BINGO! Baltimore Woman Wins $50,000 on Multi Prize Bingo Scratch-OffMonday, September 27th, 2010
Keno is typically the game of choice for the 65-year-old Baltimore woman, but when she chose to play the Multi Prize Bingo scratch-off it paid off to the tune of $50,000. On Saturday, while waiting for her Keno games to begin, she casually purchased an instant ticket. “I do it to pass the time while waiting,” she said. She proceeded to scratch the ticket and was stunned to discover that she was a top-prize winner. “I was nervous and almost passed out.”
After confirming her big win at the Lottery retailer, she called her four sisters and 92-year-old mother to share the good news. The winner intends to use her winnings to take care of her family, particularly her mom. “This is my biggest win ever on a scratch-off,” she said. The winning ticket was purchased at S & A Food Market on 801 N. Woodington Rd. in Baltimore.
