Powerball Drawing Creates Winners of $150,000, $50,000

Winning tickets sold in Bethesda, Parkville

Happy days are here for two Maryland Powerball players! Although no one hit the jackpot in the Wednesday, June 7 drawing, Maryland had one $150,000 winner, one $50,000 winner and a total of 44,523 winners of at least $4 statewide.

Check your ticket to see if it carries the winning numbers of 5, 21, 57, 66 and 69; the Power Ball was 13 and the Power Play multiplier was 3.

The Maryland Lottery is looking for the lucky players who bought a $150,000-winning ticket at the 7-Eleven store located at 7820 Wisconsin Ave. in Bethesda, and a $50,000-winning ticket at the Weis store located at 9613 Harford Road in Parkville. They were among 42 third-tier prize winners nationwide in the June 7 drawing.

The ticket purchased in Bethesda included the Power Play option, which tripled the $50,000 third-tier prize to $150,000 because of the 3x multiplier.

Lottery officials encourage winners to sign the backs of their tickets immediately and put them in safe locations. The two third-tier winners have 182 days to claim their prizes in person at Lottery headquarters, located at 1800 Washington Blvd. in Baltimore.

No one hit the $375 million Powerball jackpot, which rolls to an estimated $435 million for the Saturday, June 10 drawing with a cash option of $273.1 million (before taxes). It will be the eighth-largest jackpot amount in Powerball’s history.
