Harford County Woman Finds Her “Golden Ticket”Monday, February 27th, 2012
Scratch-off Game Delivers $50,000 Win
A Bel Air woman waiting for her food order to be prepared at a local store made one of the happiest spur-of-the-moment decisions of her life this week. Choosing to pass the time with a Golden Ticket scratch-off brought a $50,000 Lottery prize into her life.
The 55 year-old housewife could not believe her eyes when she scratched the ticket as she stood at the counter. “It just had to be a hoax,” she told officials. “It can’t be real.” To be sure, she asked the clerk to check it, which confirmed the ticket was a winner. After calling her daughter with the news, our winner was about to call her husband at work when she decided to visit him instead. “That was a fun conversation.”
The Harford County couple plans to use their winnings to help family, maybe get a new car and put aside a nice chunk for a rainy day. Their lucky Lottery retailer is the Royal Farm convenience store at 1601 Churchville Road in Bel Air.
