29th top-tier winning ticket sold in 2015
Happy Monday, Bonus Match 5 players! We’re starting the week off with a $50,000 winner from the Sunday, July 12 drawing. Top’s Liquors at 4422 Wheeler Road in Oxon Hill sold the lucky ticket, which is the 29th top-prize winning Bonus Match 5 ticket sold in 2015.
Check your ticket to see if it matches the five numbers of 2, 15, 16, 22 and 24; the Bonus Ball was 23. 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 a winner; the Lottery will give the store a bonus of $500 for selling the lucky ticket.
Three winning tickets from drawings last week have not yet been claimed. Those $50,000 winners came from Short Stop News in Columbia for the July 6 drawing, Spirits of Liberty in Frederick for the July 7 drawing and Village Wines & Liquors in Baltimore for the July 8 drawing.
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!
