Lexington Park Woman Resumes Play Just in Time for $50K Prize

Wins Bonus Match 5 top prize during special promotion

Just last month, a St. Mary’s county woman decided to take a break from Bonus Match 5.  That all changed with the start of the Maryland Lottery’s Bonus Match 5 taxes-paid promotion, which prompted her to start playing again.

“I decided to play the same fortune cookie numbers that I used to play,” she told Lottery officials. “I knew those numbers would be lucky.” Although the 55-year-old has won before, this is her biggest win yet.  “This is a miracle!”

The lucky lady, who works in the childcare industry, discovered her win after receiving a text message with the winning numbers on Saturday.  Lottery players can sign up for text alerts with winning Lottery numbers here.

With her prize, the winner plans to pay bills, help her family and take a vacation. Through July 8, the Maryland Lottery will pay the estimated taxes on all Bonus Match 5 top prizes. During that time, players also have the chance to double their winnings.  Randomly, Bonus Match 5 tickets will have the word “Doubler” across the top of the ticket.  If that ticket is a winner, the prize will automatically be doubled.

The winning ticket was purchased at 2000 Liquors, located at 21800 N Shangrila Dr. in Lexington Park.
