Harford County Man Claims $50,890 Bonus Match 5 Prize

Purchased his ticket from the Express Deli Mart in Edgewood

An Edgewood man is quietly celebrating a Bonus Match 5 win worth $50,890, thanks to one very lucky ticket. Each of the nine game boards on the ticket was a winner in the July 16 drawing, with prize amounts ranging from $15 to $50,000.

“I pick numbers that I haven’t seen pop out in a while,” he explained. “I was watching the results and knew the numbers sounded familiar.”

Sure enough, the numbers for the July 16 drawing matched those he selected several days earlier. The Harford County resident found his Lottery luck at the Express Deli Mart located at 625 Edgewood Road in Edgewood.

“I bought the ticket for four draws,” he said. “This happened on the last day of the ticket.”

The happy winner plans to continuing playing but probably won’t select the same numbers anytime soon, he said.

Still mulling over what to do with his win, the man told Lottery officials that he plays to pay off his bills before enjoying any frivolous spending. For selling the lucky ticket, the Express Deli Mart will receive a $500 bonus from the Maryland Lottery.
