Two $1 million Powerball tickets sold in Maryland

If you bought a lottery ticket for the Powerball drawing on Saturday in Dundalk or Taneytown, you might be $1 million richer.

The Maryland Lottery announced Monday that two second-tier Powerball tickets worth $1 million were bought in the state — one at the Giant on Merritt Boulevard in Dundalk and one at the Thunderhead Bowl and Grill on Old Taneytown Road in Taneytown.

Neither winner has come forward yet. The winners have 182 days to claim their prizes, the lottery said.

Lottery officials said nearly 26,000 people in Maryland won $4 or more through Saturday's drawing, and urged those who had purchased tickets to check to see if they are winners.

The $1 million winners matched all five balls, missing the Powerball number. The winning numbers were 03, 07, 21, 44 and 53. The Powerball was 16.

No one hit the jackpot. The jackpot for Wednesday's drawing is $260 million. The Powerball game is sold in 44 states and jurisdictions across the country.

Both the Giant and Thunderhead Bowl and Grill will each receive $2,500 for selling the winning tickets.
