ROSEDALE, MD—He’s a loyal Pick 4 player, the Rosedale man said, and even a $25,000 win on a free Pick 5 ticket won’t change that.

“I play the same numbers every day and I don’t switch it up,” said the Baltimore County resident. He is, nonetheless, happy to have won the $25,000 prize on a Lottery Try Pick 5 promotional ticket that popped out on June 4 with his Pick 4 tickets. The promotion, which ended June 5, randomly printed out 50-cent straight bet Pick 5 tickets when players bought tickets for any draw game.

“I was shocked,” the winner said. The 68-year-old says he has no plans for a celebration. “I might go out for dinner,” he said.

As for the total score, “I’m going to put it in the bank. That’s the No. 1 thing.”

Sharing in his good luck is the Quality BP gas station at 7500 Pulaski Highway in Rosedale where he won the hot ticket. The store receives a bonus of $250, equal to 1 percent of the prize, for its role in his lucky win.
