Fort Washington site of lucky sale in Wednesday drawing

Back-to-back Bonus Match 5 wins are always good news for our players! The Maryland Lottery is looking for the player holding a top-prize-winning ticket from the Wednesday, Oct. 10 drawing.

Fort Foote Shell in Fort Washington sold Wednesday’s lucky ticket, which matches the five numbers of 3, 12, 16, 36 and 38; the Bonus Ball was 19. Lottery officials urge the winner to sign the back of the ticket, put it in a safe place and claim the prize in person in 182 days at Lottery headquarters at 1800 Washington Blvd. in Baltimore.

A Baltimore woman claimed the $50,000 winning ticket sold in the Tuesday, Oct. 9 Bonus Match 5 drawing by E-Z Convenience in Towson.

That retailer, along with Fort Foote Shell, have reason to celebrate for selling top-prize tickets in this game. The Lottery will give the Prince George’s County gas station located at 8511 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!
