Player bought third-tier winning ticket in Wednesday’s drawing
Congratulations to the Maryland Lottery player holding a $50,000-winning Powerball ticket from last night’s drawing! The third-tier winner, who bought the lucky ticket at a Prince George’s County retailer, is one of 15 $50,000 winners nationwide in the May 10 drawing.
Although no one hit the jackpot, the drawing turned 9,755 Maryland Powerball tickets into winners of prizes ranging from $4 to $50,000. The lucky numbers to match were 21, 24, 33, 55 and 69; the Powerball was 3 and the Power Play multiplier was x10.
Maryland’s big winner bought the ticket at Eastern Avenue BP located at 4501 Eastern Avenue in Mt. Rainier.
Lottery officials encourage all winners to sign the backs of their tickets immediately and put them in a safe location. They get 182 days from the date of the drawing to claim their prizes.
The Powerball jackpot has rolled to an estimated annuity value of $125 million for the upcoming Saturday, May 13 drawing. The estimated cash option is $67.2 million.
This year, Maryland has had 34 third-tier winning tickets worth $50,000 to $150,000 and four third-tier Powerball Double Play tickets of $50,000 and $50,007. In 2022, the state sold two $2 million second-tier winning tickets, seven $1 million second-tier winning tickets, 92 third-tier winning tickets and five Double Play third-tier winning tickets.
