$1M Powerball ticket sold in Carroll County, jackpot grows

A Powerball ticket worth $1 million was sold in Carroll County in advance of Saturday's drawing.

Nobody won the $361 million jackpot Saturday night, however someone matched all five numbers — 3, 7, 9, 31 and 33 — on a ticket sold at the High's store on Liberty Road in Sykesville.

No tickets matched all five plus the Powerball, meaning the jackpot rolls over to an estimated $403 million for Wednesday's drawing.

"Winners should sign the backs of their tickets and keep them someplace safe," the state lottery said in a statement. "The winners must claim the prizes at Lottery headquarters at 1800 Washington Blvd. in Baltimore within 182 days of the drawing date. Maryland Lottery prize winners have the option to remain anonymous."

The store owner will receive a $2,500 bonus from the Maryland Lottery for selling the winning ticket.

Some similar second-tier winners in other states utilized the $1 Power Play option on their tickets and will win $2 million, the state lottery said.

Aside from the big winner in Carroll County, the lottery is on the lookout for winning tickets coming in from a November drawing. A $1 million Powerball winner from the Nov. 23, 2016 drawing has yet to come forward after purchasing the ticket at a 7-Eleven in Ocean City. The winner has until May 23 to claim the prize, the lottery said.

Also Saturday, a Bonus Match 5 player won the $50,000 top prize on a ticket purchased at the Cut Rate Liquors store on North Point Boulevard in Dundalk, according to Maryland Lottery.
