Claims top prize in March 2 drawing
A lucky Anne Arundel County resident claimed the top prize in the March 2 Bonus Match 5 drawing, taking home the $50,000 prize plus $445 in extra winnings.
She bought her lucky ticket on the day of the drawing at the Auto International Repair Center located at 1207 West Street in Annapolis. The Annapolis woman selected her own numbers for all nine lines on her $6 ticket. One of the lines matched the five winning numbers of 7, 9, 21, 23 and 27, giving her $50,000. The other eight lines combined to deliver $445 in additional prizes.
For selling the top-prize ticket in the game, the lucky retailer will receive a $500 bonus from the Lottery.
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!
