Monster jackpots are bewitching Maryland players this Halloween weekend

Mega Millions at $140 million; Powerball at $78 million; and Multi-Match at $2.6 million

Maryland Lottery jackpot games are brewing excitement throughout the state this weekend.  Tonight’s Mega Millions jackpot is $140 million, tomorrow’s Powerball jackpot is $87 million and Monday’s Multi-Match jackpot has reached $2.6 million.

“Three big jackpots in four days create a certain buzz in the air for lottery players,” explained Lottery Communications Director Carole Everett.  We see that excitement in a very tangible way; our agents report a significant increase in sales.”

While the odds are long for winning the top prize on multi-state jackpot games, many players regularly win second and third-tier prizes.  This year, for example, twenty one Marylanders won Mega Millions’ $250,000 second-tier prize and seven have won Powerball’s $200,000 second-tier prize.  Players can now maximize payouts on non-jackpot winnings by utilizing Powerball’s PowerPlay and the new Megaplier option on Mega Millions.

The Mega Millions drawing can be seen tonight on WBAL-TV, Channel 11.  Also on Channel 11 is tomorrow’s Powerball drawing and Monday’s Multi-Match drawing.  All drawings take place at 11:22 pm.
