REISTERTOWN — A $99,978 lottery winning ticket has been sold at a Reistertown convenience store.
The winning ticket was purchased at Dash In located at 30 Main Street in Reisterstown.
This is the biggest winning ticket ever sold by the Baltimore County store and the second progressive-top-prize-winning ticket sold in the Payday game, which launched on June 15.
There are 18 progressive top prizes remaining in the game.
The retailer will earn a $999.78 bonus from the Lottery for selling the lucky ticket. The bonus is equal to 1 percent of the prize.
Lottery officials recommend the winner sign the back of the ticket and keep it in a safe place until claiming the prize.
Winners typically get 182 days to claim prizes. However, the Lottery has temporarily extended claiming deadlines due to Maryland’s COVID-19 state of emergency.
