Lucky ticket sold from Aug. 16 drawing
A Bonus Match 5 player is starting off the week with a smile on their face. That’s because the lucky winner matched all five Bonus Match 5 numbers last night, taking home the $50,000 top prize.
New Town Sunoco at 9330 Lakeside Blvd. in Owings Mills sold the winning ticket, which matched the five numbers of 5, 8, 11, 19 and 24; the Bonus Ball was 39.
Lottery officials recommend the winner sign the back of the ticket and keep it in a safe place until claiming the prize. Winners typically get 182 days from the date of the drawing to claim prizes. However, the Lottery has temporarily extended claiming deadlines due to Maryland’s COVID-19 state of emergency.
The winner can claim the prize by mail or in person by scheduling an appointment at the Lottery Customer Resource Center. Get details on how to claim by mail here or schedule an appointment here.
This is our 41st top-prize-winning Bonus Match 5 ticket of 2020.
New Town Sunoco also has reason to celebrate! The Lottery will give the Baltimore County retailer 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!
