Two $50,000 Bonus Match 5 Winners on Oct. 2

Tickets sold in Mechanicsville, Baltimore

Two Bonus Match 5 players are each $50,000 richer today after correctly selecting the winning numbers in the Maryland Lottery and Gaming Control Agency’s Wednesday night drawing.

The players, who have yet to claim their prizes, bought the top-tier tickets at Sea Breeze Restaurant at 27130 South Sandgates Road in Mechanicsville (St. Mary’s County) and at Rosedale Discount Liquors, located at 6403 Kenwood Ave. in Baltimore County. The player who bought the ticket at the restaurant let the machine pick the numbers while the liquor store player manually selected the numbers.

The winning digits were 11-12-14-15-17 with Bonus Ball 06. Winners have 182 days to claim their prize and must come in person to the agency’s Claims Center at 1800 Washington Blvd. in Baltimore.

Bonus Match 5 drawings take place seven days a week. Players select five numbers ranging from one to 39 and then a Bonus Ball number. The Bonus Ball is always drawn from the remaining 34 numbers and 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!
