There’s a popular saying that ‘you have to be in it to win it’ and on March 30, Kisha Bell from Baltimore in Maryland, USA, had bought a ticket for the Bonus Match 5 draw and she won the game’s $50,000 top prize.
That’ s not always been the case though, because several years ago her lucky numbers came up in the Bonus Match 5 draw, but to her horror, she hadn’t bought a ticket and the big prize didn’t head in her direction. The lucky winner says she hasn’t had any major wins before and sometimes it does take a while to get that dream win. Not so, another player in Maryland who with his second purchase won a $50,000 scratch card prize.
The 43-year-old could hardly believe her eyes when this time her numbers matched the winning numbers and she had bought a ticket for the draw from Carlton’s Liqours in Baltimore. Her Bonus Match 5 win came on a quick pick ticket unlike another $50,000 Bonus Match 5 winner from Maryland who used birthdays and anniversaries.
Kisha works as an office manager for a local doctor’s office and believes this big Bonus Match 5 win has cured her “winning-itis” and her “condition” has improved dramatically! Not quite believing she’d won, the Maryland resident wasn’t keen on making a mistake as Kevin Young from Virginia, USA, nearly did when initially thinking his $7.5m Mega Millions jackpot winning ticket was a loser.
It being the weekend, Kisha couldn’t claim her winnings until Monday leading to a day or so when she just couldn’t relax. “It was too long,” said the happy Bonus Match 5 winner as she confessed she hadn’t slept much all at the weekend as the nervous energy from holding her winning ticket grew and grew.
It’s the latest big win in the state of Maryland, USA, after an anonymous woman also won a $50,000 Bonus Match 5 top prize. Also celebrating was a man from Cecil County in Maryland, who scooped $50,000 playing the Powerball draw.
The Bonus Match 5 winner says that she will use some of her winnings to pay off her bills and possibly have a holiday in Las Vegas. That’s just like Englishman Simon Cookson who headed off to Las Vegas after being part of a £60,00 EuroMillions winning syndicate.
