Player added Power Play to lucky ticket in Monday drawing
While no one in Maryland won the $699.8 million Powerball jackpot in Monday night’s drawing, one lucky ticket purchased at a Columbia 7-Eleven is worth $100,000. Adding Power Play to the ticket doubled the third-tier prize.
Maryland had 48,121 winners of prizes ranging from $4 to $100,000 in the drawing. The jackpot, won with a ticket sold in California, ranked as the fifth-largest in the Powerball history and the seventh-largest in U.S. lottery history.
Check your tickets for the winning numbers: 12, 22, 54, 66 and 69; the Powerball was 15 and the Power Play multiplier x2. The Howard County store that sold the $100,000-winning ticket is 7-Eleven #11704 located at 5740 Columbia Road in Columbia.
Lottery officials encourage all winners to sign the backs of their tickets immediately and put them in a safe location. They get 182 days from the date of the drawing to claim their prizes.
