Wins $50,000 Taxes-Paid Prize

A happy Hyattsville man arrived at Lottery Headquarters yesterday with his best friends in tow and no idea how much money he had won. The 34-year-old discovered he was a Bonus Match 5 winner on Saturday. What he didn’t realize was that taxes were paid on his prize as a result of the Maryland Lottery’s Bonus Match 5 Doubler promotion. The promotion, which runs through September 4, 2011, doubles the prize on winning tickets which show the word “Doubler” and also pays the taxes on top prizes of $50,000 and $100,000.

The father-of-one seemed to take his good fortune in stride, telling Lottery officials with a shy smile, “I was excited, obviously. The taxes being paid was an extra bonus.” Aside from intending to take his friends to dinner, the winner has no particular plans for his windfall.

The winning ticket was purchased at 7-11 #18208, located at 645 E. Patapsco Ave. in Baltimore.

    It seems that everyday the  numbers are almost the same in the Match five, and on  the daily numbers the 3 & 4 digits are repeats many times in a week.

      Barbaraedman: Winning numbers have always been – and will continue to be – purely the luck of the draw and a matter of random chance. Numbers drawn for each of the Lottery’s daily drawing games are arbitrary. Every time a ball is drawn, it is an independent and unique event, completely unaffected by what ball was drawn seconds, hours, days, or weeks earlier. In addition, each ball drawn has the same exact chance of being drawn as any other ball in the machine, at any point in time.

      Although every ball has the same exact chance of coming up per draw, random drawings do occasionally produce unusual results. Because of this, similar numbers, the same numbers, or even what appears to be a pattern or sequence may be drawn from time to time. I assure you, however, that drawings conducted are fair and random.

We encourage everyone to share their story, but some choose to stay confidential. Keep in mind, however, some of our 2nd chance contests require publicity.

      The geographic locations of our winners are random. There is no way to predict where the winners will be. However, research tells us that more winners come from areas of the State in which more people are playing. Please take a look at our winners stories. There you’ll see that we have winners from all over the State.

    If he had a ‘doubler’, why did he only win $50K? Whould he not win $100K?

      Thomas: We apologize for the confusion. He won the top prize, but did not have a DOUBLER ticket. We have revised the story to be more clear. Thanks.
