Third Winning $50,000 Bonus Match 5 Ticket Sold in Three Days

Winners sold in July 6, 7, 8 drawings

We’ve got a winning streak in progress with our Bonus Match 5 game! For the third time in three days, the game has produced a $50,000 winner. The lucky player holding a top-prize-winning ticket from the Wednesday, June 8 drawing bought it at Village Wines & Liquors at 7006 Reisterstown Road in Baltimore.

This is the 28th top-prize-winning Bonus Match 5 ticket sold in 2015.

The lucky ticket matches the five numbers of 1, 7, 8, 29, 32; the Bonus Ball was 27. Lottery officials urge the winner to sign the back of the ticket and put it in a safe place. The winner has 182 days from the date of the drawing to claim the prize and must come in person to Lottery headquarters at 1800 Washington Blvd. in Baltimore.

The retailer is also a winner; the Lottery will give the store a bonus of $500 for selling the lucky ticket.

The Lottery is still waiting to hear from the lucky winners of the July 6 and July 7 drawings. Be sure to check your tickets if you bought one for the July 6 drawing from Short Stop News in Columbia or for the July 7 drawing from Spirits of Liberty in Frederick.

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.
