Premonitions Precede Woman’s MONOPOLY™ Second-Chance PaydayWednesday, August 22nd, 2012
“I was just about to give up on second-chance contests,” said Brenda Alesci. Before she had a chance to give up on the bonus contests run by the Maryland State Lottery, Alesci received a call informing her that she had won $50,000 from the ongoing MONOPOLY™ scratch-off bonus contest.
The Baltimore resident was feeling pessimistic, having participated in many Lottery second-chance contests, to no avail. But last week, Alesci had a different feeling when she left the house to visit her grand kids. She was overcome with a feeling that she’d receive a call from the Maryland Lottery. When she returned home, her husband gave her a message from a Lottery official. She thought it was a joke until she called and was instructed to claim her $50,000 at the Lottery’s Baltimore claim center.
Alesci plans to share her MONOPOLY™ payday with her kids and grandkids. “I’ve been helping them all their lives. It’s how I was raised. Why would I stop now,” said Alesci.
Players may enter non-winning MONOPOLY™ scratch-offs for the chance to win $50,000 at mdlottery.com/Monopoly. The final drawing will take place on August 29th.
