Nonfiction Writer Turns New Page with Lottery Win

Baltimore woman claims $50,000 prize playing Bonus Match 5

A lucky Baltimore author just entered a new chapter in her life, thanks to a Bonus Match 5 ticket. After consistently playing the same sets of numbers over and over, the 60-year-old scored a storybook-style happy ending with a $50,000 top-prize Bonus Match 5 win.

The plot of her winning story began with a trip to M&J Discount Liquors in Baltimore, where the writer frequently buys Lottery tickets. After purchasing a $6 ticket right before the July 6 drawing, the lucky lady immediately reviewed her ticket. She got excited after seeing it matched three winning numbers. Then, those three matched numbers turned into five matched numbers and, at that point, the loyal player needed a second pair of eyes to confirm what she saw.

“I was very happy,” the lucky lady said of her win. She is in the process of buying her first house and said the much-needed windfall will help with that purchase. The writer also has four grandchildren who will benefit from her new fortune. In addition, she plans to put some of her windfall toward her latest literary endeavor.

Her lucky retailer, M&J Discount Liquors, is located at 5500 Park Heights Avenue in Baltimore City. The business will receive a $500 bonus from the Lottery for selling a top-prize winning Bonus Match 5 ticket. Our player won the game’s 27th top prize awarded in 2021.
