Man Wins Lottery For The Third Time In A Year Using The Exact Same Numbers

lottery tickets man wins 50k three times


There have been a lot of mind-blowing stories about people winning the lottery multiple times.

One woman won $300,000 on her way home from collecting a $100,000 lottery prize. Another won $50,000 playing a scratch-off lottery game three times in three years.

Stories like those just don’t make any sense. The odds of winning a big prize playing the lottery should make multiple wins such as those almost impossible.

And yet, a man in Maryland just won his third $50,000 lottery prize in the span of 11 months.

Even crazier, he did by using the same numbers each time: 4-8-5-4-8.

“It hit last year and it hit again,” he told Maryland Lottery officials. “My wife said, ‘Let’s play this number’ and we keep winning with it.”

The 52-year-old returned to Lottery headquarters this week to claim his latest prize won in the April 13 midday drawing. He had placed a $1 straight bet on the number 48548, the same bet and number that won $100,000 on two tickets he purchased in the May 18, 2022 midday drawing.

The lucky lottery player also told Maryland Lottery officials that he believes most winners quit playing after their number is drawn and that their number will never win again. He doesn’t, and with good reason, obviously.

“I play the lottery all the time. You never know. You can’t win if you are not in it,” he added.

He doesn’t have to tell that to Cedric Bass of Kannapolis, North Carolina.

Bass, who had already won won $182,073 back in January, just won another $1 million prize playing a $10 VIP Platinum ticket.

Meanwhile, over in Massachusetts, Tricia Johnson won $100,000 twice and her son won another $100,000 in the span of just three weeks playing the exact same numbers.

She said after all those wins, “I can probably stop playing them now,” she said, “because I’m sure it won’t happen again.”

That guy in Maryland would certainly disagree.
