Engineer Rides Lucky Streak to $50,000 Maryland Lottery PrizeThursday, March 20th, 2014
Becomes 4th Lottery Bonus Match 5 Winner in Three Days
A Huntingtown software engineer who began winning Maryland Lottery games day after day rode his lucky streak to a $50,000 Bonus Match 5 win on Tuesday, March 18. The loyal Lottery player won $400 twice, $600 and finally wrapped up his good fortune with the Bonus Match 5 top prize.
The Calvert County man, 43, plays Bonus Match 5 several times a week. Driving home from work on Tuesday night, he checked mdlottery.com for the winning numbers from his favorite Lottery game and got the shock of his life.
“The winning numbers looked familiar, so I started to get excited thinking that I’d matched three or four of them again. When I looked closer I couldn’t believe my eyes.” He immediately called home to share the news with his wife. “She was ecstatic, but told me that she wasn’t surprised because of how close I’d been coming to matching them all recently.”
The couple, who are parents of a teenage daughter, plan to take care of some debt, donate to their church and dedicate most of the remainder of the winnings to a college fund. Lottery luck struck for them at the 2 Go Convenience & Deli, 9016 Washington Boulevard in Savage. Their good fortune follows on the heels of three other $50,000 Bonus Match 5 wins from Sunday, March 16, to players in Aberdeen, Fort Washington and Temple Hills.
