Dundalk Man Surprises Wife With $50,000 Trump Card Win

Trump CardA bit of exercise with his friends was all that was on the mind of a Dundalk man when he visited Eastpoint Mall this morning to do some walking.  His day, it turned out, would involve a little more excitement than he expected as well as a little more travelling – all the way to Lottery Headquarters to claim a $50,000scratch-off prize.

Today’s winner, a retired Bethlehem Steel electrician, plays lottery games often and has had moderate success over the years.  He bought a handful of instant tickets this morning from the American News stand and played them there at the mall among his fellow walkers.  “I scratched them and found a few small winners.  Then I came to the last ticket.”  That last one, Trump Card, was a particular favorite.  “I’d won with it a couple of times before.”  He scratched.  He looked.  He looked again.  He studied – and then all conversation at the table stopped with his announcement, “I don’t believe this.”

With the claiming paperwork behind him, the Dundalk winner had one more exciting job ahead of him.  “I’m heading home now to tell my wife the good news.  Her afternoon is about to get as exciting as my morning was.”

    I concur,it is quite disheartening,to continually read about all these “lucky” winners in the Balt city/co areas.I’m in Cecil County,I’ve NEVER won anything on these scratchoffs.

      RavenManiac: The geographic locations of our winners are random. There is no way to predict where the winners will be. However, research tells us that more winners come from areas of the State in which more people are playing. Therefore, areas in Maryland with higher populations will more likely produce more winners than lower populated areas. Please feel free to take a look at our winners stories from 2009 and 2010. There you’ll see that we have winners from all over the state. Thanks again for your inquiry. We appreciate hearing from our players.

      I am glad someone else sees what I see. Even though I know that we are not the only ones. Have a great day.

    THAT IS SO TRUE, BUT IF IT’S MEANT FOR YOU TO WIN, YOU WILL WIN REGARDLESS WHERE THE TICKETS ARE SOLD.

      That is true Michelle. But it appears that most of the big winnings are coming from one side of Maryland. Somebody knows what stack(s) has winning tickets; distribute them all over.
