Upper Marlboro woman wins $100k on Pick 5 lottery ticket


7UPPER MARLBORO, MD – An Upper Marlboro woman claimed her $100,000 lottery prize this week in Baltimore after matching all 5 numbers in the Pick 5 lottery.

According to the Maryland Lottery, the 54-year-old found her lucky win at E&C Mid Atlantic in Bowie, where she often goes to buy Lottery games.

“She’s played Pick 5 for the past year and consistently used a number combination involving her birth date,” the Maryland Lottery said today. “This time around was no different. In fact, the lucky lady bought two tickets and placed a $1 straight bet on both for the March 14 evening drawing.”

The Prince George’s County woman currently works as a government contractor. She plans to use her winnings to put a down payment on a house and buy her son a car. When she’s not working or playing Lottery games, the lucky lady enjoys line dancing and spending time with family members.

E&C Mid Atlantic will receive a $1,000 total bonus from the Lottery for its role in selling two $50,000-winning Pick 5 tickets.
