Baltimore Man’s Scratch-off Prize Doubles – Wins $60,000

Thursday, July 19th, 2012

When he revealed a $30,000 top-prize on his Blackout Bingo scratch-off ticket, one lucky Baltimore man thought he was seeing things. He was doubly stunned when he learned that his prize claim would be doubled, due to a limited-time Maryland Lottery promotion, turning the win into $60,000.

The 76-year-old former steelworker was sitting outside an establishment he frequents when he scratched the ticket. When every number on his Blackout Bingo scratch-off ticket appeared to match, he had to find better light. “I didn’t believe it. I had to check it again” he said.

He didn’t claim his ticket right away, hiding the winning ticket in a greeting card. He rushed to claim his winnings when he was told by a clerk that top-prizes on $2 scratch-offs were only being doubled by the Maryland Lottery until July 31st.

The lucky winner had no immediate plans for his winnings. The winning ticket was purchased at the Tobacco Stop convenience store located on 79 Shipping Place in Baltimore.
