Oxon Hill Retailer Sells $50,000 Winning Bonus Match 5 Ticket

A lucky player won top prize in Oct. 1 drawing

The Maryland Lottery is looking for our Saturday night Bonus Match 5 top-prize winner! A lucky player bought a $50,000 winning ticket for the Oct. 1 drawing from Esquire Liquors in Oxon Hill.

The lucky ticket matches the five numbers of 1, 3, 5, 20 and 34; the Bonus Ball was 19. 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, located at 6108 Oxon Hill Road, 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!
