$11 million jackpot has a single winner
A lot of people came close, but only one person appeared to be the winner in Saturday's Maryland Lotto drawing -- with an $11 million prize that will be the second-richest solo payoff in the game's history.
The single winning ticket was purchased last week at a Washington County convenience store, according to Carroll H. Hynson Jr., a spokesman for the Maryland Lottery. Whoever bought it stands to receive 20 annual payments of $550,000 before taxes.
Two hundred tickets matched five of the six Lotto numbers, and each is worth $727. Another 7,882 tickets matched four of the numbers, to win $31 each.
The largest single Lotto winner since the game was launched in 1983 was Bruce Lancaster, who claimed a $12 million prize last year.
