A Baltimore grandmother has won $50,000 on the Bonus Match 5 lottery, all thanks to her children and grandchildren’s birthdays, and her mother’s ticket purchasing.
The lucky winner told lottery officials that in early February she asked her mother to pick her up a Bonus Match 5 ticket for the seven draws across February 10th to the 16th. The 50-year-old lottery winner always plays the same numbers, because they are the ages of her children and grandchildren. A Mega Millions winner from Virginia won $1 million thanks to her family’s birthdays, while a Scottish UK Lotto player won almost £600,000 because of a combination of his grandchildren’s ages.
On February 14th, one line of her winning ticket matched numbers 4, 6, 10, 24, and 39, and the Maryland Lottery winner said that it’s been a long time coming. “I finally did it!” the Bonus Match 5 winner told Maryland Lottery officials. “I have been playing those numbers for the last five years and yesterday was my day! It has been a long time in the making for my special numbers to come out.” A couple from Nova Scotia in Canada who recently won over $1.7 million on the Lotto 649 used the birthdates of their three grandchildren and their son when they won their prize.
Recently another Baltimore lottery player won $50,000 on the Bonus Match 5 lottery, and just like that previous winner, the most recent Baltimore winner, who didn’t reveal any further information about herself as she claimed her $50,000 Bonus Match 5 prize from Maryland Lottery officials, has already decided how she’s going to spend her prize. “I cannot wait to share my winnings with my family,” she said, and her son, who visited Maryland Lottery headquarters with her, couldn’t help but smile as he expressed how pleased he was for his mother. A EuroMillions winner from England also planned to share his £1 million with the rest of his family.
The retailer which sold the winnings ticket was a 7-Eleven in Montgomery Park Business Centre in Baltimore, across the street from where the winner’s mother words, and so it was easy for her to pop across and buy the tickets. The store itself will also receive a $500 bonus from the Maryland Lottery as a reward for selling the winner Bonus Match 5 ticket.
