A New Game Pays Off for Woodlawn Truck Driver [VIDEO]Friday, June 8th, 2012
Wins $100,000 Playing Hot Cash Casino
Michael Chestnut is a man of routines. A truck driver, he often finds himself carrying the same cargos along the same routes, delivering them to the same destinations. A departure from the usual worked out very well for him yesterday, though.
Part of Mr. Chestnut’s routine is the Maryland Lottery – instant tickets, to be precise. He plays most days, he told officials, buying tickets from stores along his route. “I stopped in to cash in a winner with plans to get the same ticket again because I’d been lucky with it,” he reported. “But I saw this one (Hot Cash Casino), a game I hadn’t seen before. So I got it instead.” Michael returned home and was pleased to see, upon scratching his ticket, a club symbol which multiplies the prize by ten. He hadn’t, though, scratched the corresponding dollar amount. “I always scratch the dollar part last,” he said. When he saw the $100,000 prize he was floored. “I have got to be reading this wrong,” he said, over and over.
Michael’s lucky store is the 7-11 at 620 Reisterstown Road in Baltimore. He has no immediate plans for his winnings.
