Laurel Man Wins “Jumbo” $100,000 PrizeWednesday, August 4th, 2010
Jumbo Cash Doubler Scratch-Off Top Prize Awarded
A 43-year-old Laurel man is a true believer of playing only the newest scratch-offs. So, the Jumbo Cash Doubler ticket, which went on sale on July 26th, was a natural choice. “I only play new scratch-offs because I have a chance of winning the top prize,” said the man, who originally hails from El Salvador.
The father-of-five stopped at his favorite Lottery retailer on his way to work and bought two Jumbo Cash Doubler tickets. He proceeded to scratch the first one with no winning results. He then decided to wait until he got to work to scratch the other. Sitting in the parking lot, he began to scratch his second Jumbo Cash Doubler. Upon revealing that he had won the top prize of $100,000, he excitedly called his wife and children to tell them his great news. He then hid his ticket in his wallet and finished his work day.
The lucky winner plans to save his prize money for his children’s college educations, but may take a little family vacation to celebrate. The winning ticket was sold at Decanter Fine Wines, located at 6420 Freetown Rd. in Columbia.
