$100,000 Fantasy Comes True for Mechanicsville WomanThursday, June 30th, 2011
Wins Top Prize Playing Fantasy Fortune Scratch-Off
Still in disbelief, Marion Watts came into Lottery Headquarters to claim her $100,000 Fantasy Fortune prize. While eating lunch at one of her favorite restaurants, she cashed in a $25 scratch-off win and decided to play another $10 scratch game. She found out later that evening that she was a big winner. “I didn’t believe it even after seeing it! I had my husband check it and even put on my glasses and used a magnifying glass,” she said excitedly. This win made Watts especially happy because her biggest prize prior to it was $2,100, which she won back in the 70’s, when the Maryland Lottery was first created.
So far, Marion has only told her husband of 53 years. The two are about to go on vacation to Myrtle Beach and the lucky winner would like to plan a family cruise to the Caribbean with some of her winnings. She also plans to give some cash to her two sons and grandchild.
The winning ticket was purchased at St. Mary’s Landing, located on 29935 Three Notch Rd. in St. Mary’s County.
