Baltimore Business Owners Claim $200,000 Powerball Win

Thursday, September 8th, 2011

Lottery officials waited today for Maryland’s first Powerball jackpot winner to show up at Lottery Headquarters. Although the winner of the $108.8 million Powerball jackpot still remains a mystery, another lucky couple arrived to claim their second-tier Powerball win of $200,000. The husband and wife, residents of Hanover, Pennsylvania and owners of a business in Baltimore, have long been fans of Maryland’s two big jackpot games.

It wasn’t until several days after the August 31st drawing that the couple realized that good fortune had visited them.  While getting tickets for the next Powerball drawing, the winner remembered that he had a few tickets in the car that he needed to check.  Realizing that he had won $200,000, hit him like a ton of bricks.

The $200,000 winner was purchased at Pipers Wine & Spirits, 4127 Hanover Pike in Manchester.  The couple will use their winnings as a college fund for their children.

    Congrats to the winners!! It sounds like you have a great plan for your winnings!!!  And for all the beggars…. see below….

    Are you serious????  You have the nerve to ask this couple for money….  If your electric is on it’s way of being disconnected, my suggestion is that you seek assistance from Social Services.  They have programs that will assist a family with these types of issues.   There are quite a few folks who are ill, struggling from day to day and need additional resources.  You really should be ashamed of yourselves.

    something the lottery should improve. scratch off machines should have some way to tell you that you are purchasing the last ticket or that there are no more ticket in that bin. i many times have put a twenty dollar bill in the machine assuming the ticket bin was full only to be told after my money has been excepted that there were no more tickets and to select another ticket. when your spending you hard earned twenty you really don’t want to hear that. thanks
