Mother’s Day drawing delivers fifth May winner in the game
One of our Bonus Match 5 players enjoyed a special Mother’s Day this year – he or she won the game’s $50,000 top prize in the Sunday, May 8 drawing!
The lucky player bought the winning ticket at Meadows Market and Restaurant located at 9400 Marlboro Pike in Upper Marlboro. The winning ticket matches the five numbers of 10, 16, 21, 27 and 34; the Bonus Ball was 11. Lottery officials urge the winner to sign the back of the ticket and put it in a safe place. The Mother’s Day winner has 182 days to claim the prize in person at Lottery headquarters, which is located at 1800 Washington Blvd. in Baltimore.
The retailer shares in the fun; the Lottery will give the store a bonus of $500 for selling the top-prize 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!
