Maryland has its first Powerball lottery jackpot winner

PowerballPowerball: Maryland has its first Powerball lottery jackpot winner

Update (10:37 am):  Retailer location and commission.

By Todd Northrop

For the first time since Powerball lottery tickets went on sale in Maryland in Jan. 2010, a ticket sold in the state of Maryland won the Powerball jackpot.

The winning ticket, sold at Wine World on Constant Friendship Boulevard in the town of Abingdon, in Harford County, is worth $108.8 million, or $65 million as a lump-sum cash payout.  The winner also faces withholdings of 25% for federal taxes and 9.25% for Maryland state taxes.

After tax withholdings, the winner can expect a net payout of around $43 million if they choose the cash option, according to USA Mega's Powerball Jackpot Analysis.

For selling the winning ticket, Wine World will earn a commission of $25,000, Lottery officials said.

The winning numbers for the Sept. 7 Powerball drawing were 3, 5, 18, 27, and 54, with Powerball number 13.  The Power Play number was 4.

Aside from the Maryland jackpot winner, another five players matched the first 5 numbers for a $200,000 second-prize win: 1 from Georgia, 1 from New Jersey, 2 from Pennsylvania, and 1 from Wisconsin.  Three of those winners — 1 each from the states of Georgia, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin — also played the Power Play option for an extra $1 per ticket, and will have their prizes elevated to $1 million.

An additional 51 players matched 4 of 5 numbers plus the Powerball number to win $10,000.  Seven of those winners also played the Power Play option, increasing their prizes to $40,000.

Abingdon, Maryland, is a small unincorporated community located 25 miles northeast of Baltimore.  It was named after Abingdon, England, and was founded by and is the birthplace of William Paca, a signer of the Declaration of Independence and the third Governor of Maryland.

Now Abingdon will also be known as the town where Maryland's first Powerball jackpot was sold, and perhaps home to a new millionaire.

                  I was just saying that we were due for a boozer to win a big Jackpot.

                  So you can imagine how elated I was to hear the winning ticket was sold at Wine World.

                  They don't call me the Oracle of the Appalachians for nothing.

                  Finally, an avowed boozer wins!   Hurray!

                    Yes I salute the Maryland Winner.  I am so happy for him/her/them.  Lol!!!  Im also thrilled for Md. to finally, finally, finally win the Powerball.

                    I did win on three tickets a total of $14.  But, I would like to be planning on the $43,000,000.

                     

                    Yay Maryland.

                        Good for the winner!

                        And of course for all those saying 'Why Maryland, who not _ _ _ _ _ _', or 'why them, why not me', it's Whine World!

                        Sad Cheers

                        Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

                        Lep

                        There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.
