Owings Mills Woman Takes $50,000 Top Prize
Eight years ago Nancy Swierk, who normally plays Keno, decided to purchase a Bonus Match 5 ticket and won the game’s $50,000 top prize. Last week, on a whim she decided to play that game again, and once again matched all five numbers for the top prize.
The physical therapist was playing Keno with her coworkers after work last Thursday, as she regularly does. Before leaving, she decided to buy a Bonus Match 5 ticket. After watching the drawing on TV and seeing her numbers, Nancy excitedly called the winning numbers line and checked the internet just to make sure she was a winner. Once Nancy confirmed that she was $50,000 richer, she called the owner of the store to tell him the good news.
The 52-year-old plans to repair her dishwasher and car, pay some bills, and spoil her two “soon-to-be-fat” cats. The winning ticket was sold at Lakeside Liquors, located at 9229 Lakeside Blvd in Owings Mills.
