Powerball is picking up momentum as no one hit last night’s jackpot, but a $50,000 winning ticket was sold in Bethesda along with 19,370 other winning Maryland tickets with prizes ranging from $4 to $100.
The winning numbers for the Dec. 13 Powerball drawing were 3, 8, 41, 56 and 64; the Powerball was 18. Check your tickets if you were in Montgomery County where a third-tier winning ticket was sold at Woodmont Market at 8227 Woodmont Avenue in Bethesda.
