Emotional Win for Crisfield Man

Wednesday, June 16th, 2010

Wins $50,000 Taxes-Paid Prize

Gorman Abbott - Bucks DeluxeWhen Gorman Abbott entered Lottery Headquarters today, his emotions took center stage.  Although he knew he had a winning ticket prior to arriving, the emotions set in once reality hit.  Gorman claimed a $50,000 taxes-paid top prize on a Bucks Deluxe scratch-off.

On Saturday, Gorman stopped at a local convenience store on his way home from a friend’s house.  He picked out a Bucks Deluxe ticket and scratched it at the store.  At first he thought it was a $10,000 winner, so he had the owner of the store check the ticket.  The owner informed him that the ticket was actually a $50,000 winner.

“I feel like a millionaire,” Gorman, a retired nurse’s assistant, told Lottery Officials.  “I still didn’t believe it was real until I came here today.”  To make the win even more exciting, the Lottery pays the estimated taxes for the top prize on the Bucks Deluxe scratch-off.

The 66-year-old plans to save most of his winnings, and possibly buy a truck. The winning ticket was purchased at Crisfield Oceanic, located at 55 Richardson Ave. in Crisfield.
