Though the Charles County winner of a portion of the $414 million Mega Millions jackpot has not come forward, the luck has not run out in the county.

The Maryland Lottery announced Friday that a Charles County man claimed two February Racetrax wins that total $65,369 from games played at Shymansky’s Marina & Restaurant on Cobb Island.

The man played the computer-animated horse racing game Feb. 23 and won $38,469. He won $26,920 a week earlier playing Racetrax, according to a news release from the lottery agency.

On both days, the man chose a Trifecta Box set, selecting three horses to win in any order.

Shymansky’s owner Robert Shymansky said those who play the lottery at his restaurant seem to do OK when it comes to winning. He said because they have to claim the win at headquarters when the winnings are high, he doesn’t always know about a big win until later. He said he always is pleased to hear it.

Unclaimed tickets

The Maryland Lottery is looking for a Bonus Match 5 winner who purchased a ticket in Waldorf.

The lottery urges people to check their tickets for the March 20 drawing, as two $50,000 winning tickets were sold — one at St. Charles Mobil Station in Waldorf and the other at a store in Takoma Park.

The winning numbers were 4-6-8-12-17 with a Bonus Ball of 20.

Winners have 182 days to claim their prizes and must do so in person at lottery headquarters at 1800 Washington Blvd. in Baltimore.
