Lucky ticket sold in Dec. 3 drawing
Happy holidays are here for a lucky Bonus Match 5 player, who is holding a top-prize-winning ticket from the Thursday, Dec. 3 drawing.
The Maryland Lottery is looking for the player who bought a ticket from Zip In Mart in Oxon Hill that matches the five winning numbers of 1, 2, 14, 21 and 30; the Bonus Ball was 38. Lottery officials urge the winner to sign the back of the ticket and put it in a safe place.
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 $50,000 winner can claim the prize by mail or in person by appointment at the Lottery headquarters’ Customer Resource Center located at 1800 Washington Blvd. in Baltimore. Get details on how to claim by mail here and how to schedule an appointment here. This is our 28th top-prize-winning Bonus Match 5 ticket sold in 2020.
Zip In Mart located at 6801 Livingston Road in Prince George’s County also has reason to celebrate. The Lottery will give the Oxon Hill store a bonus of $500 for selling a top-prize winning ticket in the game.
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!
