Claims Maryland Lottery top prize on MONOPOLY™ scratch-off

An 84-year-old Dundalk man created some ‘indoor fireworks’ of his own when he revealed a $50,000 top prize.  On Independence Day, the former Bethlehem Steel employee stopped to pick up some milk and also purchased a MONOPOLY™ scratch-off. When he returned home, he and his wife scratched the ticket while making dinner. He was double-checking the ticket, examining the game area and saw a MONOPOLY™-themed railroad emblem, meaning that he had won 10 times the $5,000 prize shown – a $50,000 jackpot.

The winner, who has been retired for over 30 years, says he and his wife are on a fixed income and the prize will help to minimize their healthcare costs. Having the extra money for rising costs is a blessing for the couple. “It feels good — it’s a relief,” said the winner. The winning scratch-off ticket was purchased at the Royal Farm convenience store located at 4015 Northpoint Boulevard in Dundalk.
