Baltimore man claims prize on $1 straight Pick 5 bet
A lucky Baltimore resident who plays Lottery games from time to time is on a winning streak of sorts. The 68-year-old won a $2,500 prize on a Pick 4 game and, on July 2, won $50,000, which is his biggest prize to date.
The lucky player bought a $1 straight bet ticket for the July 1-2 midday and evening drawings while at Redfish Liquors in Baltimore. When he learned he won, the player remained low key.
“I didn’t get too excited, I’m just waiting on my check,” said the lucky winner, who has worked for the federal government for 42 years. He plans to use his prize to buy a new car and to spread the wealth to family and friends in need.
Also enjoying a bit of wealth because of the ticket’s sale is Redfish Liquors located at 4001 Falls Road. The Baltimore City business will receive a $500 bonus for its role in selling a winning Pick 5 ticket worth $50,000.
