Oct. 11 (UPI) — A Maryland man who collected a $ 16,160 lottery jackpot is no stranger to lottery officials — it was his fifth major win.
Paul McDonald, 48, of Bowie, told Maryland Lottery officials he only plays the RaceTrax digital horse racing game, and the strategy paid off when a ticket he bought from the Corner Lounge in Upper Marlboro scored a $ 16,160 jackpot.
He scored the win by placing a Superfecta Box bet with the Bonus multiplier option on the numbers of 1, 4, 7 and 11.
McDonald has hit big RaceTrax jackpots four other times, most recently a $ 194,188 prize last year that was the third largest in the history of the game.
“My friends all tell me that I need to teach a Racetrax class and show everyone how to play,” McDonald said.
