What a wonderful Wednesday, Bonus Match 5 players, because we have a new winner! The Maryland Lottery is looking for the lucky player holding a $50,000 winning ticket from the Tuesday, Aug. 2 drawing.
Twin Beach Convenient Mart in Chesapeake Beach sold the winning ticket, which matches the five numbers of 9, 14, 20, 33 and 34; the Bonus Ball was 13. Lottery officials urge the winner to sign the back of the ticket and put it in a safe place. The lucky player has 182 days to claim the prize and must come in person to Lottery headquarters at 1800 Washington Blvd. in Baltimore.
The Calvert County retailer is also a winner; the Lottery will give the store located at 8426 Bayside Road 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 one 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!
