A man from Easton, Maryland won $400, then $50,000, from Pick 5 Lotto tickets - both within 24 hours.
He's 79-years-old and said that people treat their lottery bets "like a relationship," and said, "You gotta be serious about your plays." He uses a method to pick his numbers and he plays them many times in different variations. He bought his ticket from R&R Beer, Wine & Liquor and chose numbers 4, 2, 3, 5, and 7. He said he knew, before leaving the store, that he was a big winner.
But his wife was certainly surprised! She was still celebrating his first $400 prize when he won $50,000! She said that the weekend before her husband won, he was talking about what bills he would pay with lottery winnings. The lotto winner said he would indeed pay off bills with his prize and also give some of his winnings to his children.
