Construction Worker’s Lottery Win Smooths Life’s Bumpy RoadMonday, July 15th, 2013
Wins $50,000 playing Bonus Match 5 game
Recently back to work after a long layoff, a construction worker is facing a much smoother road ahead due to his fondness for the Maryland Lottery’s nightly Bonus Match 5 game. The Baltimore man’s $50,000 win last week will help him to knock down the bills that built up during his time out of work.
“I play Bonus Match 5 as often as I can, although I’ve slowed down these last months,” the 46-year-old road construction specialist told Lottery officials. “When I checked my ticket and saw the match I thought I was dreaming. I checked my ticket over and over.”
He plans to pay much of his debt and start putting money away again. “Being out of work wiped out my savings,” he said. “This will help a ton, it just came at so perfect a time for me.”
The Loch Raven neighborhood resident encountered his Lottery luck at Limetree Liquors at 1720 East Northern Parkway.
