The Royal Farms store in Middle River sold the winning Bonus Match 5 ticket, which matches the five numbers of 16, 29, 36, 38 and 39; the Bonus Ball was 19.
Maryland 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 Maryland Lottery headquarters, located at 1800 Washington Boulevard in Baltimore.
The Baltimore retailer also has reason to celebrate! The Maryland Lottery will give the store, located at 9600 Pulaski Highway, 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!
