US-based Filipino Edgardo Antido won the $50,000 lottery prize in UltraLotto 6/58 in Maryland.
Antido, 59, a resident of Fort Washington, bagged the top prize in the Bonus Match 5 using the similar winning numbers in the Philippines’ UltraLotto 6/58 October 9 draw.
“I watched the drawing from October 9 for UltraLotto and decided to use those same numbers to play Bonus Match 5,” Antido told Maryland Lottery.
The winning combination for Tuesday’s draw was 12-16-46-03-38-36. Antido used the same numbers, except 46, to play Bonus Match 5 on October 10.
Antido told no one about his win until he told his friends about his winning the following day, and accompanied him to the lottery headquarters to claim his prize.
He said he will use the prize for a vacation and put the rest in the bank.
