Single ticket sold in Arizona wins $473.1 million jackpot in Wednesday’s drawing
Marylanders won 30,905 prizes ranging from $4 to $50,000 in the Wednesday night Powerball drawing, which saw a single ticket in Arizona hit the jackpot for a $473.1 million prize.
The Maryland Lottery is looking for the lucky player who bought the $50,000 third-tier winning ticket at Giant #330 located at 3500 Northwest Crain Highway in Bowie. The winning numbers to match were 11, 36, 61, 62 and 68; the Powerball was 4 with a Power Play multiplier of x2.
This was the 31st draw in the jackpot roll, which began Feb. 16 after a single ticket sold in Connecticut won the $185.3 million jackpot in the Feb. 14 drawing. The cash value for the April 27 jackpot was $283.3 million.
This year, the state has now sold two $2 million second-tier winning Powerball tickets, one $1 million second-tier winning ticket, 25 third-tier winning tickets worth at least $50,000 and two $50,000 Double Play third-tier winning tickets.
Maryland is home to three Powerball jackpot wins: $731.1 million in January 2021 (Lonaconing, Allegany County); $128.8 million in December 2011 (Elkton, Cecil County) and $108.8 million in September 2011 (Abingdon, Harford County).
Lottery officials encourage all winners to sign the backs of their tickets immediately and put them in a safe location. They get 182 days from the date of the drawing to claim their prizes.
