Second-tier win in Cash4Life, top-prize in Bonus Match 5 highlight the weekend
Two lucky Maryland Lottery players landed big wins this past weekend, courtesy of the multi-state Cash4Life game and Maryland’s Bonus Match 5 game. Rosedale Shell in Baltimore sold a second-tier winning Cash4Life ticket worth $1,000 a week for life on Sunday, Aug. 8, and Royal Farms #098 in Millersville sold a $50,000 top-prize winning Bonus Match 5 ticket on Friday, Aug. 6.
The player holding the lucky Cash4Life ticket is the second person to win a second-tier $1,000-a-week-for-life Cash4Life prize in Maryland in 2021. It is also the fifth second-tier winner since the game became available in the state in 2016.
Rosedale Shell located at 7514 Pulaski Highway in Baltimore will receive a $2,500 bonus from the Lottery for selling the second-tier winning Cash4Life ticket. The winner can choose between a $1,000-a-week-for-life annuity paid in annual installments of $52,000 a year, or a one-time payment of $1 million (both amounts are before taxes). Check your ticket for the winning numbers of 6, 23, 31, 44 and 48 the Cash Ball was 2. Our lucky $1,000-a-week-for-life winner matched the first five numbers, but narrowly missed out on winning the top prize of $1,000 a day for life because the ticket did not match the Cash Ball number.
Royal Farms #098 located at 8200 Veterans Highway in Millersville will receive a $500 bonus from the Lottery for its lucky sale. The Bonus Match 5 winning numbers to match from the Aug. 6 drawing are 2, 15, 17, 25 and 35; the Bonus ball was 8. This is the 29th top-prize winning Bonus Match 5 ticket sold in Maryland in 2021.
