Glen Burnie Man Wins $150,000 Playing Bonus Match 5Tuesday, September 21st, 2010
Three Bonus Match 5 tickets, four birthdates and one anniversary date added up to a big win for a lucky Glen Burnie man. The 50-year-old arrived at Lottery Headquarters to claim his $150,000 prize – the result of three $50,000 winning Bonus Match 5 tickets.
The grocery store employee was preparing to watch a football game, but before the gridiron action, he tuned in to the Lottery drawings on WBAL. As the Bonus Match 5 numbers were revealed, his wife became increasingly excited as he called out the numbers. At the end of the drawing, they anxiously ran to their computer to check their ticket and verify their win on mdlottery.com.
“I checked the tickets about five times before I could believe what I saw,” said the winner. Once convinced of their new wealth, he and his wife cheered and celebrated. They then put the ticket in a safe place overnight.
The man, who has one stepdaughter and two grandchildren, plans to use his winnings to pay off his car and help his mother and mother-in-law with costly bills. The winning ticket was purchased at High’s, located at 7602 Baltimore Annapolis Blvd in Glen Burnie.
