The lucky retailer, Southern Liquor Store located at 13318 H G Trueman Road in Solomons also has reason to celebrate! The Lottery will give the store a bonus of $500 for selling a top-prize ticket in the game.
Bonus Match 5 drawings take place seven days a week. Players select five numbers ranging from one 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!
