Wins $50,000 on Multi-Prize Bingo Scratch-Off

Edward Hannus - Multi-Prize BingoEdward Hannus said luck runs in his family. About eight years ago his mother won $175,000 playing Mega Millions, which was the second-tier prize at that time.

The 69-year-old retired Baltimore County Schools employee came to Lottery Headquarters today to claim his own big win — $50,000 on the Multi-Prize Bingo scratch-off.

“I must have checked that ticket ten times,” said Edward. The lucky Middle River man had won $20 playing the Crossword scratch-off and used some of that money to purchase two Multi-Prize Bingo tickets.

Edward took the tickets home to scratch them and it’s there that he revealed his good fortune. He said he thought he had won $500 with four corners, but after looking a bit harder he realized he had an X. “I still can’t believe what I was seeing,” he said.

Edward intends to use his winnings for dental work and home repairs. “I am going to save the rest, because, in today’s times, you just don’t know when you are going to need it,” he said. The winning ticket was purchased at Carroll Island Amoco, located at 17 Carroll Island Rd. in Baltimore County.

    Happy Father’s Day Daddy!

    I’m so happy for my Dad. He’s been through so much these past few years. With the death of his Mom still aching his heart, he deserves every good forturne that comes his way.
    You’ve inspired me to play the lottery. Things happen in 3′s, so maybe our family luck will continue!
    I love you sooooooo much! Have fun and live life a little!
