Lotto jackpot glitters even brighter
The jackpot for Wednesday's Maryland Lotto drawing is expected to climb to $15 million -- one of the largest in state lottery history -- because of a recent run of bad luck for would-be millionaires playing the semiweekly game.
With no jackpot winner in recent weeks, the projected top prize -- for a single winner, a before-tax annuity worth $750,000 a year for 20 years -- may match the second-largest ever in Maryland, according to lottery spokesman Carroll H. Hynson Jr.
Although 3.6 million tickets were sold for Saturday night's $12 million drawing, none matched the winning numbers of 6-14-15-36-42-49. Lottery officials said 131 tickets matched five of the numbers to win $1,146 each, while 6,834 tickets matched four of the numbers to win $37 each.
The biggest single Lotto winner in state history was David K. Moreland, a Lothian resident whose subscription ticket won him $21,077,616 last August -- which before taxes worked out to be just over $1 million a year for 20 years.
