Columbia Woman Hits the Jackpot, Winning $50,000 Prize on Jackpot RichesMonday, July 13th, 2009
Two summers ago, a lucky lady came to Lottery Headquarters to claim the $50,000 prize she had won on a $5 Maryland Lottery scratch-off. She used the money to buy a house in Columbia and kept playing scratch-offs “just for fun.”
On Monday, the 46-year-old returned to Lottery Headquarters, claiming another $50,000 prize. This time, she won the top prize on the $5 Maryland Lottery scratch-off Jackpot Riches.
The lucky winner could not believe that she had won again. Now, she plans on sharing her winnings with her brother and sister. She also plans on buying a new car for her 19-year-old daughter.
“We are so happy for her,” said the winner’s sister. “She is such a good person and she is always so generous.”
The winner hopes her luck will continue, and assured Lottery Officials that she will be back in summer 2011 to claim another $50,000 prize.
The winning ticket was purchased at Country Liquors located at 531 Jermor Lane in Westminster. There are four $50,000 top prizes remaining on the $5 Jackpot Riches scratch-off.
