Express Mart in Bowie sells top-prize winning ticket
A lucky Bonus Match 5 player ended the Presidents’ Day weekend with a $50,000 top-prize win, courtesy of a lucky ticket purchased at Express Mart in Bowie.
The Maryland Lottery is looking for the player who bought a ticket for the Monday, Feb. 17 drawing with the winning numbers of 2, 5, 18, 23 and 32; the Bonus Ball was 21.
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. This is our third winning Bonus Match 5 ticket of 2020.
The Prince George’s County retailer also has reason to celebrate! The Lottery will give the lucky store located at 15709 Hall Road a bonus of $500 for selling a top-prize winning ticket in the game. Express Mart has sold 11 winning tickets of $10,000 or more from 2018 to 2020, including two $50,000 winning Powerball tickets, a $21,135 winning Racetrax ticket and a $20,200 2020 Cash scratch-off.
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.
