Columbia Retailer Sells $50,000 Bonus Match 5 Ticket

Third winning ticket sold in May

A lucky Bonus Match 5 winner is having one heck of a happy Cinco de Mayo! The Maryland Lottery is looking for the player holding a $50,000 winning ticket from the Wednesday, May 4 drawing.

Check your ticket if you bought it from the 7-Eleven at 8850 Centre Park Drive in Columbia. The winning numbers are 21, 25, 28, 32 and 37; the Bonus Ball was 10. 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 retailer is also a winner; the Lottery will give the store a $500 bonus for selling the lucky ticket. This is the third winning Bonus Match 5 ticket sold this month. A winning ticket was sold on May 1 at Willowtree Liquors in Frederick and on May 2 at KK Mart in Laurel.

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!
