Player buys top-prize ticket in April 5 drawing
We have a winner! The Maryland Lottery is looking for the player holding a top-prize-winning Bonus Match 5 ticket from the Friday, April 5 drawing. The 7-Eleven at 4704 Crain Highway in Upper Marlboro sold the ticket, which is the 13th $50,000 winning ticket sold in the daily game already this year.
Players should check their tickets for matches with the five winning numbers of 8, 11, 12, 24 and 36; the Bonus Ball was 18. Lottery officials urge the winner to sign the back of the ticket and put it in a safe place. The winner has 182 days to claim the prize and must come in person to Lottery headquarters at 1800 Washington Blvd. in Baltimore.
The Prince George’s County retailer also has reason to celebrate! The Lottery will give 7-Eleven #27075 a bonus of $500 for selling the lucky ticket.
Bonus Match 5 drawings take place seven days a week. Players select five numbers ranging from 1 to 39. The Bonus Ball drawn from the remaining 34 numbers provides extra chances to win. Your ticket is a winner if you match five, four or three of the original five winning numbers selected in the drawing. If you match the Bonus Ball number, you only need to match four, three or two of your original numbers to win!
