Lucky player wins top prize in June 20 drawing
Congratulations are in order for the lucky Bonus Match 5 player who won $50,000 in the Monday, June 20 drawing. The Maryland Lottery is looking for the person who bought the winning ticket from Westpoint Shell, located at 2056 West Street in Annapolis.
The lucky ticket matches the first five numbers that were selected in the June 21 drawing: 1, 27, 29, 35 and 38. The Bonus Ball was 11. 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 in person at Lottery headquarters at 1800 Washington Blvd. in Baltimore.
The retailer is also a winner; the Lottery will give Westpoint Shell 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 first five winning numbers selected in the drawing. Tickets matching all of the first five numbers win the top prize of $50,000. If you match the Bonus Ball number, you only need to match four, three or two of the original numbers to win.
