In celebration of reaching the $1 billion prize payout milestone, the Maryland Lottery is awarding over $2.4 million more during the Cash Extravaganza promotion. During the first week of the month-long promotion, 721 Lottery players were randomly selected to win cash prizes.  Each day this month, 100 winners will receive prizes between $100 and $600.  Two winners will also be chosen each day to receive from $2,500 up to $10,000 with prize amounts determined during the Lottery’s Pick 3/ Pick 4 evening drawings.  The first week’s two daily winners include:

  • Pamela Price-Murray from Baltimore, John Hoffman from Marriottsville, Audrey Millner from Capitol Heights, and Charles Carter from Gwynn Oak each won $10,000;
  • Linda Vines from Laurel, Joyce Blains from Capitol Heights, Charles Atkins from Waldorf, and Terrence Ross from Hyattsville each won $7,500;
  • Logan Martin from Lanham and Frank Sorrentino from Beltsville each won $5,000; and
  • Gilbert Young from Baltimore, Thomas Hicks from Baltimore, Hobert Hanson from Waldorf, and Herbert Ratclif from Forest Hill each won $2,500.

One finalist will be drawn each day, for a total of 30, to be entered into the Cash Extravaganza Grand Prize drawing at the end of the promotion for the chance to win $1 million.  Last week’s finalists include: Amadu Bah from Bowie, Glenn Makovsky from Denton, James Griffin from Springdale, Judy Kelly from Pasadena, Jerrell Reddick from Washington, DC, Pamela Duffy from Capitol Heights, and George Dennison from Baltimore.
