11th top-tier ticket sold in 2015
Check your tickets, Bonus Match 5 players, because we’ve got a taxes-paid top-prize winner! The Maryland Lottery is looking for the lucky player holding a $50,000 winning ticket from the Tuesday, April 14 drawing.
That ticket sold by Gateway Tavern at 3520 Annapolis Road in Halethorpe is the 11th top-prize Bonus Match 5 ticket sold in 2015. It matches the April 14 winning numbers of 11, 19, 21, 24 and 31; the Bonus Ball was 6.
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.
Here’s another bit of luck – this win occurred during the Lottery’s Bonus Match 5 Doubler and Taxes Paid promotions running through April 26. Winning tickets with “Doubler” printed on them pay $100,000 rather than $50,000. And, taxes are paid on all winning tickets worth $50,000 or $100,000!
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. If you match the Bonus Ball number, you only need to match four, three or two of your original numbers to win!
