Columbia Woman Wins $50,000 Bonus Match 5 PrizeFriday, August 20th, 2010
A Howard County woman received a huge bonus while playing the Maryland Lottery. As usual, the 51-year-old played her daily numbers. But, this day turned out different when she matched all five of her Bonus Match 5 numbers, bringing home the $50,000 top prize.
“She plays all the time, and our daughter always looks up the winning numbers for her at mdlottery.com,” her husband of almost 30 years said. On August 9th, when the winner checked the numbers, everything changed. “She called me at work and was so excited,” her husband continued. “But I had to be calm because I was in a meeting.” She kept the winning ticket in her purse until arriving at Lottery headquarters to claim her prize
With her winnings, the mother-of-two plans to get her daughter a car, pay for college and pay taxes. She and her husband have owned their own business since the 1970’s. The winning ticket was purchased at Box N Save, located at 3409 Dundalk Avenue in Baltimore.
