Taxes-paid win comes during a special promotion
Did you win $50,000 playing Bonus Match 5 Monday night? We’ve got a winner and it might be you! The Maryland Lottery is looking for the lucky player holding a winning ticket from the Monday, Nov. 2 drawing.
The Fork Citgo at 12601 Harford Road in Kingsville sold the lucky ticket, which matches the five numbers of 5, 13, 18, 27, 34; the Bonus Ball was 37. 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 celebrating because the Lottery will give the Baltimore County store a bonus of $500 for selling the winning ticket.
Here’s another bit of luck – this win occurred during the Lottery’s Bonus Match 5 Doubler and Taxes Paid promotion running through Nov. 15. 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!
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!
