Accokeek Retailer Sells $50,000 Winning Bonus Match 5 Ticket

Saturday drawing yields new winner

A lucky Bonus Match 5 player enjoyed a Saturday night delight when the winning numbers in the July 16 drawing matched numbers on his or her ticket! The Maryland Lottery is looking for the player who bought the $50,000 top-prize winning ticket from Kellers Market, located at 15624 Livingston Road in Accokeek.

The lucky ticket matches the five numbers of 16, 17, 19, 20 and 21; the Bonus Ball was 13. Lottery officials urge the winner to sign the back of the ticket and put it in a safe place. The lucky player has 182 days to claim the prize and must come in person to Lottery headquarters at 1800 Washington Blvd. in Baltimore.

The Prince George’s County retailer is also a winner; the Lottery will give Kellers Market 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 1 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!
