Both games have winners from May 23 drawings
May 23 was truly a lucky night for two Maryland Lottery players! We’re looking for the Multi-Match player who won the game’s $750,000 jackpot and a Bonus Match 5 player who bought a $50,000 top-prize winning ticket for the Thursday, May 23 drawings.
The Multi-Match winner, who is the third player to hit a Multi-Match jackpot in 2019, can choose between the annuity and an estimated $425,000 cash option (before taxes). The winning ticket with the numbers 5, 18, 34, 35, 40 and 41 came from Harford County’s Winters Run Inn in Joppa.
The Bonus Match 5 winning numbers were 9, 11, 18, 23 and 30; the Bonus Ball was 29. That lucky ticket was sold by Crofton Exxon of Anne Arundel County.
Lottery officials encourage the winners to sign the back of the tickets and keep them in a safe location. The players have 182 days to claim their prize in person at Lottery headquarters located at 1800 Washington Blvd. in Baltimore.
The lucky retailers win, too. Winters Run Inn located at 1907 Philadelphia Road in Joppa will receive a $1,000 bonus from the Lottery for selling the winning Multi-Match ticket. Crofton Exxon at 1276 Route 3 South in Crofton earns a $500 bonus for its lucky sale of the 23rd top-prize winning Bonus Match 5 ticket of 2019.
The top three Multi-Match jackpot wins were $4.8 million on Sept. 19, 2009; $4.45 million on March 18, 2010 and $3.8 million on Dec. 16, 2010.
