Powerball Drawing Creates Two Big Maryland Winners

Winning tickets worth $200,000 and $50,000 sold in Sykesville, Silver Spring

The Maryland Lottery is ready to welcome two big winners from the April 26 Powerball drawing! Check your tickets closely because even though no one in Maryland hit the jackpot on Wednesday, one lucky player won $200,000 and another was a $50,000 winner.

The High’s store located at 10 Liberty Road in Sykesville sold a $200,000-winning ticket. The winner’s $50,000 prize was quadrupled to $200,000 because the player added the Power Play feature to the ticket. The Power Play option adds $1 to the price of the ticket and multiplies all prizes other than the jackpot. A Power Play multiplier of 2, 3, 4, 5 or 10 is randomly selected for each drawing. The 10x multiplier is available when the jackpot is $150 million or less.

Old World Favorites, located at 3854 International Drive in Silver Spring, sold a $50,000 winning ticket.    The winning numbers from the April 26 drawing were 1, 15, 18, 26 and 51; the Power Ball was 26.

No one hit the Powerball jackpot, which has rolled to an estimated $113 million for the Saturday, April 29 drawing. The cash option is $70.7 million.

Lottery officials encourage the winners to sign the backs of the tickets immediately. Winners have 182 days from the date of the drawing to claim prizes in person at Lottery headquarters, located at 1800 Washington Blvd. in Baltimore.
