Couple Takes Home $100,000 Playing Diamond & 7’s Scratch-Off
A happy couple was enjoying a nice lunch and playing some Keno on Saturday when Lady Luck appeared. She sprinkled her dust on them as they were playing scratch-offs, resulting in their $100,000 Diamond & 7’s scratch-off win.
The couple initially planned to visit Baltimore’s Inner Harbor on Saturday with family, but because of the weather, they decided to stay closer to home. “Just think, if we had gone to the Harbor, we would have missed out on this win,” said the husband of the winning duo.
They took a short trip up the road to Glen Burnie instead and enjoyed an afternoon of good food, drinks and Lottery. “I bought four tickets and let my wife scratch them,” said the Constellation Energy employee. The very first number to appear was a 7 symbol, so she knew she’d won something. However, she scratched the rest of the ticket before revealing the amount won. “I showed my husband, asking was I seeing it correctly,” said the Department of the Army employee. They doubled checked it at a Lottery retailer and the $100,000 win was confirmed.
The sensible couple said that they will use the winnings towards home improvements and a really nice vacation. The winning ticket was purchased at Sunset Restaurant, located at 625 Greenway Ave. in Glen Burnie.
