Silver Spring Retailer Sells $50,000 Bonus Match 5 Ticket

Montgomery County gas station sells winning ticket in April 21 drawing

A lucky Bonus Match 5 player spent the weekend with a smile after winning a $50,000 top prize in Friday night’s drawing. The Maryland Lottery is looking for the player who purchased the lucky ticket for the April 21 drawing at Fenton Citgo, located at 8333 Fenton Street in Silver Spring.

The ticket matched the five winning numbers of 1, 25, 29, 36 and 38; the Bonus Ball was 4. 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 retailer is a winner as well. The Lottery will give the Montgomery County store 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.
