A retired postman from Maryland has received the delivery of his life as he won $50,000 on the Bonus Match 5 lottery.
Lawrence Cator took home his $50,000 prize in a Bonus Match 5 drawing on August 18th, and the win took him by surprise. The occasional lottery player, from Lothian, Maryland, said that the $50,000 windfall was unexpected but exciting, as it was not often that he was the recipient of an exciting delivery! A nursing student from Manhattan was also only an occasional player when she won $1 million on the Mega Millions, while at the opposite end of the spectrum, another Maryland retiree finally won big on the Maryland Lottery after playing for 45 years.
The lucky winner worked for the US Postal Service for our four decades in the Washington DC area, and now he spends the majority of his time working for a commercial garden where he grows plants, flowers and shrubs for many different clients. He enjoys playing the occasional game of Bonus Match 5, but until this win he wouldn’t have called himself a big fan of the lottery. Someone who was a big fan of the lottery was a Maryland military retiree who won $40,000 on the Mega Millions after years of playing both multi-state lottery games.
The 65-year-old said that he was stunned when he pulled up the Bonus Match 5 results on his phone and saw that his ticket had matched five numbers. After conferring with his wife and checking and rechecking the numbers several times, he began to celebrate his $50,000 win for real. A group of couriers from Sheffield in England recently received a EuroMillions delivery worth £228,180.
The lucky Bonus Match5 winner said that he has previously won a few small prizes, but this is his largest by far. He hasn’t quite decided how to spend his windfall yet, but he said that he’d thinking of using it to make improvements around the house, add to his savings, and help his family. A man from British Columbia was determined to make home improvements after winning $500,000 on the Lotto 649, in fact so much so that he decided to build himself a new home.
Mr Cator bought his winning Bonus Match5 ticket from Lothian Service Centre, and the retailer received a $500 bonus from the Maryland Lottery for selling the winning ticket.
