Baltimore City Man Wins $50,000 Playing Bonus Match 5

Lucky winner wins by playing favorite numbers

A Baltimore City resident wasted no time claiming a $50,000 Bonus Match 5 prize he won on Saturday. The lucky player enjoyed his weekend, but made sure his first stop on Monday was Lottery Headquarters.

The 72-year-old occasional player was running errands on Saturday when he decided to play Bonus Match 5. He enjoys playing that game from time to time and always picks his own numbers. When he made it back home that evening, he settled in and waited for the Lottery’s Evening numbers to be drawn.

The government employee put away his ticket and went about the rest of his weekend as usual.  He did not share his good news with anyone, keeping it top secret.

On Monday, he discreetly claimed the $50,000 prize. He told Lottery Officials that he plans to pay bills with his winnings.

The fortunate player found his luck at Chesapeake Liquors, located at 6720-C Governor Ritchie Hwy. in Glen Burnie. For selling a top-tier winning ticket, the retailer will receive a $500 bonus from the Lottery.
