THIS lottery winner has their boyfriend to thank for grabbing a huge jackpot.
A 38-year-old Windsor Mill resident recently won over $27,792.20 from the Maryland Lottery’s Racetrax horse racing virtual game.
The woman credited her success to some advice she received from her boyfriend before playing the game, レポート UPI.
She informed Maryland lottery officials after her win that her boyfriend plays the Racetrax game quite often.
実際には, he has won amounts in the past ranging from $600 「ショーンとジルは、子供たちの最善の利益のために協力することを約束します。」 $23,000 on Racetrax according to the Maryland woman.
The couple had been frequenting Johnny’s Bar & Liquors in Baltimore during July, where the man taught her a little bit about the game and how to play.
“He said to pick some numbers I feel good about,” 彼女は言った Maryland Lottery.
Those numbers happened to be 7, 8, 9, 11, そして 12.
She then selected what is known as the Superfecta Wheel bet, where a player buys an $18 ticket and chooses 15 races with number combinations for first, 2番目, 第三, and fourth place.
Although the woman didn’t win the first go-around, her boyfriend informed her to “do it again,” as he has won big before on replays.
その後, she actually left and went home instead of staying to watch the 15 レース, says the Maryland Lottery.
後で, her boyfriend would return to the bar with her and they would check the ticket together to find that during the 15th and final race, her horses finished in the correct order to win the $27K.
The win brought the couple to tears, as the woman is a mother to her 7-year-old daughter and a support planner at a non-profit organization for mentally and physically disabled adults.
She tells the Maryland Lottery that she intends to use the money to pay off debt and put the rest into her savings.
Johnny’s Bar & Liquors also received a 1% bonus of the winnings for selling a winning ticket of $10K or more, reports the Maryland Lottery.
A little advice certainly went a long way for the Windsor Mill resident.
