Metro Brief: DC Lottery Monopoly Millionaires’ Club names first $1,000,000 winner

District of Columbia

On December 15, 2014

Just Portables Trust of Orlando, Florida has claimed the first $1,000,000 prize awarded in the District of Columbia with the new Monopoly Millionaire’s Club.

Felix Alexander, a representative of the trust and the actual buyer of the ticket, was excited to be the first winner of the newly launched multi-state lottery game.

“I was in D.C. on business and thought I’d take a chance on the new game. I tried with another store, but was not able to purchase tickets. I guess it was just for me to buy that ticket at that store,” said Alexander, who operates the Florida-based computer tech company.

Launched in October 2014, Monopoly Millionaires’ Club is the nation’s newest multi-state jackpot game and features three ways to win: Top Prize, Millionaires’ Club prizes, and the chance to win $1,000,000 on the TV game show of the same name. The game is played in 22 states and the District.

“This is an exciting win for the DC Lottery,” said Executive Director Buddy Roogow. “This is our first big win with this game and we’re excited to help create more and more millionaires with the Monopoly Millionaires’ Club.”

The winning ticket is a Millionaires’ Club level winner and was purchased at Cathedral Liquors, located at 3000 Connecticut Ave., NW, for the game held on November 7, 2014. The winning numbers were: 27-1-12-11-9, Property #19 (B&O Railroad), and the Millionaires’ Club Number was DC 0003-001217.
