A 66-year-old woman from Sharpsburg is Washington County’s latest lottery jackpot winner.
The woman claimed a $625,000 Multi-Match jackpot Friday, according to a press release from the Maryland Lottery. She correctly matched all six numbers in the Feb. 11 drawing.
“I found out I won late Monday night when my twin sons woke me up with the news,” the woman said in the release. “They came knocking on my door screaming that I had hit the jackpot.”
The woman’s sons checked her ticket online and saw that all her numbers matched. The mother of six and grandmother of one called a family meeting the next night to share the good news.
The Weis Market employee said she is grateful for her win and will share the winnings with her family and pay off some bills. Her son said she will invest some of the winnings for her retirement.
The winning ticket was purchased at Boonsboro Exxon at 719 N. Main St. in Boonsboro.
This is the second Multi-Match jackpot win in Western Maryland in recent weeks. A Hagerstown man claimed a $575,000 jackpot win on Jan. 25.
