Wins $50,000 MONOPOLY™ Bonus Prize

When Towson University Senior Erika Jensen received a call from Lottery officials this week, it gave her quite a shock. The 22-year-old pre-law student rarely plays the Lottery, so she wasn’t expecting to win $50,000 through a MONOPOLY™ bonus drawing. Jensen’s winning ticket was selected from more than 374,000 entries.

The Chestertown resident is very glad she decided to listen to her mother, an avid scratch-off player, who urged her to play MONOPOLY™ and enter the non-winning ticket into the game’s Internet promotion. Her mother’s insistence paid off when Jensen received news of the win during a busy day at the office. “At first I thought it was a prank, but when the Lottery sent me an email to confirm the win, I had to run out of the building,” she said.

When she returned to her office, Jensen explained her excitement to her supervisor and then began to call family, beginning with her mother.  The busy student says she will continue working and will put her winnings into a savings account while she completes her studies towards a law degree.

Players may enter non-winning MONOPOLY™ scratch-offs for the chance to win $50,000 at mdlottery.com/Monopoly.  The next drawing will take place on July 24.

    I started playing during the beginning of the game and have
    submitted over 1100 entries every game drawing, no luck yet. I just stop buying
    less scratch off and putting less entries to others 10 to 60 entries and they
    win. Everything is a gamble; I guess it’s just not my turn yet to win.  I wish everybody luck we all have different circumstances
    to try to get ahead, but don’t go broke turning to do it. Something is a just givemick
    that we fall into trying to get ahead. God Bless everyone and I wish you all
    luck.  Dee

    I submitted over 1100 entries for the past 5 drawing and everyone else submitt like 10 to 60 entries and they win,  so I just buy less and try to win that way.  The less you put in the better you might win like very body else.  Wish every one luck.   Dee
