The winner purchased the ticket at Charles Station, located at 3030 St. Charles Parkway in Waldorf. The ticket matches all five winning numbers from the May 3 drawing: 11, 27, 32, 36 and 39; the Bonus Ball was 31. The winner has 182 days after the date of the drawing to claim the prize and must come in person to Lottery headquarters at 1800 Washington Blvd. in Baltimore. Lottery officials urge the winner to sign the back of the ticket and keep it in a safe place until he or she can claim the prize.
