Baltimore City Woman Wins Top Prize on Lucky Times 20 Scratch-off

After hurricane Irene left many of her neighbors without power, the Baltimore City woman was in pursuit of dry ice to help them out. It was on one of her outings that she decided to stop at the ATM to get some cash.  “I was only going to get $40, but the $60 button on the ATM machine was calling my name,” said the winner.  That extra $20 would soon purchase her winning $1 million ticket. ”Lucky Times 20 is my favorite scratch-off,” she said. “I started buying it back in March and thought, ‘if I’m going to win something big I’m going to win on this.’”

The 49-year-old first bought two Lucky Times 20 scratch-off tickets, which were both non-winners. As she turned to leave the Erdman BP, she had a feeling that “this was it” and turned back and bought the third ticket.  She scratched it there in the store, revealing her $1 million win. She ran out of the store and headed home to share the news of her newfound wealth with her husband.  “I got home and told my husband we needed to talk,” she said with a grin. Her husband was shocked when he was told they were $1 million richer.  “I didn’t go to work that day because I knew I wouldn’t be able to think clearly,” he said.

The happy couple plans to continue helping family and friends with their prize money.  “This is such a relief to be able to afford to help others,” they said in agreement. The winning ticket was purchased at Erdman BP, located at 4901 Erdman Ave. in Baltimore.

    So if you win the $1M scratch off?  How much do you actually keep after taxes?

      It appears that Maryland wants more of the winner’s money.  I won in 2008 and the Feds took 25% and Maryland was 8.5% .. now it is over 9% … not bad for people who are buying these tickets on money that has already been taxed once.

    when???? 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.

    In fact a Temple Hills women just won a cruise vacation package in our Cruise for Cash 2nd chance contest. Click here for details.
