Wins $50,000 Bonus Match 5 Top Prize
The Bonus Match 5 game produced a single top-tier $50,000 winner in Wednesday night’s drawing. Joël Allen of Pasadena and her sister arrived at Lottery headquarters on this sunny Monday morning smiling from ear to ear.
Joël Allen, a certified cognitive trainer, has been playing Bonus Match 5 for several weeks. Her dad, whom she calls “The Lottery King” makes a weekly run to purchase Lottery games for the family. The family typically purchases a variety of Lottery tickets and distributes them randomly to family members. After picking up her ticket from her dad, Joël settled in as usual to watch the evening drawing. She watched her numbers come up one at a time. Although the numbers were display as “big as day” on the television screen, Joël still did not believe she’d won. The next day, she and her sister headed to the store to get a printout. It finally sunk in; she was a $50,000 winner.
Because of Joël and her sister’s busy work schedule they decided to come in as early as possible on a Monday. Joël stated, “I’ve always dreamed of winning big.” This happy wife and mother says she will fix up her home, do a little shopping and save. The winning ticket was purchased at 5th Avenue Liquors, 508 South Crain Highway in Glen Burnie, Maryland.
