According to a recent release by the Maryland Lottery, the unnamed man first won in May 2022 after buying two different tickets for the same draw, yielding $100,000 in prize money. The latest win came this month. The retailer that sells the winning ticket in Maryland also receives a $500 bonus.

You can’t win if you are not in it.”

The lucky person is going by the ‘Big Winner’ nickname as he wishes to stay anonymous. In a statement following his most recent win, the Charles County local outlined his belief that many winners stop playing after their lucky numbers come up trumps once. Commenting on his approach, the truck driver said: “I play the Lottery all the time. You never know. You can’t win if you are not in it.”

The ‘Big Winner’ plans to go on vacation with his wife using the winnings. He also outlined his interest in horse racing and playing the state lottery’s Racetrax game.
