Wins $30,000 top prize

LuckA Silver Spring woman, who wished to remain anonymous, purchased a single scratch-off ticket while out at the store last Thursday. The $3 Luck ticket turned out to be worth $30,000.

The soft-spoken woman told Lottery officials that she was overwhelmed when she saw that matching numbers staring back at her. “I was really excited, but I didn’t know what to believe,” she said.

After making a quick call to let her parents know that she had won $30,000, the 21-year-old put the ticket in an envelope for safe keeping. “Besides my parents I haven’t told anyone about my win,” the young woman said.

For now, the woman plans to save the money for a rainy day. There are four remaining top prizes on the Luck ticket. The woman found her lucky ticket at Aspen Hill Citgo at 13615 Georgia Avenue in Silver Spring.
