Bahamas Trip Moves from To-Do List to Current Project for Lottery WinnersMonday, July 8th, 2013
Couple wins $50,000 on Double Dollar Fortune Scratch-Off
The duo found their fortune after buying three scratch-off tickets. Following their lucky routine, the husband waited until he was relaxing at home with a nice, cool drink before they began checking the tickets. To his surprise, the second Double Dollar Fortune ticket he checked revealed their $50,000 win.
“It’s a great feeling,” the self-employed carpenter told Lottery officials. His wife, who handles data entry for his business, says she didn’t believe him when he first told her they won. They’ve played the Lottery for 14 years, winning small amounts with Mega Millions and Powerball, but never anything with four zeros. By the time they told their story at Maryland Lottery Headquarters in Baltimore, she was a believer.
What will they do with their winnings? They plan to take a long-awaited vacation to the Bahamas. They also plan to keep buying scratch-offs at the retailer where they purchased their winning ticket. Their new lucky store is the Giant Eagle at 1275 West Patrick St. in Frederick.
