Lucky ticket sold in Sunday, Dec. 6 drawing
Congratulations to our latest Bonus Match 5 top-prize winner! The Maryland Lottery is looking for the player holding a $50,000 winning ticket from the Dec. 6 drawing.
Erdman BP in Baltimore City sold the winning ticket, which matches the five winning numbers of 14, 22, 27, 29 and 38; the Bonus Ball was 39. Lottery officials urge the winner to sign the back of the ticket and put it in a safe place.
Winners typically get 182 days from the date of the drawing to claim prizes. However, the Lottery has temporarily extended claiming deadlines due to Maryland’s COVID-19 state of emergency.
The $50,000 winner can claim the prize by mail or in person by appointment at the Lottery headquarters’ Customer Resource Center located at 1800 Washington Blvd. in Baltimore. Winners of smaller prizes can claim them by mail, at Lottery retailers or by appointment at Lottery headquarters. Get details on how to claim by mail here, how to schedule an appointment here and how to cash prizes of up to $5,000 at Lottery retailers here.
This is our 29th top-prize-winning Bonus Match 5 ticket of 2020.
Erdman BP located at 4901 Erdman Avenue also has reason to celebrate! The Lottery will give the store a bonus of $500 for selling a top-prize ticket in the game.
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!
