MARYLAND MULTI-MATCH FAN WINS BIG LOTTERY PRIZE WORTH $700,000
A big fan of Maryland’s Multi-Match lottery is an even bigger fan of it now that she’s won a huge $700,000 jackpot prize.
Linda Cleveland, from Frederick in Maryland, has wonthe third jackpot of this year on the Multi-Match lottery, where her ticket for the June 4th drawing matched the required numbers. Ms Cleveland said that she has a regular routine when it comes to buying lottery tickets, and on June 4th she stopped in at Festival Major Liquors in Frederick to buy her tickets for the Multi-Match drawings on June 4th and June 7th. Recently a long-time Maryland Lottery player became a $28,000 winner thanks to a brand-new game.
It wasn’t until a week later that Ms Cleveland checked her tickets while fulfilling her regular routine yet again, scanning her tickets at the same store and buying more for the week ahead. The Multi-Match fan said that she rarely watched the drawings live, instead choosing to check the tickets herself later. Earlier this year we told you about a man from Gaithersburg in Maryland who won a Multi-Match jackpot thanks to his own birthday, and a woman from Baltimore County who took weeks to check her $775,000 winning Multi-Match lottery ticket.
“I scanned the ticket and it said it was a winner, but I thought, ‘This can’t be right,’” Ms Cleveland said, adding that she handed her Multi-Match ticket to the cashier who scanned it as well, and confirmed that she’d won $700,000. The lucky Maryland Lottery ticket works as a cancer research biologist, and she told lottery officials that she feels she is floating on cloud nine. A Maryland Lottery winner who confessed to being an occasional player became a big fan after his $20,000 scratch card prize.
“When I checked the website and read the press release about the winning ticket being sold in Frederick, I just couldn’t believe it was talking about me,” the Multi-Match winner said. She has shared her good news with her sister but decided not to share it with her other siblings until the money was claimed.
The lucky jackpot winner plans to buy a new car and UPDATE /*internal:DB*/MyISAM_lottery24com_wp.`wp_posts`/*END*/ kitchen with her $700,000 winnings, which she took as a lump sum payment. A Lotto Max winner from British Columbia in Canada also planned a new kitchen with his $25.9 million jackpot.
