Heeding Son’s Scratch-off Advice Puts $50,000 in Papa’s Pocket

September 18th, 2014

Essex man wins with Maryland Lottery’s $1 Million Fortune scratch-off

158-$1-Million-Fortune-ITVM_P1-AquaListening to his son’s advice about how to win big with $20 scratch-off tickets rocketed a retail clerk from Essex right into the Maryland Lottery’s Winner’s Lounge. The excited novice player just claimed a $50,000 second-tier prize on a $1 Million Fortune scratch-off.

The pleased papa happily explained his son’s winning suggestion. While many players have theories on how to play to win, his son’s idea actually put a winning ticket in his hand.

“My son told me when I get a $20 scratch-off, check the ticket number for a 20 or a 21,” said the Baltimore County resident, grinning. “He says those are normally winners.”

With that theory in mind, the lucky player checked out the scratch-offs on display when he went to the Wise Avenue Citgo in Baltimore to buy his Pick 3 and Pick 4 tickets. He noticed that the next scratch-off displayed for the $1 Million Fortune game was number 21, so he bought that ticket.

However, the 54-year-old player almost forgot to scratch the ticket. He placed it in the side door of his car and proceeded to go home and do chores. When he remembered the ticket, he scratched it off and was surprised to see the second-tier prize. “Holy (cow), I just won $50,000,” he exclaimed!

The lucky man hid the ticket in a lock box, where it stayed safe until he could get a day off from work to claim the prize. He plans to use the winnings to pay off debt, travel and build his savings account. His lucky Baltimore County store is the Wise Avenue Citgo located at 220 Wise Avenue in Baltimore.

Ultimate Girls’ Getaway Weekend Leads to $50,000 Lottery Win

Amanda Kapaldo - Monopoly_web

Sun, surf and scratch-off fun in Ocean City put a $50,000 winning Monopoly instant ticket into the hands of Amanda Kapaldo of Pennsylvania.

Ocean City visitor finds top-prize-winning Monopoly scratch-off

A girls’ weekend and a wedding brought Amanda Kapaldo to Ocean City for good times with friends and end-of-summer fun in the sun and surf. Never in her wildest dreams did she think she would go home $50,000 richer after scratching off a Maryland Lottery Monopoly instant ticket!

Amanda and a friend had decided to stop at a 7-Eleven in Ocean City on their way back from dropping a friend’s car seat off at their hotel. Together, the pair went into the store and bought a few of the Lottery’s low-priced instant tickets. They both scratched their tickets in the store, winning a few dollars.

“We probably won something like $6,” said her friend, who accompanied the happy winner to Lottery headquarters in Baltimore to claim the big prize. “Then, Amanda pulled out $10 and asked for two Monopoly tickets. I just looked at her and said, ‘Look at you, Miss Moneybags.’ ”

With the Monopoly scratch-offs in hand, Amanda and her friend walked next door to a pub for a drink.

“I started scratching the ticket and didn’t really know what I was looking for,” Amanda explained. “I saw the treasure chest symbol and I saw the prize, but I wasn’t sure.”

In shock, the 30-year-old gripped her friend and showed her the ticket. Together, the two quickly left the pub and went back to their hotel.

Amanda stopped by Maryland Lottery Headquarters in Baltimore on the way home to Imperial, Pennsylvania, where she lives with her husband. She plans to put the money toward the new house they recently purchased.

Are you heading to Ocean City one last time before winter? Check out the 7-Eleven located at 11911 Coastal Highway to see if it will be your lucky store, too. For selling the top-prize-winning ticket, the retailer will receive a $500 bonus from the Lottery.

Empty Gas Tank Fuels Potomac Man’s $10,000 Lottery Win

September 18th, 2014

Claims top prize on 10x Cash instant ticket

10x CashA construction manager’s need to fill his empty gas tank on the way home from work fueled his spur-of-the-moment purchase of a Maryland Lottery 10x Cash scratch-off. That decision, made as he paid for his fuel, gave him both a full gas tank and a full wallet.

When he scratched off the ticket, the Potomac man discovered a long line of matches that added up to the game’s top prize of $10,000. The frequent casino visitor told Lottery officials that he is thrilled with his win.

“I don’t play Lottery games too often, just every once in a while,” said the 65-year-old. “I’ve won bigger pots at the casino so I wasn’t shocked, just very, very happy.”

That empty gas tank put him in the right place – the Olney Shell station at 18040 Georgia Avenue – at the right time.

“I went in to pay and there were the Lottery tickets,” said the Montgomery County resident. “I closed my eyes, spun my hand around and pointed and came up with this one.”

He plans to dedicate his winnings to reducing debt. The lucky winner also plans to focus a bit more on Lottery products when he is in a gaming mood. “Maybe I’ve used up my Lottery luck, but maybe I haven’t,” he said.

Winners have claimed 83 of the 85 top prizes on the 10x Cash game, leaving two $10,000 winners up for grabs at Lottery retailers. The $10 game also has plenty of other prizes left ranging from $10 to $1,000.

Hold’ Em Poker Scratch-off Delivers $100,000 Winning Hand

September 17th, 2014

Gaithersburg man claims top prize on Maryland Lottery instant ticket

157-Hold-Em-Poker-ITVM_P1-redA Gaithersburg man’s persistence in playing the Maryland Lottery Hold ‘Em Poker scratch-off paid off in spades, diamonds and clubs to give him the $100,000 top prize on the instant ticket.

The 45-year-old banking industry employee prefers to play the scratch-off version of Poker than the playing-card version. He’s won small amounts on the $5 ticket in the past at his favorite Lottery retailer, Diamond Deli in Gaithersburg, so he kept playing in hopes of winning big. The father of four teens was so excited and surprised when he suspected his ticket was a top winner that he verified its status at two retailers. The second store directed him to Lottery headquarters in Baltimore to claim his prize.

“I was very excited,” said the immigrant, who came to the United States more than two decades ago and is a U.S. citizen. So far, he has only shared the good news with one of his friends and plans to keep the win a secret from everyone else except one more very important person in his life – his wife! Paying off bills and treating his family are tops on his list of things to do with his winnings, he said.

For selling the winning scratch-off, Diamond Deli at 504 East Diamond Ave. in Gaithersburg will receive a $1,000 bonus from the Maryland Lottery. One $100,000 winning ticket and eight $5,000 second-tier winning tickets remain in Maryland stores for Lottery players to discover.

Powerball Jackpot Chasers Stumble into $30,000 Prize

September 17th, 2014

Happy Eastern Shore residents added Power Play to their ticket

A jackpot-chasing couple from Caroline County who fell one number shy of achieving a major Powerball win are still happy Maryland Lottery winners! The surprised pair matched four numbers in the Sept. 13 drawing plus the Powerball and had Power Play on their lucky ticket. Adding Power Play tripled their prize to $30,000!

“Oh, we were so close,” said the 58-year-old wife. “The number that came out was a 37, we had a 31.” Her 69-year-old husband proclaimed, “We will be back with a jackpot win!”

Their lucky Powerball ticket bought on at a Dash In on the Eastern Shore is one of two in Maryland that matched four numbers plus the Powerball and had the 3x Power Play multiplier. No one won the jackpot, which rolled to $171 million with a cash option of $102 million for the Wednesday, Sept. 17 drawing. Maryland saw 13,530 Powerball winners in the drawing with prizes ranging from $4 to $30,000.

The lucky Henderson residents say they only play jackpot games and they play them every week. On Saturday, the husband spent $15 on the Quick Pick ticket at Dash In #14331 located at 401 Thompson’s Creek Road in Stevensville.

The couple could not believe their good fortune when they won. After double-checking the ticket, they signed the back of it and put it away until they could claim their prize at Lottery headquarters. The self-employed Lottery players, who plan to retire soon, said they will save their prize and add the winnings to their nest egg.
