Powerball Drawing Creates Maryland Millionaire, Two $50,000 Winners

Players in California, Wisconsin win jackpot

Although players in California and Wisconsin will split the $632.6 million Powerball jackpot, three Maryland players were also big winners in the Jan. 5 drawing with tickets worth $1,000,004 and $50,000.

The Maryland Lottery encourages all Powerball players to check their tickets to see if they match the winning numbers of 6, 14, 25, 33 and 46 with a Power Ball of 17. In all, Maryland Lottery retailers sold 60,869 winning tickets for the Jan. 5 drawing with prizes ranging from $4 to $1,000,004. Congratulations to all of our winners!

The Maryland Lottery is looking for the lucky players who bought these winning tickets:

  • $1,000,004 — Sold by E&C Mid Atlantic #709 (Shell convenience store and gas station), 700 Gaither Road, Rockville (Montgomery County).
  • $50,000 — Sold by Crossroads Exxon, 8101 Ritchie Highway, Pasadena (Anne Arundel County).
  • $50,000 — Sold by Westlake Wine & Beer, 10442 Auto Park Avenue, Bethesda (Montgomery County).

As the Powerball jackpot began to surge, Maryland saw many big winners. From Dec. 1 through the Jan. 5 drawing, there were 20 tickets sold in Maryland worth at least $50,000, including a pair of $2 million prizes, a pair of $1 million prizes, one prize of $100,000 and 15 prizes of $50,000.

Lottery officials encourage all winners to sign the backs of their tickets immediately and put them in a safe location. Winners have 182 days from the date of the drawing to claim prizes.
