Wins $50,000 on Triple Green Crossword
Getting a cup of coffee has never been so profitable. Last week, a Mt. Airy woman won $50,000 just by stopping for a cup of coffee. While getting coffee, she decided to purchase a Maryland Lottery Triple Green Crossword scratch-off .
“I was paying for my coffee when I saw the crossword ticket. Crossword games were always my mom’s favorite,” she told officials. She played the game later with her husband, and couldn’t believe the results.
“We each saw the $50,000, but all we could say was, ‘No way!’” A quick trip back to the store confirmed their good fortune. “I went from being able to say nothing but, ‘No way’ to nothing but, ‘Oh my goodness.’”
The money will go towards a college fund for the kids, home repairs and summer vacation plans, the 30-year-old cashier told officials. Her Maryland Lottery luck found her at the 7-11 at 4213 Ridge Road in Westminster.
