Charles County Couple Wins Top Prize in Time for 25th AnniversaryWednesday, November 14th, 2012
Andrew and Elizabeth Pike claim their $100,000 prize.
Wins $100,000 on 10X Payday Payout Scratch-off
Andrew and Elizabeth Pike from La Plata have been busy planning the anniversary trip of a lifetime. After 25 years together, the couple decided it was time to treat themselves to a tropical vacation in Hawaii. Little did they know, they would be upgrading their reservations due to a top prize win of $100,000 on the 10X Payday Payout scratch-off.
Excited to celebrate their silver anniversary, the Pikes are looking forward to traveling in style. “The first thing I told my husband was that we would be upping our flight to first class,” said Elizabeth nudging her husband playfully. “I’m sure we’ll be able to do a more while we’re in Hawaii thanks to the winnings.”
The couple was almost deterred from buying scratch-offs after they saw two other people win top prizes at their favorite retailer. “We thought we missed our chance to win big so I bought tickets from another store for a couple days,” said Andrew. “As soon as I saw I had a winning ticket, I told the store clerk that his store sold another huge ticket.”
Aside from putting some of the winnings towards their 25th anniversary trip, the couple plans to invest the rest. The winning ticket was purchased at Super H Convenience Store, located at 11091 Business Park Drive in Waldorf. There is one remaining top prize on the 10X Payday Payout scratch-off ticket.
