Quentin Sutherland celebrates his Instant Riches scratch-off win.
Claims Top Prize on Instant Riches Scratch-Off
Early this morning, 52-year-old Quentin Sutherland came into Lottery Headquarters to claim his $50,000 Instant Riches prize. The lucky winner was encouraged to play by his co-worker who won $500 on scratch-offs two weeks in a row. “I figured, if he could win that much, I might as well give it a shot,” said Quentin. Having just recently started playing scratch-offs on a regular basis, Quentin was completely astonished when he scratched his ticket while at lunch, revealing his win. “When I realized how much I had actually won, I was so shocked that I started to shake.” The carpenter immediately told his lucky co-worker and the rest of the staff.
Quentin then called his girlfriend, who screamed upon hearing the news. With his winnings, he plans to take his co-workers out to lunch, his girlfriend to a nice dinner and pay some bills. Quentin intends to put the rest in the bank for safe-keeping. The winning ticket was purchased at Giant Supermarket, located at 948 Bay Ridge Rd. in Annapolis.
