Powerball Jackpot Rolls, Gives Maryland a $50,000 Winner

Player bought lucky ticket in Upper Marlboro

The Powerball jackpot rolled to an estimated annuity value of $700 million after Wednesday’s drawing. And in the process, the game delivered a $50,000 prize on a ticket sold in Prince George’s County and 28,272 other Maryland prizes. No one hit the jackpot, which is now the sixth-largest in Powerball history and the 10th-largest in U.S. lottery history.

The Maryland Lottery is looking for the lucky player who bought a third-tier winning ticket at Croom Citgo located at 7538 Crain Highway in Upper Marlboro. The winning numbers were 31, 43, 58, 59 and 66; the Powerball was 9 and Power Play was x2. This is the ninth third-tier Powerball winning ticket sold in Maryland in 2023.

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

Instructions on claiming prizes in person or by mail are available HERE. Players must redeem prizes larger than $25,000 by mail or at Lottery headquarters in the Montgomery Park Business Center, 1800 Washington Blvd., Suite 330 in Baltimore.
