Thunderhead Bowl and Grill in Taneytown was one of two Maryland businesses to sell a $1 million-winning Powerball ticket for last Saturday's drawing.

The winning ticket matched all five white balls, with only the Powerball left unmatched, according to Maryland Lottery news release.

Saturday night's winning numbers were 3-7-21-44-53 with a Powerball of 16.

The winner has 182 days to claim their $1 million winnings.

A second $1 million ticket was sold at the Giant in Dundalk. The retailers will each receive a $2,500 bonus for selling the tickets.

No one hit the jackpot Saturday, making Wednesday's drawing worth $260 million. However, there were more than 26,000 winners of smaller cash prizes around the state from Saturday night's Powerball drawing, according to the Maryland Lottery news release.

Powerball drawing can be seen Wednesday and Saturday evenings at 11:22 p.m. on WBAL-TV, Channel 11, and are later rebroadcast on Maryland Public Television. The multi-state game is sold in 44 states and jurisdictions, according to the Maryland Lottery news release.

In February, a Mount Airy couple won the Mega Millions drawing, opting for a cash prize of $12.6 million after taxes. The couple chose to remain anonymous.

That winning ticket was purchased at the Mount Airy Shell station, located at 649 Lakeview Drive. The business received a $26,000 commission for that sale, according to a state lottery new release.
