Maryland Lottery officials searching for winner who purchased $1 million Powerball ticket

BALTIMORE, MD—Check those Powerball tickets from Wednesday night’s drawing because Maryland Lottery officials are searching for a millionaire.  Even though no one hit the estimated $850 million jackpot on Wednesday, there was a $1 million winning Powerball ticket sold in Worcester County and a $50,000 winning ticket purchased in Cecil County.

The Maryland Lottery is looking for the big winner who bought the $1 million winning ticket at Duck In II Convenience located at 5610 Market Street in Snow Hill. This is the fourth second-tier $1 million Powerball ticket sold in Maryland in 2023.

The third-tier $50,000 ticket was sold at Wesley’s Restaurant at 3700 Telegraph Road in Elkton. This is the 52nd third-tier Powerball winner of 2023.

The winning numbers in the September 27 drawing were: 1, 7, 46, 47 and 63; the Powerball was 7 and the Power Play multiplier was X3. Maryland had a total of 43,138 winners in the drawing.

Since no one in the country matched the exact numbers, Powerball continued its roll. Saturday night’s drawing has an estimated annuity of $925 million and an estimated cash value of $432.4 million. This is the fourth largest jackpot in Powerball history and the 9th largest lottery jackpot in U.S. history. The jackpot has now rolled 31 times since it hit for $1.08 billion in California on July 19.

The last Powerball jackpot to hit in Maryland was on January 20, 2021 when a $731.1 million ticket was purchased at Coney Market in Allegany County.
