82-Year-Old Randallstown Woman Scratches Her Way to $50,000 PrizeMonday, July 25th, 2011
Wins $50,000 Top Prize on Instant Pick 3, Pick 4, Bonus Match 5 Scratch-off
Early this morning, a happy winner came in to Lottery Headquarters with her one of her sons in tow to claim her $50,000 prize on the Instant Pick 3, Pick 4, Bonus Match 5 ticket. The 82-year-old, who is a frequent scratch-off player, wasn’t sure how to react to her big win. “I scratched my ticket shortly after I bought it and was in total shock,” she said. “I take care of my disabled son. He and I play scratch-offs together each day. It’s nice entertainment for us,” she added. Despite being a veteran Lottery player, the winner was in disbelief and took her ticket back to the store just to be sure her eyes were not deceiving her. She was pleased to find that she was indeed $50,000 richer and quickly shared the good news with her family.
The woman intends to use the bulk of her windfall to continue to care for her son and do some home improvements. She also plans to give some cash to her children, grandchildren and great-grandchild. The winning ticket was purchased at Pimlico Check Cashing, located on 3538 Brenbrook Dr. in Randallstown.
