Cumberland Man Starts His Year with Big Cash Bonus

Claims $50,000 prize on Bonus Match 5 quick-pick ticket

Another happy camper in Western Maryland encountered Lottery luck as 2020 drew to a close. A Cumberland man won a $50,000 top prize playing Bonus Match 5 on New Year’s Eve.

The 80-year-old bought a $6 quick-pick ticket for one drawing and rang in the New Year as a big winner. The Dec. 31 drawing had the winning numbers of 4, 31, 32, 34 and 35; the Bonus Ball was 18. His ticket gave him nine lines of numbers to play and one was a perfect match!

The Allegany County resident found the ticket to his good fortune at South Cumberland Liquors located at 622 West Industrial Boulevard in Cumberland. The retailer also benefits from the lucky sale. The store will earn a $500 bonus from the Lottery for selling a top-prize winning Bonus Match 5 ticket.
