Baltimore Woman has ‘Bonus’ Win

Takes home $50,000 playing Bonus Match 5

A Baltimore bus driver likes to stop every morning before work to pick up a coffee and a print out of the previous evening’s Maryland Lottery results. Her typical morning routine was disrupted when she realized the Bonus Match 5 ticket she had purchased the day before was worth $50,000.

The 56-year-old resident of Baltimore’s Edmonson neighborhood was stunned when she realized that her ticket matched the Bonus Match 5 winning numbers. While many players may credit their win to luck or fate, this lucky winner knew that her late mother was looking out for her.

She sent a ‘thank you’ skyward for the blessing while thinking about her mother, who was a big fan of the Lottery before she passed. “I figured she pulled some strings up there to make this all happen,” she told officials.

The winner has been saving up to buy a new home for the past several months and can now move forward with her plans. She’ll continue to get her Bonus Match 5 tickets from the Shell Mini Market at 4598 Edmondson Avenue.
