Maryland Man Wins Lottery Using His Baby Brother’s License Plate Numbers


The anonymous Windsor Mill winner, who used the name ‘Big Fish’ to share his story, won the game’s ‘Pick 5’ prize, according to the Maryland Lottery. He placed eight 50-cent bets using his brother’s license plate numbers: 2, 6, 6, 6, and 4.

His chance was won in the March 29 draw. “Big Fish” is a frequent lottery player, the lottery said.

However, he was “totally surprised” by his victory. He told lottery officials he “doesn’t have specific plans for his prize” at the moment, but he could pay bills, pay for car maintenance or split some of the winnings with his five siblings.

The retailer where “Big Fish” purchased their winning ticket, Liberty Wine & Spirits, will also receive a $250 bonus.

The odds of winning the $25,000 prize in the “Pick 5” game are only 1 in 100,000, according to the lottery.
