Player bought lucky ticket for Aug. 13 drawing
We have a winner! The Maryland Lottery is looking for the lucky Bonus Match 5 player who bought a $50,000 top-prize-winning ticket in the Tuesday, Aug. 13 drawing.
Pantry 1 Food Mart in Annapolis sold the ticket, which matches the five numbers of 2, 7, 12, 23 and 37; the Bonus Ball was 21. Lottery officials urge the winner to sign the back of the lucky ticket and put it in a safe place. The player has 182 days to claim the prize and must come in person to Lottery headquarters at 1800 Washington Blvd. in Baltimore. This is our 33rd top-prize winning Bonus Match 5 ticket of 2019.
The lucky Anne Arundel County retailer located at 1090 Spa Road also has reason to celebrate! The Lottery will give the store a bonus of $500 for selling the ticket. Pantry 1 Food Mart has sold several large top-prize scratch-offs in previous years, including a $100,000 Merry Millions scratch-off in 2014 and $50,000 winning Fantasy 5s scratch-off in 2016.
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!
