$200,000 Second-Tier Powerball Ticket sold in Frederick CountyThursday, November 3rd, 2011
$245 Million Jackpot Ticket sold in Connecticut
One lucky Maryland Lottery player is $200,000 richer, thanks to last night’s Powerball drawing. Although the $245 million jackpot was hit in Connecticut, a Frederick County retailer sold a second-tier $200,000 ticket. Players who bought Powerball at Green Valley Wine & Spirits in Monrovia should check their tickets. The winning numbers are 12, 14, 34, 39, 46 and Power Ball 36. To win the $200,000, a player must match all five numbers, only missing the Power Ball.
Frederick County has been pretty lucky in the past few months. In July, Gary Smith from Monrovia, won a $50,000 Instant Riches scratch-off top prize. That ticket was purchased at the 7-11 in Monrovia. And, just last month, Bruce Bowers from Frederick, won a trip with the Ravens through the Lottery’s Ravens Cash Fantasy Internet promotion.
Powerball has also had a lucky streak, producing many winners in Maryland this year, including the state’s first jackpot win on September 7th. A Harford County couple won $108.8 million on a ticket purchased at Wine World in Abingdon. Maryland has now had 12 second-tier $200,000 Powerball winners in 2011. In addition to last night’s win, another $200,000 ticket remains unclaimed. That Powerball ticket was sold on May 28, 2011 at 7-11 in Clinton. Winners have 182 days to claim their prizes.
The Powerball drawing can be seen on Wednesday and Saturday evenings at 11:22 p.m. on WBAL-TV, Channel 11. The drawings are later rebroadcast on Maryland Public Television. Visit mdlottery.com for drawing times.
