MR REGULAR WINS AGAIN AND SCOOPS $50,000 PLAYING POWERBALL
A man from Rockville in Maryland, USA, regularly plays lottery games and has had some luck in the past with a string of wins. He’s just had his biggest win to date with a $50,000 win in the September 19 Powerball draw.
The Powerball winner has asked to remain anonymous and in true Maryland lottery style, he’s known by a nickname just like ‘Better Late than Never’ who also won $50,000 playing the Powerball draw. A woman nicknamed ‘Lucky Lady’ lived up to that name when winning $50,000 on a 100X the Cash scratchcard.
As the Rockville resident regularly plays the Pick 3, Pick 4, Mega Millions, Cash4Life, Powerball and the occasional scratchcard game, it’s no surprise his nickname is ‘Mr. Regular.’ The 71-year-old prefers lottery games as it’s easy to claim prizes and he often saves up his winning tickets up to $600 at any lottery retailer and up to $5,000 at the lottery retailers who participate in the Expanding Cashing Authority Program.
“You just walk in and get your money,” he said. ‘Mr. Regular’ is no stranger to getting lottery wins. The week before his big Powerball win he won $100 and several years ago he scooped a $5,000 prize. ‘Roque II’ from Maryland, USA, re-invested his previous winnings and won a $150,000 Powerball prize in the September 15 draw.
This time ‘Mr. Regular’ had a much larger win and in order to claim his $50,000 Powerball prize which was won with a ticket purchased from the Kwik Stop Beer, Wine & Deli in Rockville, he had to go to the Maryland Lottery HQ in Baltimore on September 20.
The grandfather of three now plans to use his Powerball winning to buy some surprises for his family and extended family members. Canadians James and Rita Manthorne said they’d be spoiling their grandchildren after their $675,000 Set For Life win. Margaret and Gerald Stewart, also from Canada, used numbers that were their grandchildren’s birthdays and walked off with a $1.7m Lotto 6/49 windfall.
The Maryland players Powerball ticket matched four of the main balls and the Powerball in the September 19 draw. The numbers players had to match in that draw were 04-39-48-50-51 and the Powerball 11. The jackpot in that draw was $161.4m. The jackpot has continued to rollover since that draw and on Wednesday September 26 the top prize is a massive $193m.
