Player bought top-prize ticket at US Fuel
Who is $50,000 richer? The Maryland Lottery is hoping to find out soon! Someone bought a Bonus Match 5 ticket at US Fuel in Berwyn Heights for the Thursday, Nov. 30 drawing and won $50,000.
The winning numbers to match were 4, 17, 23, 28 and 39; the Bonus Ball was 12. Lottery officials urge the winner to sign the back of the ticket and put it in a safe place. The player has 182 days to claim the prize and must come in person to Lottery headquarters at 1800 Washington Blvd. in Baltimore.
The Prince George’s County retailer also has reason to celebrate. The business earns a $500 bonus from the Lottery for making the winning sale. US Fuel is located at 5901 Greenbelt Road in Berwyn Heights.
Bonus Match 5 drawings take place seven days a week. Players select five numbers ranging from 1 to 39. The Bonus Ball drawn from the remaining 34 numbers provides extra chances to win. Your ticket is a winner if you match five, four or three of the original five winning numbers selected in the drawing. If you match the Bonus Ball number, you only need to match four, three or two of your original numbers to win!
