Second Multi-Match Jackpot Hit in Past Month
More than 529,000 Multi-Match tickets were sold for last night’s drawing, but only one matched all six numbers on one line to strike it rich.. The jackpot was worth $700,000, with a cash option of $450,000. The winner, yet to be identified, purchased the ticket at Sterling Liquors, located at 196 German Hill Rd. in Dundalk.
Just last month, John Obradovic from Severna Park won a $4.45 million Multi-Match jackpot. That win was the second-largest in Multi-Match history. Back in September 2009, two co-workers claimed a $4.8 million Multi-Match jackpot, the largest since the game’s inception.
As suggested by its name, there are multiple ways to win with Multi-Match. Players may win by matching 3, 4 or 5 numbers on any one line, or by matching 5 to 18 numbers on all three lines combined. To win the jackpot, players must match all six numbers on one line. The Multi-Match jackpot starts at $500,000 and rises every time the large prize isn’t won. Multi-Match drawings can be seen on WBAL-TV Channel 11 on Mondays and Thursdays at 11:22 pm.
