Lucky ticket with Power Play wins third-tier prize in Monday’s drawing
Congratulations to a lucky Powerball player who is starting off the month of April $100,000 richer. Even though no one hit the jackpot in the Monday, April 3 drawing, one player added the Power Play option to a ticket purchased in Reisterstown to score a $100,000 prize. In all, there were 7,626 winning tickets sold in Maryland ranging from $4 to $100,000.
One Stop Convenience & Deli at 11700 Reisterstown Road in Baltimore County sold the $100,000-winning ticket. The winning numbers were 16, 30, 31, 54 and 68; the Powerball was 1 and the Power Play multiplier was x2.
Lottery officials encourage all 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.
The Powerball jackpot has rolled to an estimated annuity value of $170 million for the April 5 drawing. The estimated cash option is $90.4 million.
This year, the state has now sold 25 third-tier winning Powerball tickets worth $50,000 to $150,000 and four third-tier Powerball Double Play tickets of $50,000 and $50,007. In 2022, the state sold two $2 million second-tier winning tickets, seven $1 million second-tier winning tickets, 92 third-tier winning tickets and five Double Play third-tier winning tickets.
