The Marylanders, along with 108 other participants from lotteries across the country, were playing for the chance to win up to $1 million. Although no Maryland Lottery winner became a millionaire, all four came home with a little extra money in their pockets.
The four Maryland winners and their prizes won are as follows:
- Asam Mushtaq from Nottingham (Baltimore County) won $25,350
- Tara Tucker from Riverside (Harford County) won $13,250
- Bertha Woodland from Upper Marlboro (Prince George’s County) won $13,900 (Bertha’s son Chauncey participated on her behalf as a proxy)
- Bonita Mitchell from Baltimore City won $9,975
Mushtaq called the trip “a wonderful experience.”
“Everything about my trip was great,” he said. “I am glad I got to take part in the opportunity to win $1 million, and I’m thankful for my winnings.”
Tucker said she is looking forward to using her prize to get a sunroof in her car and will also add to her savings.
“The whole production from start to finish was completely amazing,” Tucker said.
The trip took place July 10-14, 2021. In addition to the cash prizes won at the event, each participant received round-trip airfare for two to Las Vegas, deluxe hotel accommodations for four nights, $1,000 spending money and the opportunity to play in the JAMES BOND Lottery Challenge.
