Jackpot rolls, four states have second-tier winners
Are you our new Powerball millionaire? The Maryland Lottery is seeking the person who bought a winning second-tier ticket worth $1 million for the Saturday, Aug. 2 drawing. Check your numbers if you bought your ticket at Acme Markets at 201 Marlboro Avenue in Easton.
Maryland was one of four states with second-tier winners, joining Illinois, Virginia and West Virginia. No one won the jackpot, which rolled to $80 million with a $48 million cash option for the Wednesday, Aug. 6 drawing. The lucky ticket matched all five white balls, missing only the Power Ball number. The winning numbers are 12, 26, 44, 46, 47 and Power Ball 29. This latest $1 million win is the ninth second-tier Powerball win in Maryland this year. The July 16 second-tier winning ticket bought at Tucker’s Liquors in Clinton is still unclaimed.
For selling the ticket, the retailer receives a $2,500 bonus. The winner has 182 days to claim the prize in person at Lottery headquarters, located at 1800 Washington Blvd. in Baltimore.
