Maryland Powerball Winners Claim $108,800,000 Prize
Tuesday, September 13th, an Abingdon couple strolled into the Maryland Lottery Headquarters to claim their prize of almost $109,000,000. They're still deciding whether or not to disclose their identities and tell the world who they are. Many well-wishers on the official lottery site encouraged them to keep their identities hidden, and to seek financial counsel.
The couple were the only winners in the September 7th drawing. Their Powerball winning numbers were 3, 5, 18, 27, 54, the Powerball was 13, and the PowerPlay number was X 4. There is no indication whether the Maryland Powerball winners will choose the annuity paid out in 30 annual payments, or take a one-time cash payment of $65,000,000 before taxes.
Wine World, located at 406-A Constant Friendship Blvd. in Abingdon, Maryland sold the winning ticket to the happy couple. Not only are the lottery winners thrilled, but Wine World will also receive a whopping $25,000 prize. Are you envious? What do you think they'll do with all that money? Buy a new house, a fancy car, or go on a cruise? With that much money, the sky's the limit!
