Lucky numbers matched those in Sept. 24 drawing

A Prince George’s County man is $50,002 richer after matching all five winning numbers in the Sept. 24 Bonus Match 5 drawing plus two numbers on a second line of his ticket.

The 75-year-old Fort Washington resident visited F&W Convenience in Fort Washington to buy the winning ticket, which matched the five numbers of 3, 8, 13, 23 and 37; the Bonus Ball was 31. The lucky player, who selected his own numbers, also matched a 13 and 23 on a second line of the $2 ticket.

The Prince George’s County retailer is also a winner. The Lottery gave the store located at 974 East Swan Creek Road in Fort Washington a bonus of $500 for selling the top-prize winning ticket.
