Wins $50,000 Top Prize on 5 Times The Money Scratch-Off

5 Times the MoneyGary McNett, the owner of a small construction company, was enjoying Tuesday’s sunny, warm weather. While out and about, he stopped at the gas station to fuel up. As he walked in to the Chesapeake Market BP, he saw several scratch-off tickets. Pointing to the 5 Times The Money scratch-off, he said to the cashier “I’ll take one of those.”  Gary then headed back to his truck. He hadn’t driven far, when he decided to pulled to the side of the road and scratch his ticket..

Gary had never played this game before and wasn’t quite sure how it worked. But, by the time he had worked his way down to the fifth line he’d figured out how the game was played. “I thought, wow,” said the $50,000 winner.  “I was in shock.”

In fact, he was so amazed that he asked five people if he was seeing things.   Once convinced, Gary turned to his friend and said” I think I won!”

A classic car enthusiast, Gary does all the work on his ‘67 Mustang and intends to use some of his winnings to restore the car. He also plans to save some money for the future. The winning ticket was purchased at Chesapeake Market BP, located at 12300 Annapolis Rd., Glenn Dale.
