Wins $250,000 on Livin’ Lucky Scratch-off
Can you get a good vibe by simply looking at the name of a particular scratch-off? One Baltimore winner said that’s what happened when he decided to purchase a Livin’ Lucky ticket earlier today. He liked the name and figured that this time around, he would be the one to win big money. His premonition proved true.
After purchasing the Livin’ Lucky ticket, he scratched it in the store and realized he was $250,000 richer. “I was in shock. I looked at the ticket three times,” said the winner. He was so excited that he let the entire store know. “Everybody in the store thought I was crazy when I ran outside into the parking lot saying I won $250,000,” he said. The good news traveled fast as he quickly shared his good fortune with his two children and son-in-law.
The 50-year-old forklift operator plans to pay off his house with his winnings, share with family and invest the rest. The happy winner said that he occasionally plays Mega Millions and Powerball when the jackpots get high. He intends to buy Powerball tickets in hopes of returning to Lottery Headquarters to claim Saturday night’s jackpot of $218 million. The winning ticket was purchased at Royal Farms, located on 4015 Northpoint Blvd in Baltimore.
