With Powerball’s top prize reaching spectacular heights, a jackpot game enthusiast from Rosedale was eager to check the numbers on his ticket after the Jan. 6 drawing.

Hoping to land the $500 million jackpot on the line that night, he ventured to a Royal Farms store on Jan. 7 in the morning and scanned his ticket at the store’s ticket checker. The father of one received the message everyone hopes to see, especially with a huge jackpot on the line: “Cash at Lottery.”

The 45-year-old, who works in sales, didn’t land the top prize. By matching four numbers plus the Power Ball, he did, however, win $50,000 – the largest Lottery prize of his life!

“I usually play Mega Millions, and I’ll buy one or two Powerball tickets,” said the winner. His wife of 16 years came along as he claimed the prize at Maryland Lottery headquarters. “It’s a large prize. I’m definitely happy.”

The lucky winner said he and his wife plan to use the prize to pay off bills. He also intends to keep chasing the Powerball jackpot. The Baltimore County resident purchased his winning ticket at the Mars store located at 9544 Philadelphia Road in Baltimore.

With no jackpot winners in the Jan. 6 Powerball drawing, the top prize climbed to an estimated annuity value of $700 million for the next drawing on Jan. 9, making it the largest prize in U.S. Lottery history. Powerball drawings take place on Wednesday and Saturday nights. They are broadcast at 11:22 p.m. on WBAL-TV in Baltimore.
