Thursday night drawing produces top-prize winner
Are you $50,000 richer this morning? If you bought a Bonus Match 5 ticket in Oxon Hill for the Thursday, July 13, drawing, you may be our lucky winner! The Maryland Lottery is looking for the player holding a top-prize winning ticket purchased at Esquire Liquors in Prince George’s County.
The lucky ticket matches the five numbers of 7, 16, 21, 31 and 39; the Bonus Ball was 30. 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 a winner; the Lottery will give the store located at 6108 Oxon Hill Road a bonus of $500 for selling the lucky 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!
