Potomac Man Sitting Pretty with New Patio Furniture Thanks to Lottery Win

Potomac resident Keith Grymes and two co-winners are sharing a $50,000 third-tier Powerball prize.

Claimed $50,000 winning Powerball prize

Summer will be a more relaxing for Keith Grymes, thanks to his portion of a $50,000 third-tier Powerball prize from the March 27 drawing. The local business owner, who claimed the prize yesterday at Lottery headquarters, was part of a lucky trio who shared the winning ticket bought in Rockville.

“I’m using my winnings toward new patio furniture that I recently purchased,” the 50-year-old Potomac resident told Lottery officials.

When the jackpot gets high, the father-of-two and his co-winners typically pitch in and purchase Powerball tickets from Mailboxes & More located at 11140 Rockville Pike in Rockville. The March 27 drawing, which produced a single jackpot-winning ticket in Wisconsin, was worth $768.4 million. Although there was no jackpot winner in Maryland that night, the state produced 122,051 total winning tickets, including five third-tier $50,000 prizes.

The Maryland Lottery is still looking for the lucky players who bought $50,000 winning tickets for that drawing at these retailers:

  • – Emmitsburg Jubilee Foods, 515 East Main Street, Emmitsburg (Frederick County).
  • – 7-Eleven #11575, 18120 Georgia Avenue, Olney (Montgomery County).
  • – 7-Eleven #27014, 22 Watkins Park Drive, Upper Marlboro (Prince George’s County).


Lottery officials encourage winners to sign the backs of their tickets immediately and put them in a safe location. Winners have 182 days to claim their prize in person at Lottery headquarters.

The next Powerball drawing will take place Wednesday, with an estimated jackpot of $84 million.      The cash option is $52.1 million. Maryland has seen a bumper crop of $50,000 Powerball winners this year. Keith and his co-winners are among 25 $50,000 prizewinners already in 2019.
