The Maryland Lottery served up a pre-Halloween treat Saturday night for a lucky Bonus Match 5 player. Check your tickets from the Saturday, Oct. 27 drawing to see if you are our lucky $50,000 top-prize winner!
Canton BP in Baltimore’s Canton neighborhood sold the winning ticket, which matches the five numbers of 5, 9, 17, 24 and 31; the Bonus Ball was 39. 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 and must come in person to Lottery headquarters at 1800 Washington Blvd. in Baltimore.
The Baltimore city retailer also has reason to celebrate! The Lottery will give the gas station located at 4700 O’Donnell Street 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 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!
