BALTIMORE — The Maryland Lottery's VaxCash 2.0 promotion has officially kicked off.

A lucky 71-year-old woman from Dundalk, who wished to remain anonymous, took home the first prize of $500,000.

For the next 10 Tuesdays, one Maryland resident who has been boosted will be randomly selected to win $50,000.

Then in the 12th and final week, a $1 million grand prize will be awarded.

To qualify, you must be a Maryland resident 18 and older, and have received all of your COVID-19 shots, including booster, in Maryland.

Anyone who received their booster by February 14 is automatically eligible.

The new VAXCASH venture follows a similar campaign the state ran last summer.
