Who is our lucky Bonus Match 5 winner? The Maryland Lottery is looking for the player holding a top-prize winning ticket from the Tuesday, Aug. 28 drawing.
Lothian Service Center in Lothian sold the ticket, which matches the five numbers of 23, 28, 29, 34 and 36; the Bonus Ball was 14. Lottery officials urge the winner to sign the back of the ticket and put it in a safe place. Players have 182 days to claim prizes and $50,000 winners must do so in person at Lottery headquarters, 1800 Washington Boulevard in Baltimore.
The Anne Arundel County retailer also has reason to celebrate! The Lottery will give the store located at 5891 Southern Maryland Boulevard 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 1 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!
