Baltimore City Man Wins $30,000 Blackout Bingo Top PrizeMonday, September 20th, 2010
“I had a feeling,” said the Baltimore City resident who was accompanied to Lottery Headquarters by his son and neighbor. “I wasn’t going to play, but I had a feeling,” When his premonition came true and his Blackout Bingo scratch-off revealed a $30,000 prize, he was in shock. Initially under the impression that he had won $10,000 the 42-year-old had his wife and son double-check his scratch-off.
When they all realized he had actually won $30,000 his son told Lottery officials that he didn’t know how to describe how he felt. Even sitting in the Lottery’s Winner’s Lounge, the winner expressed, “I still won’t believe it until I see the check.”
The father-of-six, who works at a hauling and construction business, said that although he doesn’t have any immediate plans, his family has discussed using some of his winnings to take a cruise. His neighbor said with a laugh, “Can I get some sneakers?” The Blackout Bingo $30,000 winning ticket was purchased at Wing Hing at 700 Cherry Hill Rd. in Baltimore City.
