Player Uses License Plate Numbers from Tesla for Pick 5 Win

Carroll County man claims $50,000 prize on $1 straight bet

Our latest Pick 5 winner is quite the car buff. The Carroll County resident currently owns three vehicles and uses their license plate numbers for his Pick 5 bets. Just one week ago, he played the license plate numbers from his Tesla and is now celebrating a $50,000 win.

The truck driver bought his lucky ticket at Liquor Barn located at 520 East Baltimore Street in Taneytown. He frequently goes there to buy Lottery tickets. On a Wednesday morning, he played 56843 straight for $1 in that day’s midday and evening drawings. Just after the midday drawing, he checked for a win and let out a joyful scream after learning that his Tesla’s license plate just earned him a $50,000 prize.

The happy player shared the news with his wife and son. His immediate plans for his winnings are to pay off bills in preparation for retirement in July. In retirement, he plans to continue his hobbies of home and garden projects.

His lucky Lottery retailer, Liquor Barn, will receive a $500 bonus from the Lottery for selling the $50,000 winning Pick 5 ticket.
