Happy Monday, Maryland Lottery Bonus Match 5 players! We had a weekend winner!

We’re looking for the lucky player holding a $50,000 winning ticket from the Friday, May 1 drawing. New Carrollton Shell at 8309 Annapolis Road in Hyattsville sold the winning ticket.

This is the 17th top-prize winning Bonus Match 5 ticket sold in 2015 and matches the five numbers of 4, 9, 17, 18, 29; the Bonus Ball was 32. 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.

The Lottery is still waiting to hear from the winners of two April Bonus Match 5 drawings. A $50,000 top-prize ticket was sold by Gateway Tavern in Baltimore for the April 14 drawing and by Fairhill Liquors in Elkton for the April 24 drawing.

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!
