Maryland LotteryMaryland Lottery: 21 tickets win Maryland Lottery's Bonus Match 5

Lottery players throughout the State of Maryland should check their Bonus Match 5 tickets for a little something extra this holiday season.

Saturday night's drawing produced 21 winning tickets. The winning numbers were 02, 03, 04, 05, 08 and Bonus Ball 30. Top-tier winners must match the first five numbers.

If twelve or more winning tickets are sold in a single drawing, each winner will receive an equal share of a $600,000 pari-mutuel pool. Since 21 winning tickets were sold, each ticket will be worth $28,571.43.

As a part of a special promotion, the Maryland Lottery pays the estimated taxes on all Bonus Match 5 top-tier prizes.

Fifteen of the winning tickets were purchased at 7-11 #11727 in Bethesda; two were sold at Royal Farm #023 in Reisterstown; and one ticket was purchased at each of the following locations: Aspen Hill Beer & Wine in Silver Spring, Indo Pak Grocery in Baltimore, Royal Farm #011 in Baltimore, and McKay's Food & Drug in California.

Winners have 182 days to claim their prizes.

    Most likely the 15 bought in Bethesda were by the same person/group. Even if there were no other 5/5 tickets, each would be worth less than $50,000. It made no sense to buy so many duplicates.

      It will be interesting to see how this plays out. If it was 21 different people and the numbers weren't quickpicks I'd start to be a little suspicious. Remember what happened in Pennsylvania in the early 80s.

        I'm not so sure Cash, it might have been a smart move.  If it was a group of 15 people and they only bought 1 set of winning tickets, then there would only be 6 winning tickets total valued at $100,000 a piece, and they would have to split $100,000 15 ways.  but 15 of the 21 tickets valued at 28,500+ each, gives them $427,500+ out of the 600,000 and each person gets there own ticket to sign and deal with. If it was just one person with 15 of the tickets they just took 2/3 of the pot all by themselves.   But alot of this is just speculation right now,,,Or am I missing something here?

          There was an Ohioan who did the same thing when Ohio had the Buckeye5 game because Ohio guaranteed $100,000 per winning ticket up to $1,000,000.  He bought 18 duplicates and thought he was getting $1,800,000 but there was one other winning ticket  so he got less than the $1M dollars limit and sued because he thought the store clerk should have told him about the $1M limit when he asked for more than 10 duplicates.  The court said it was his responsibility to read the rules on the back of the play slips.  He wasn't happy with winning 95% of the $1M dollars prize.

            The one person who had 15 tickets bought them at different times.  Now I'm waiting to see if he/she is an acquaintance in any way with the other  6 winners.  Hmmmm..  With all the people on this forum I would like to know one who would buy 15 tickets with the same 5 numbers.  Also we get 3 tickets for $2.00 and there is 9 tickets on a board.  Math doesn't even seem right.

              The top prize in Maryland BM5 is $50,000, not $100k. The cap is exceeded only when there are at least 13 winners.

                There have been several members post 10 or more duplicates on the prediction board many times.  I assume some of them post predictions in the same manner that they actually play, I do.  I also assume when someone plays duplicates knowingly, they have a strong hunch about that combination and sometimes they're right.

                  RJOh, I've been on this forum quite awhile could you show me just one member who posted 10 (5 digit predictions) all the same.

                    I wasn't just talking about the pick5 games.  I was talking about the prediction board in general.  You'll have to do a search to find a particular case.

                      This is a link to the story about the Ohio man who bought multi able pick5 tickets with the same numbers.

                        Thanks RHOh, guess you got me.  By the way I hear the guy is a taxi cab driver, if it's all fair and square more power to him.

                          I also read a news story about a guy who won a million or so dollars playing PowerBall by playing the same combinations of five several times and picking different PBs.  He didn't pick the right PB so he didn't win the jackpot.

                          This logic doesn't make sense to most players but when players win using it who going to argue with them.
