One man's jackpot is the state's misfortune.
More people have hit it big in Maryland's Pick 3 and Pick 4 drawings, according to this story by statehouse reporter Laura Smitherman.
What could be bad about that, especially in these economic times?
Well, Maryland Lottery revenues are now $27 million below projections since July as a result.
And the lottery is the state's third largest source of operating revenue, according to Laura's story.
