A $2.1 million winning lottery ticket was sold at a Safeway in Westminster, the Maryland Lottery said.
The winner purchased the Multi-Match ticket at the store in the 400 block of WMC Drive, which will also receive a $2,100 bonus. The winner can also choose between the $2.1 million annuity or an estimated $1.7 million cash option.
This is the first Multi-Match jackpot win of 2016. The jackpot was last hit on Nov. 9, 2015, when an anonymous winner who purchased his tickets via subscription took home a $2.6 million jackpot.
The largest Multi-Match jackpot ever was $4.8 million on Sept. 19, 2009, claimed by two anonymous Dundalk residents, the lottery said.
Multi-Match is a $2 game. The Lottery draws six numbers from 1 to 43 every Monday and Thursday night. To win the jackpot, players match all six numbers on any one line.
