Maryland Lottery looking for lucky winner
We have another millionaire in Maryland! Some lucky shopper bought a Powerball ticket worth $1 million at the Harwood Convenience Shop in Elkridge.
The Maryland Lottery is looking for this winner, who correctly matched five balls for the Saturday, Dec. 7 drawing to win the $1 million second-tier prize. Check your ticket to see if you have these winning numbers: 13-20-32-45-48 and 17. The winner has 182 days after the drawing to claim the prize at Maryland Lottery headquarters at 1800 Washington Blvd. in Baltimore.
No one won the Powerball jackpot so it rolled to $122 million with a cash option of $67.9 million for the Dec. 11 drawing. Five players in Florida, Massachusetts, Maryland, Michigan and Texas matched five numbers Saturday night to win the second-tier prize.
Maryland is definitely a lucky Powerball state. The number of Maryland Powerball millionaires continues to grow. In 2013, 12 players (including this winner) won the second-tier prize. Powerball jackpot wins in the state occur less often. Marylanders won two Powerball jackpots in 2011.
The convenience store, located at 6641 Washington Blvd. in Elkridge, will receive $2,500 for selling the winning ticket.
Powerball drawings take place on Wednesday and Saturday nights. The game is sold in 45 states and jurisdictions. Players can watch the drawings at 11:22 p.m. Wednesdays and Saturdays on WBAL-TV 11. The drawing and winning numbers are posted at www.mdlottery.com, available on your phone by downloading the Lottery’s new free mobile app and at retailers.
