Dundalk Man Scores with Favorite Lottery GameFriday, March 29th, 2013
Wins $50,000 Playing Bonus Match 5
A Dundalk man visited Lottery Headquarters today to claim a prize for a game he played just about every day, but never expected to win. A big fan of the Lottery’s Bonus Match 5 game, he works a review of the previous night’s winning numbers into his daily routine, although yesterday’s routine was a little different.
“Last time, I checked my Wednesday tickets and I saw an odd message on the scanner, something about visiting the Lottery office,” the 48-year-old mechanic told officials. “I compared the winning numbers and was stunned. I kept saying to myself, ‘This can’t be happening.’”
When asked how the $50,000 win would fit into his life, the Dundalk man told us, “It’s been a very tough couple of months for me. This is really a relief, to be able to better handle the financial end of things.” The lucky Bonus Match 5 ticket was purchased from the Merritt BP station at 800 Merritt Boulevard in Baltimore.
