A lottery player who won $50,000 on Maryland’s Bonus Match 5 lottery is set to celebrate his 70th birthday in style.
The lottery winner, who is turning 70 later this month, won his $50,000 on the Bonus Match 5 lottery drawing on July 8th, and told lottery officials that he bought his winning ticket when he stopped off at a store to buy a coffee and a doughnut. The anonymous winner is from Timonium and bought his ticket from a supermarket in Hunt Valley. A man from Delaware was celebrating his daughter’s first birthday when he won $83,000 on the Multi-Win Lotto, while a man from Ontario in Canada had just celebrated his 65th birthday when he found himself a $1 million Lotto Max winner.
“When I got there, I was a little irritated because the supermarket was closing earlier than usual,” the retiree told Maryland Lottery officials. “I decided to hurry up and put my Bonus Match 5 numbers in before they closed.” Recently we told you about a transportation driver from Washington D.C. who won $50,000 on the Bonus Match 5 lottery in Maryland.
In his rush, the lottery player decided to buy a Quick Pick ticket, and he carried on with his day. A few days later, the Maryland man checked his Bonus Match 5 ticket against the winning numbers online, and he said that when he realised how lucky his ticket had been, he had the shock of his life.
“I couldn’t believe what I was seeing,” he told Maryland Lottery officials. “I must have looked at the ticket a dozen times juts to see if I had really won.” The Bonus Match 5 winner continued to say that winning has given him a great feeling, and he feels like he has a little more security in his life now thanks to his extra money in the bank. A couple from England said that they were delighted to have financial security for the future after winning £18 million on the UK Lotto.
“I think I’ll take my wife out to dinner tonight to celebrate,” the Maryland man added. “I may plan a nice little trip later to Rehoboth, as well. This is such an awesome feeling.” A man from Sydney in Australia won his $1.4 million while already out at a celebratory dinner for his grandson.
