Baltimore Woman Claims $700,000 Prize
A nervous Maryland woman, accompanied by her dad, came to Lottery Headquarters this afternoon to claim her $700,000 Multi-Match jackpot prize. While the winning numbers were drawn on April 19th, a pre-planned trip to Disney World kept the woman from arriving sooner.
“I had already planned the trip, so I just had to wait,” said the grinning winner. The lucky lady gave the ticket to her father to keep in a safe while she was away. “I wasn’t scared about leaving the ticket because I knew it was in good hands.”
The 40-year-old Baltimore woman bought the ticket, as she usually does, after work on the day of the drawing. She realized she had won a few days later after casually scanning the ticket at a local Lottery retailer. Outside of sharing her excitement with her immediate family, the winner has kept her good fortune a secret.
The construction company employee said she is going to invest her winnings and purchase a new car. She also plans to help her family.
The winning ticket was purchased at Sterling Liquors located at 196 German Hill Rd. in Baltimore.
