Wins a $250,000 prize playing Mega Millions

An Anne Arundel County man is celebrating his 55th birthday in style. Although he played Mega Millions last Friday, he didn’t check his ticket until yesterday, which happened to be his birthday. He received quite a birthday present when he found out he won a $250,000 second-tier prize.

“I’m just so excited,” he said. “I really think it hasn’t sunk in yet. This is one of the best birthdays ever!”

The lucky winner told Lottery officials that this win is the most he’s ever won. “Certainly, I’ve won $500 here and there, but I never expected anything this big,” said the construction worker.

With his prize, the winner plans to donate to charity, pay his mortgage, help family members and save the rest. The winning ticket was purchased at the High’s on West Central Avenue in Edgewater.

    That’s not rite I would tip the person that sold me a ticket that large I play bonus match 5 every day when I hit they get $1500 the person that sells the ticket like his I give them $3000 easy but I guess that’s just me.

      Charlesriley87, I agree and I have tipped. It’s just common courtesy to the person who sold you the ticket. Cashiers don’t make a lot of money. Most are only minimum wage or a bit over.

    OMG PEOPLE KILL ME. YOU KNOW THAT EXPRESSION, “STOP LOOKING AND YOU WILL FIND IT OR IT WILL FIND YOU”? HOW EVER IT GOES; MAYBE YOU NEED TO STOP LOOKING FOR A TIP AND MAYBE YOU WILL GET TIPPED. SERIOUSLY, IT WORKED FOR ME; ONLY I WAS LOOKING FOR A MEANINGFUL RELATIONSHIP THAT WOULD LEAD TO MARRIAGE. E STOPPED LOOKING AND DECIDED TO JUST LIVE MY LIFE JUST LIKE THAT THE LOVE OF MY LIFE FOUND ME. JUST DO THE JOB YOU WERE HHIRED TO DO TO THE BEST OF YOUR ABILITY AND APPRECIATE YOUR CUSTOMERS AND YOU NEVER KNOW JUST WHEN YOU REALLY NEawED SOMETHING YOU’LL GET IT. CHEERS!

    Congrats to you sir. I play the lottery every day and why do people expect you to tip them when you win? Nobody tips us when we lose.
