In an instant, a Belcamp man became a jackpot winner, matching all 5 numbers selected in the Maryland Lottery’s Bonus Match 5 drawing with the numbers he chose on his regular ticket for Tuesday, October 25th. “I saw the numbers on the television crawl on WBAL,” the winner said. “I looked down on my ticket and – Bango – there were the numbers.”
The 68-year-old has been playing those same numbers for quite a while, having chosen the numbers randomly over a year ago. Other Bonus Match 5 players may want to study his example as the strategy has been profitable for him in the past. “I also won the $50,000 top-prize in 2002,” he explained.
When asked about his plans, the man said his winnings would make his life more comfortable. “It’s hard to live off of a fixed income. I intend to stretch this as far as I can.” The winning ticket was purchased at the 7-11 convenience store located on Pulaski Highway in Abingdon.
