Tuesday's drawing in the $50 million, multistate Big Game lottery produced a $150,000 winner in Maryland who has not claimed the prize. The Giant Food store at 13600 Laurel-Bowie Road sold the winning ticket, a "Quick Pick" random selection. The winning numbers were 07, 08, 13, 35, 50 and the "Big Money Ball," 28. The $150,000 ticket-holder had five of the six numbers correct. No one had all six winning numbers, so the jackpot for tomorrow rises to $59 million. The lottery claim center is in Reisterstown Road Plaza in Baltimore.

A lucky person holds the winning ticket for Wednesday night's Powerball drawing — the first jackpot winner sold in Maryland, according to state lottery officials. The ticket was sold at Wine World, in the 400 block of Constant Friendship Blvd. in Abingdon. That business will receive a $25,000 commission for selling the ticket, which had the numbers 3, 5, 18, 27, 54 and Power Ball 13. The winner has 182 days to claim the prize, which could be either the $108.8 million annuity — $1.2 million per year for 30 years, after taxes — or a $65 million cash option, which would result in a $43 million lump-sum payment,after taxes.

HILLSDALE, Mich. -- People in this rural southern Michigan town are asking themselves an $18-million question: Where is that winning Michigan Lotto ticket?Residents have scoured every place they can think of, from pockets of old clothes to dresser drawers and boxes. Still, no one has come up with the ticket bearing the winning numbers: 9-13-17-18-30-38.And with just two days left to claim the lottery drawing from July 1, 1992, most people have concluded that the ticket must have left town with the person who bought it.When word came last month that the only winning ticket for the $18 million jackpot had been sold at a local 7-Eleven, it created a wave of excitement in Hillsdale, a town of about 8,000 people near the Michigan-Ohio border.

Douglas Ordway of Charlotte, N.C., had the winning ticket last night in the Howard County Democratic Party's handgun trigger-lock raffle. Ordway's ticket was plucked from among 1,000 $1 tickets that were sold as part of a partisan effort to draw a contrast to Carroll County Republicans, who raffled a 9 mm semiautomatic handgun in February. The raffle for the safety device came after three hours of schmoozing and speeches at the Jefferson-Jackson Day Dinner, an annual fund-raising event for the Democratic Party.
