Who’s our newest Bonus Match 5 winner? The Maryland Lottery is looking for the lucky player who bought a $50,000 winning ticket for the Monday, May 4 drawing. Koko’s Mini Market at 7060 Oakland Mills Road in Columbia sold the winning ticket.

The ticket is the 18th top-prize winning Bonus Match 5 ticket sold in 2015 and matches the five numbers of 7, 9, 17, 19 and 35; the Bonus Ball was 11. 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 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.
