Spring Ridge Exxon in Frederick makes super sale
Congratulations to a lucky Bonus Match 5 player — or players! A Frederick County retailer sold 24 top-prize-winning tickets in the Friday, June 12 drawing, giving a lucky player or players $600,000 in total prizes.
The tickets match the five numbers of 2, 9, 11, 13 and 17; the Bonus Ball was 25. Lottery officials urge the winner(s) to sign the back of the tickets and keep them in a safe place until claiming the big win.
Regular Bonus Match 5 top-prize wins are worth $50,000. However, as the Lottery states on its website, “In the unlikely event more than 12 game boards correctly match five of five winning numbers in a single drawing, each game board matching five of five winning numbers will receive an equal share of the $600,000 pool.”
This is not the first time a lucky player has won the $600,000 pool for a Bonus Match 5 drawing. In 2016, a Baltimore man did so at a Dundalk retailer after purchasing multiple tickets.
The lucky winner or winners in the June 12 drawing typically get 182 days to claim the prize. However, the Lottery has temporarily extended claiming deadlines due to Maryland’s COVID-19 state of emergency. The Lottery’s Claims Center is temporarily closed. Information on how to claim information is available here.
Spring Ridge Exxon located at 6067 Spring Ridge Parkway in Frederick also has reason to celebrate! The Lottery will give the store a bonus of $6,000 for its super sale.
Bonus Match 5 drawings take place seven days a week. Players select five numbers ranging from one 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!
