Takoma Park Man Claims $50,004 Powerball Prize from Historic Drawing

Montgomery Park winner claims $50,004 prize

A Takoma Park man who purchased a Powerball ticket in the historic Nov. 7 drawing came up $50,004 richer, missing the $2.04 billion jackpot win by only one number.

The 70-year-old came into Maryland Lottery headquarters with a great big smile and left still thinking about how he would spend his prize. He was one of eight Marylanders who won third-tier prizes in the drawing, which also generated a $1 million prize for another player in the state.

His lucky Lottery retailer was Check Cash Depot #004 located at 8476 Piney Branch Road in Silver Spring.

There’s still time to get tickets for the next Powerball drawing on Wednesday, Nov. 30. The estimated jackpot annuity is $65 million with an estimated cash value of $33.7 million.
