Bonus Match 5 Delivers Pair of $50,000 Valentine’s Day Surprises

Top-prize winning tickets sold in Gambrills, Nottingham

Lady Luck delivered a special Valentine’s Day surprise to two Bonus Match 5 players — a pair of $50,000 top-prize wins. Check your tickets to see if you are a winner!

Players bought the winning tickets at Wawa #595 at 701 Annapolis Road in Gambrills and at Grape & Grain Wine & Spirits located at 4299 Ebenezer Road in Nottingham.

The lucky tickets match the five numbers of 17, 24, 30, 37 and 39; the Bonus Ball was 34. Lottery officials urge each winner to sign the back of their ticket and put it in a safe place. The winners have 182 days to claim the prize and must come in person to Lottery headquarters at 1800 Washington Blvd. in Baltimore.

The retailers both have reason to celebrate! The Lottery will give each store a bonus of $500 for selling the lucky tickets.

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!
