Winning the top prize for the D.C. Lottery’s DC 5 game was music to Melissa Johnson’s ears. For the mid-day drawing on New Years Eve, Johnson of Seat Pleasant, Maryland won $26,250 when she played the number on her My MAJIC 102.3 FM Club Card – 2-6-2-1-2.

“She screamed really loud” said Johnson’s daughter about the moment her mother realized that she had won the top prize plus an additional cash prize. Johnson placed a combination bet. She wagered .50 cents straight and .50 cents box. With the straight bet, she won the top prize of $25,000, and the box bet added $1,250 for a grand total of $26,250.

Excited about starting off the New Year with a D.C. Lottery win, Johnson also said, “I’m humble and grateful, “ before adding that her birthday is this week, and the win also serves as an early birthday present. Right now, she is planning an all girls trip to Texas with her two daughters. After that, she intends to be a good steward of her cash prize.

“Congratulations to Melissa Johnson of her DC 5 win. We are very excited for her and wish her the best in the New Year,” said the D.C Lottery and Charitable Games Control Board’s Executive Director Buddy Roogow.

Johnson bought her winning ticket at Skip’s Liquors, 405 61st, NE.
