Baltimore City resident claims $50,000 prize on $1 Million Fortune scratch-off

158-$1-Million-Fortune-ITVM_P1-AquaA Baltimore man got an extra eye-opening jolt one recent morning on his way to work when he stopped at the Wise Avenue 7-Eleven for his morning cup of Joe. When he reached the cash register, he spotted Maryland Lottery scratch-offs and bought the first $20 instant ticket he saw.

What a shock! The sight of that $20 $1 Million Fortune ticket in his hand jolted him wide awake when he realized he held a $50,000 winning scratch-off.

“When I saw that I won, I just froze,” said the father of two. He called his wife of 19 years to share the great news and she was equally astonished.

Visiting the Lottery’s Winner’s Lounge isn’t a new experience for the 38-year-old. The lucky player won two big prizes totaling $55,000 combined about 10 years ago. He also knows his way around a playslip, being an avid Pick 3/Pick 4 player.

The self-employed construction contractor plans to save most of his winnings because he and his family already have vacation plans. He does plan to buy his son a new car and will have plenty left for more coffee purchases!

Want to follow his Lottery luck? Visit the 7-Eleven located at 7901 Wise Avenue in Baltimore. The retail store also wins by receiving a $500 bonus from the Lottery for selling a winning $50,000 scratch-off. Three $1 million top-prize winning tickets and six $50,000 second-tier winners are still waiting for discovery at Lottery retailers.

    Everytime i read about people that has won playing scratch offs. They always live in Baltimore. What’s up with that ?

      Research tells us that more winners come from areas of the State that have high population because in those areas more people are playing.

      For instance, if you have 1,000 players in City A and only 100 players in City B; City A is likely to produce more winners at nearly a 10:1 rate.
      With that said, the geographic locations of our winners are random. There is no way to predict where the winners will be.
