Abingdon Retailer Sells $50,000 Bonus Match 5 Ticket

19th top-tier ticket sold in 2015

A lucky Bonus Match 5 player either enjoyed a truly memorable weekend after winning the $50,000 top prize in the Thursday, May 21 drawing or will get a big surprise this week when he or she checks the winning numbers.

Lottery luck came to Constant Friendship Exxon at 3424 Emmorton Road in Abingdon, which sold the 19th top-prize winning Bonus Match 5 ticket of 2015.

The winning numbers are 8, 11, 15, 21 and 28; the Bonus Ball was 38. Lottery officials urge the winner to sign the back of the ticket and put it in a safe place. The winner has 182 days to claim the prize and must come in person to Lottery headquarters at 1800 Washington Blvd. in Baltimore.

The retailer is also a winner; the Lottery will give the store a bonus of $500 for selling the lucky ticket.

Bonus Match 5 drawings take place seven days a week. Players select five numbers ranging from one 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. If you match the Bonus Ball number, you only need to match four, three or two of your original numbers to win!
