Maryland Man Wins $50K Lottery Three Times In A Row After Repeatedly Playing The Same Number

A Maryland man won the same lottery game three times in less than a year. According to state lotto officials, the man won by playing the same number each time.

The unnamed 52-year-old, who chose to remain anonymous, won $150,000 in the last 11 months on Maryland’s Pick 5 game.

“Big Winner” Won $150K In Three Different Lottery Drawings Using The Same Numbers

For those interested in the lucky number, all three times, he bet on 48548.

The man was dubbed “Big Winner” for his good fortune. However, he credited his wife for the idea of using the same numbers and remaining consistent.

“It hit last year and it hit again,” he said in a press release from the state lottery’s office. “My wife said, ‘Let’s play this number’ and we keep winning with it.”

Lottery officials added that the man “believes that most winners stop playing after their lucky number is drawn and incorrectly think their number will never hit again.”

The outlet reports that the Waldorf resident and truck driver reportedly won his latest $50,000 on April 13 in the mid-day drawing.

That ticket was sold at Big Mouth Beer, Wine, and Liquor in Waldorf, per state lottery officials. Additionally, the store will earn a $500 bonus for selling the winning ticket.
