Owings Mills Store Sells $1 Million Scratch-offMonday, March 4th, 2013
Same store sold $100,000 winner three weeks ago
There must be something in the air at the Safeway store in Owings Mills. For the second time in three weeks, a big winning ticket was sold at that location. The most recent ticket, which was claimed today, had a $1 million top prize on the Million Money Match scratch-off. Just three weeks ago, someone claimed a $100,000 Double Cash top prize from the exact same store.
Today’s $1 million ticket was claimed by a 49-year-old Owings Mills man. The winner, who chose to remain anonymous, brought his brother and niece with him to Lottery headquarters to claim the prize. The new millionaire is understandably still in shock over the amount of the win. “At first I thought I had won $10,000, but then I looked at it again and saw that it was worth $1 million,” the lucky man told Lottery officials.
The only purchase he plans to make for now with his newfound money is a house. The lucky $1 million Money Million Match ticket, along with the $100,000 Double Cash ticket from three weeks ago, was purchased at the Safeway #1657, located at 10335 Reisterstown Road in Owings Mills.
