Dream Comes True as North Beach Man Wins $77,777

Friday, May 20th, 2011

Still in disbelief, Donald Richardson and his wife of 13 years made the trip to Lottery headquarters to claim a $77,777 top prize on the Supreme 7’s scratch-off. The 35-year-old North Beach man was talking on the phone with his boss when he discovered his fortune. On their way to work every morning, Donald and his co-workers at Public Works for Chesapeake Beach each purchase scratch-offs. This time he chose to play Supreme 7’s.

“I actually had a dream last night that I won a huge amount of money from a scratch-off,” said Richardson. As his dream appeared to become reality in his truck, he nudged his co-worker to make sure he was seeing the right numbers.

With his winnings, Donald plans to buy his wife a new Chevrolet Tahoe to ensure plenty of room for their four sons. The lucky winner also plans to take a trip to Florida and to pay some bills. The winning ticket was purchased at Twin Beach Convenient Store, located at 8426 Bayside Rd. in Chesapeake Beach.

    I really wished I could win the Lottery because my wife and I are really struggling to make ends meat. I lost my job and my wife is a waitress and doesn’t make much off of tips.If I were to win I would take and pay off all my bills and pay off my family’s bills and with whatever is left over I would donate most of it to those in need.

      flanny: Thanks for writing in. We get this comment a lot. People living in Baltimore believe all the winners are elsewhere and vice versa. Truth is the geographic locations of our winners are all random. There is no way to predict where the winners will be. However, research tells us that more winners come from areas of the State in which more people are playing. Please take a look at our winners stories. There you’ll see that we have winners from all over the State.
