Player found Lottery luck in Veterans Day drawing
Lottery luck was in the air on Veterans Day, when a Bonus Match 5 player bought a $50,000 top-prize winning ticket at Park Avenue Pharmacy in Baltimore!
The ticket sold for the Saturday, Nov. 11 drawing matches the five numbers of 3, 8, 16, 22 and 27; the Bonus Ball was 29. Lottery officials urge the winner to sign the back of the ticket and put it in a safe place. The winner has 182 days to claim the prize and must come in person to Lottery headquarters at 1800 Washington Blvd. in Baltimore.
The retailer is also in the money! For selling a top-prize winning Bonus Match 5 ticket, the store located at 1535 Park Avenue earns a bonus of $500.
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!
