Flea Market Trip Leads to Bonus Match 5 Win

Baltimore man takes home $50,000 top prize

On the way to the flea market, a Baltimore man and his wife of 50 years stopped to pick up a Bonus Match 5 ticket. The retired mechanic didn’t know that this trip in particular would be life changing. When the couple checked their ticket later that evening, they were in complete shock to see that they were $50,000 richer thanks to the Bonus Match 5 drawing.

“I can certainly tell you that when I went to check my numbers, I was a little shocked to see that all of the numbers had matched,” he said. “And then I just looked at the ticket over and over to make sure I was seeing it right.”

The lucky winner plans to use the money to help his children financially as well as take a much needed vacation to Hawaii with his wife. The winning ticket was purchased at 2 Go Convenience & Deli, located at 9016 Washington Blvd. in Savage.
