Baltimore Man’s Co-Worker Leads Him to $50,000 Win

Monday, August 8th, 2011

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.

    Why do so many people comment on “another winner in Baltimore” or “no one ever wins in Baltimore”; obviously many people who view this site can not comprehend that a “Baltimore” man purchased a winning ticket in Annapolis. I don’t understand why people do not get the fact that it is RANDOM! They either complain that no one wins in Balto or only the big winners are in Balto. Wake up people! And Congrats to you Quentin. Thanks MD Lottery for letting me speak my peace!!
