$50,000 Sizzlin’ Spot Crossword Top-Prize Won

Sizzlin' Spot CrosswordThe Maryland Lottery’s latest scratch-off winner can thank a perfect stranger for his big win. The lucky winner was undecided to which scratch-off to play this past weekend, so he asked the advice of a woman who was in the store with him. That turned out to be $50,000 worth of advice.

“I play scratch-offs often, but I wasn’t sure which one to buy on that day,” he said. “The lady in front of me said she won on Sizzlin’ Spot Crossword, so I chose that one.” He bought three of those tickets and the third one turned out to be a $50,000 winner.

The concrete finisher said after revealing the big win he immediately went home to show his wife. “Even after looking at the ticket, she didn’t believe it right away,” he said. He hid the ticket under a file cabinet and waited impatiently for the weekend to end so he could claim his prize. The player told Lottery officials that he is glad it is over and that the ticket is finally cashed.

“I didn’t think people really won the Lottery,” he said. “I sure hope it is not the last time for me.” The grandfather of six said he is going to save his winnings and wait to decide how he will use his prize.

The winning ticket was purchased at Brother’s Beverage and Exchange located at 2013 Pulaski Highway in Edgewood.
