Player bought lucky ticket in Saturday’s drawing
Check your Powerball tickets from the Saturday, April 23 drawing, Maryland! Even though no one hit the jackpot, a Marylander bought a $50,000-winning ticket in the Double Play drawing.
The lucky player visited Giant #348 located at 6050 Daybreak Circle in Clarksville. The winning numbers to match in the Double Play drawing were 2, 30, 39, 54 and 63; the Powerball was 17.
The player was one of 3,200 Marylanders who added Double Play to their tickets and won a prize ranging from $7 to $10 million. The regular drawing saw 29,675 winning tickets sold in Maryland with prizes ranging from $4 to $100. This year, including this win, the state has now sold 24 $50,000 third-tier winning Powerball tickets and two $50,000 Double Play third-tier winning tickets.
No one hit the Powerball jackpot, which rolled to an estimated annuity value of $421 million for the April 25 drawing, with an estimated cash value of $252.1 million. The current jackpot run started on Feb. 16 after a single ticket in Connecticut won a $185.3 million jackpot in the Feb. 14 drawing.
