Sandwich Combo Order Satisfies Hunger for Lottery Win

October 24th, 2014

James and Michelle Stein - I Heart Crossword_web (1)Placing an order for a sandwich and I Heart Crossword scratch-off combo delivered a $30,000 tasty top prize to James and Michelle Stein of Edgewood.

Couple claims $30,000 I Heart Crossword top prize

A barbeque sandwich and scratch-off order certainly satisfied an Edgewood couple’s hunger for a heart-healthy Maryland Lottery win – for now!

The Liquor Pump in Baltimore delivered a $30,000 winning order to James and Michelle Stein after she requested the sandwich and an I Heart Crossword scratch-off. The Harford County resident scratched her ticket in the store and soon realized that she got her $3 scratch-off investment back 10,000 times over.

Overwhelmed and excited, the mother of two called her husband James and asked if he were sitting down. James, an avid Maryland Lottery player, buys tickets for Mega Millions three to four times a week. “I just told her to relax,” the 50-year-old said. When she arrived home with the ticket in hand, the two of them reviewed the scratch-off 10 times to make sure they had won.

The excitement continued even after they got on the road to Lottery headquarters in Baltimore. They endured several terrifying moments en route because Michelle misplaced the ticket in the car. They did find it, of course, but only after fearing the $30,000 top-prize ticket was forever lost!

Michelle, who owns a cleaning company, plans to buy a new carpet and put some of the winnings into savings. James, a construction worker of 32 years, wants to buy a new pipe for his wood-burning stove. Their sons may also benefit from the win, they said.

Want to visit Michelle’s lucky store? The Liquor Pump is located at 8535 Old Harford Road in Baltimore. For selling the winning ticket, the retailer will receive a $300 bonus from the Lottery.

Father & Son Team Scores $1 Million Scratch-off Win

October 22nd, 2014

Claim top prize on Lucky Millionaire instant ticket

Lucky MillionaireLife-changing Lottery luck came to a scratch-off playing father-and-son team from northern Montgomery County, who just won the $1 million top prize on the Maryland Lottery’s Lucky Millionaire instant ticket.

The unexpected win will enable the father to pay off his mortgage and give the 20-something son, who commutes to work in Virginia and lives at home with his parents, the finances to afford his own place.

The men only buy tickets as a team if they happen to be together at a Lottery retailer. On the day that good fortune came their way, the winning duo stopped at Upcounty Fine Wine & Beer at 23229 Stringtown Road in Clarksburg. The 56-year-old retired father bought $10 in Powerball tickets and planned to spend $10 on scratch-offs. The son, who works as an information technology desktop technician, chipped in another $10 so they could split a $20 scratch-off.

They had no particular ticket in mind for their purchase, the son said, so fate guided their selection of the Lucky Millionaire scratch-off. “It was just a $20 ticket that was there,” the son said. They scratched the ticket in the store and, seeing the $1 million win, left quietly without alerting the clerk or attracting attention. “I said to myself, ‘This can’t be right!’ ” the son said. “I had to look at it over and over again.”

They have shared their good news with close family members and plan to keep quiet about the win. For selling the top-prize ticket, the retailer will receive a $1,000 bonus from the Lottery. Only one $1 million top-prize ticket remains unclaimed in the game, which still has more than 200,000 prize-winning tickets worth $20 to $50,000 on sale at Lottery retailers.

October 22nd, 2014

Claims top prize on Sparkling 7s ticket

142-Sparking-7s-ITVMAlways double-check your Maryland Lottery tickets! A Westminster family is $100,000 richer after rechecking a pile of scratch-offs they thought were non-winners. A winning Sparkling 7s ticket sitting amongst the other scratch-offs was nearly trashed!

“My mom, who is 89 years old, gets the tickets and scratches them,” her daughter said. “I’ll go through them before she throws the non-winners away.”

Imagine her surprise when she discovered a $100,000 winner in the discard pile! The family was ecstatic and drove to Lottery headquarters in Baltimore to claim the top prize on the $10 game. This is the third time Lottery luck has greeted this family. The senior scratcher previously found two $50,000 winners.

The family is still deciding what to do with the winnings. “My mother will use it for her daily expenses,” her daughter said.

Are you looking for a new lucky spot to buy Maryland Lottery scratch-offs? Try this family’s retailer, Winfield Liquors, which is located at 1707 West Liberty Road in Westminster. For selling the winning ticket, the retailer will receive a $1,000 bonus. One top-prize-winning ticket and four $1,000 second-tier winning tickets remain on the Sparkling 7s scratch-off game.

Maryland Lottery Delivers Early Holiday Surprise to Scratch-off Player

October 21st, 2014

Paula Murphy - Nutcracker Cash Doubler_web

Paula Murphy of Timonium claimed the first $50,000 top prize on our new Nutcracker Cash Doubler scratch-off. Way to go!

Timonium woman wins $50,000 Nutcracker Cash Doubler top prize

Every Saturday, Paula Murphy of Timonium stops in at Padonia Liquors to purchase her weekly mix of Maryland Lottery draw game and scratch-off tickets.

The loyal player is always armed with research from the Lottery’s website. She learns which scratch-offs have top prizes remaining and whether there are new tickets in stores. Knowing the Lottery just distributed its holiday scratch-offs to Maryland retailers, the retiree took a chance on the new Nutcracker Cash Doubler ticket. This time, she won $50,000.

“Nobody is more surprised than me,” said the 64-year-old. “This is by far the most I have ever won!”

The happy surprise came after Paula got home. She methodically scratched the tickets, beginning with the lowest-priced ones. After revealing her win on the $5 ticket and double-checking it, the Baltimore County resident photographed the lucky scratch-off and sent the picture to a few friends.

In addition to investing and saving her winnings, Paula plans to share some of the prize with employees of Padonia Liquors at 51 Padonia Road in Timonium. In addition to her generous gift, the store will receive a $500 bonus from the Lottery for selling the top-prize ticket. There are still two top-prize tickets remaining in Maryland stores along with other prize winners ranging from $5 to $5,000.

“I’ve been going to that store for a long time and they have always been so nice to me,” the gracious winner said. “I’m excited to be able to give back to them.”

Claims $10,000 Deluxe Cash Crossword game prize

147-Deluxe-Cash-Crossword-ITVM_P1_purpleA Baltimore carpenter on a mission to pick up a movie to watch with his wife carved out a few extra minutes to grab a Maryland Lottery crossword scratch-off. The loyal player’s last-minute errand put a $10,000 winning ticket in his toolbox.

“I get a ticket just about every day,” said the 53-year-old. “If they have a crossword game, I grab it. They’re my all-time favorite.”

He stopped in at Jolly’s Food Mart at 1500 North Monroe Street in Baltimore, where he spotted the $5 Deluxe Cash Crossword instant ticket. The city resident bought it, scratched it off in the store and felt immediate relief when he saw the $10,000 win that will help pay family bills.

“My wife and I have been getting worried about them,” he said. After paying the most crucial bills, the happy winner plans to take his wife shopping for the wedding ring they were unable to afford.

Deluxe Cash Crossword, which arrived in the stores in April, still has four $50,000 top-prize-winning tickets remaining in Maryland stores for discovery along with 13 $10,000 second-tier winning tickets.
