Mega Millions tickets worth $10,000 to $50,000 were sold in College Park, Hyattsville and Parkville.

The estimated annuity jackpot for the next Mega Millions drawing on Jan. 5 is $447 million, the 10th-largest in the game’s history, while the estimated Powerball jackpot for the Jan. 6 drawing is $410 million.  It is the first time since October 2018 that both games have simultaneously had jackpots valued at more than $400 million.

Meanwhile, the Lottery’s biggest win of the past week was a FAST PLAY Lucky Numbers ticket worth $112,776 sold in Baltimore.

In all, Lottery players won or claimed nearly $31 million in the seven days ending Jan. 3, including 23 tickets worth $10,000 or more that were either sold or claimed during that span.

Winners of prizes larger than $25,000 must redeem their tickets at the Maryland Lottery Claims Center in Baltimore, which is open by appointment only.  The Claims Center was closed to the public for the last two weeks of December before reopening on Jan. 4.

All Lottery retailers are authorized to cash winning tickets up to $600, and approximately 400 Expanded Cashing Authority Program (XCAP) retailers are authorized to cash tickets valued up to $5,000.  Prizes up to and including $25,000 can be claimed at any of Maryland’s six casinos with no appointment necessary.  More information is available on the How To Claim page of mdlottery.com.
