Player bought lucky ticket in Wednesday’s drawing
Adding the Power Play multiplier option to a Powerball ticket tripled the third-tier win for a lucky player in the Wednesday, Feb. 24 drawing.
The Maryland Lottery is looking for the lucky player who bought the $150,000-winning ticket at Wawa #559 located at 3530 Conowingo Road in Street. The winning numbers were 4, 33, 43, 53 and 65; the Powerball was 21 and the Power Play multiplier x3. Our winner was one of a dozen players nationwide who won a third-tier prize in the Feb. 24 drawing.
Lottery officials encourage the big winner to sign the back of the ticket immediately and put it in a safe location. Winners typically get 182 days from the date of the drawing to claim prizes. However, the Lottery has temporarily extended claiming deadlines due to Maryland’s COVID-19 state of emergency.
The $150,000 winner can claim the prize by mail or in person by appointment at the Lottery headquarters’ Customer Resource Center located at 1800 Washington Blvd. in Baltimore. Maryland’s 13,051 other winners of smaller prizes in the drawing can claim them by mail, at Lottery retailers, at casinos or by appointment at Lottery headquarters.
