Maryland Lottery Looking for Three Weekend Winners

Seeking two Bonus Match 5 winners, one second-tier Powerball winner

The Maryland Lottery is looking for three weekend winners who bought Bonus Match 5 tickets in Laurel and Lexington Park and a Powerball ticket in Baltimore for the Saturday drawings.

Because of a special promotion running through Nov. 17, the Bonus Match 5 winners will receive $50,000 with taxes paid. The two retailers that sold winning tickets are 7-Eleven at 3393 Laurel Fort Meade Road in Laurel (Anne Arundel County) and Donut Connection at 21800 North Shangri La Drive in Lexington Park (St. Mary’s County). The winning Bonus Match 5 numbers were 4-11-19-30-33 with Bonus Ball of 10.

The retailer that sold the winning $1 million second-tier Powerball ticket is John’s Elmwood Tavern at 4423 Kenwood Ave. in Baltimore, which will receive a $2,500 agent bonus. The $130 million Powerball jackpot-winning ticket was sold in New York and five $1 million second-tier winning tickets were sold in Maryland and in Florida, Iowa, New Jersey and Pennsylvania. The winning Powerball numbers were 10-29-37-44-59-10.

This year, nine Maryland players have won the $1 million second-tier prize. A Cockeysville couple claimed the $1 million second-tier winning Powerball ticket sold at the Food Lion in Cockeysville for the Nov. 9 drawing.

The weekend winners have 182 days to claim their prizes in person to the Maryland Lottery and Gaming Control Agency headquarters at 1800 Washington Blvd. in Baltimore.

Bonus Match 5 drawings take place every evening, seven days a week. The Lottery selects five winning numbers ranging from one to 39 and then draws a Bonus Ball from the remaining 34 numbers. The Bonus Ball offers extra chances to win.

Watch Powerball drawings at 11:22 p.m. Wednesday and Saturday evenings on WBAL-TV, Channel 11. The multistate game is sold in 45 states and jurisdictions. Powerball players choose five numbers from one to 59 plus a Powerball from one to 35.
