Upset Stomach Soothed by $30,000 Maryland Lottery Win

Daniel Gartland - Fire and Ice Multiplier

Daniel Gartland of Delaware won $30,000 with the
Fire and Ice Multiplier scratch-off.

Delaware man wins top prize on Fire and Ice Multiplier scratch-off

A combination of ginger ale and Lottery luck helped cure what ailed a Delaware man last week, making him $30,000 richer.

Daniel Gartland’s journey to good fortune began last Monday, when his upset stomach was so bad he called in sick to work. Finding no medicine on hand to ease his tummy woes, the ailing 23-year-old went to the store for ginger ale and spotted a display of Maryland Lottery scratch-off tickets. The Delaware man added a couple of them to his ginger ale purchase and headed home, hoping to feel better soon.

Did he ever! Daniel scratched off the tickets and saw he won $30,000 on a Fire and Ice Multiplier ticket. “I don’t play very often,” he said. “I totally thought it was fake at first.”

The winner lives in Newark but is staying with his grandmother in Elkton, Md., to keep her company after the death of his grandfather earlier this year. She was the first person he told.

“I showed her the ticket and said, ‘I think I just won $30,000!’” Daniel said. “My Mom-Mom just laughed, and said, ‘You sure did.’”

The lucky man then shared news of his win with his parents, brother and girlfriend. At first, they all doubted his good news and even his girlfriend thought he was joking.

A foreman at the H&H Insulation Company, Daniel then locked the ticket in a safe and went to work the rest of the week. He waited until Monday, July 15, to claim his prize. The young winner told Lottery officials that he plans to use the winnings for a down payment on a house, a vacation and is looking at engagement rings! He bought his ginger ale and winning ticket at the High’s store located at 42 Beauchamp Rd. in Elkton.

Construction Worker’s Lottery Win Smooths Life’s Bumpy Road

July 15th, 2013

Wins $50,000 playing Bonus Match 5 game

Recently back to work after a long layoff, a construction worker is facing a much smoother road ahead due to his fondness for the Maryland Lottery’s nightly Bonus Match 5 game. The Baltimore man’s $50,000 win last week will help him to knock down the bills that built up during his time out of work.

“I play Bonus Match 5 as often as I can, although I’ve slowed down these last months,” the 46-year-old road construction specialist told Lottery officials. “When I checked my ticket and saw the match I thought I was dreaming. I checked my ticket over and over.”

He plans to pay much of his debt and start putting money away again. “Being out of work wiped out my savings,” he said. “This will help a ton, it just came at so perfect a time for me.”

The Loch Raven neighborhood resident encountered his Lottery luck at Limetree Liquors at 1720 East Northern Parkway.

Landscaper Rakes in Scratch-off Top Prize

July 11th, 2013
 Larry Hester - Stacked with Cash

Veterans Administration landscaper Larry Hester of Baltimore
won $30,000 on a Stacked with Cash scratch-off ticket.

Baltimore-area man wins $30,000 with Stacked with Cash ticket

The days before and after the July 4 holiday weekend are busy ones for Veterans Administration landscaper Larry Hester, who beautifies and maintains area cemeteries and war memorials to a level befitting the final resting places of those who served this nation. While on a break from the scorching summer heat one recent work day, the Baltimore-area man got a monumental surprise – he won $30,000 on a Maryland Lottery scratch-off ticket!

The 60-year-old was sprucing up the grounds of the Maryland Vietnam Veterans Memorial overlooking Middle Branch on Waterview Ave. when the broiling summer sun forced him to take a break. “I had already sweated through one shirt that day, so I headed across the street to cool off with a scratch-off and a cold root beer,” said Hester. He purchased a Stacked with Cash scratch-off ticket.

To his surprise, while scratching off the ticket, he revealed a winning emblem and a whopping $30,000 top prize.

“I started shaking. Things like this don’t happen to me,” he explained to Lottery officials later that day. He showed the ticket to another co-worker before stowing it safely away. “I was sweating so profusely that I had to put the ticket away because it was getting damp,” Hester said.

The winnings will have a significant impact on his life. Hester is caring for his 92-year-old mother and the windfall will allow him to provide her with medical care and the peace of mind that her future needs are covered. Hester also plans to share a portion of the winnings with Tim, a VA co-worker and friend of 13 years.

He bought the winning ticket at AA State Check Cashing located at 2830 S. Hanover St. in Baltimore.

Quick Stop to Buy Milk Quenches Thirst for Lottery Win

July 10th, 2013
 Betty Brown - 7X The Money

Glenn and Betty Brown of Salisbury with grandson Austin celebrate
winning $77,705 with two 7x the Money scratch-offs.

Salisbury woman leaves store $77,700 richer

One quick stop at a local shop to buy milk for her grandson left a Salisbury grandmother $77,700 richer – all because she indulged her love of playing Maryland Lottery scratch-off tickets. Betty Brown’s purchase of milk and three 7x the Money scratch-offs quenched not only her six-year-old grandson’s thirst for his favorite dairy product but also her longtime thirst for a big scratch-off win!

“We just couldn’t believe it,” said Betty, who came to Lottery headquarters in Baltimore on July 5, more than a week after her big win, because it was the first day she and her husband Glenn both had a day off from work. Betty, 50-something, provides day care for six youngsters and Glenn, 56, is an electrician. A day off together is rare, indeed.

The Salisbury natives have played Lottery games together for their 24 years of marriage but never hit it big before, said Betty. “We would win maybe $5, maybe $10, but nothing like this.”

“I always said somebody has to win, so why not us,” Glenn said, laughing. “You have to play to win!”

The mother of sons Tyler and Jordan and grandmother of three – Aydon, 6; Austin, 2 ½; and Ryder, 6 weeks — was running too late on the day of her lucky purchase to go to a grocery store for the milk. She dashed into a Citgo near her son’s home to make a quick purchase. Betty enjoys playing Powerball, Mega Millions and scratch-offs of all varieties. “I usually try to hit the new ones,” she said. That day, the 7x the Money scratch-offs caught her eye so she bought three of them. What a deal! Two of the three tickets were winners!

She scratched off the first ticket and saw she won $5. The second ticket was a bust. That third ticket, however, carried the $77,700 prize. “Third times the charm, I guess,” Betty said.

The couple and their sons’ families love to camp in their Travel Trailer RV, and “Nana,” as Betty is called by the grandchildren, has envied other campers’ golf carts at the camp site. “They all have one,” she said. They plan to spend her winnings to pay off bills and then buy a four-seat golf cart for camping. “It’s going to be a big one with the name ‘Nana’ on the side,” she said.

Betty bought the lucky ticket at the Citgo at 31373 Old Ocean City Rd. in Salisbury. The couple stopped by to tell the store owners about the win and shared a photo showing them holding their giant Maryland Lottery check.

Other than telling the Citgo store owners and the immediate family, Betty and Glenn have kept quiet about their win. Word is bound to circulate soon, though, because Betty is well connected in the region’s bowling community. She serves as a secretary for the bowling league she’s belonged to for about 30 years and is first vice president on the Board of Directors of the Lower Eastern Shore United States Bowling Congress Association.

Baltimore Woman is Bahamas Bound Thanks to Lottery Win

July 10th, 2013

Senior citizen claims $50,002 for Bonus Match 5

Sand, surf and sun are on the agenda next week for a Baltimore woman who won $50,002 Tuesday night in the Maryland Lottery’s Bonus Match 5 drawing. The senior citizen is grinning ear to ear and happily planning to take a long-awaited trip to the Bahamas in style.

“I’m just thrilled,” she told officials Wednesday at Lottery headquarters in Baltimore. “I can pay my bills, pay my property taxes and finally have some breathing room. I can relax.”

The mother-of-five loves playing Bonus Match 5 and always lets the machine pick her numbers. A loyal Bonus Match 5 player for more than a decade, she buys a $6 ticket each day. Her top win to date totaled a little more than $1,000. “I’ve hit $400 every so often,” she said.

That amount, in fact, is exactly what this grandmother of nine and great-grandmother of seven originally thought she had won. She made a one-digit error when she wrote down the Bonus Match 5 winning numbers Tuesday night. When they appeared on TV, she squinted at them and failed to don her reading glasses. “I wrote down the number 38 instead of 39,” she confessed. She told her son she won $400 and $2 on her ticket and went off to bed.

However, her son rechecked the numbers. He excitedly delivered the great news to the initially unconvinced, sleepy woman. When she realized she had actually won $50,002, the woman immediately thanked the heavens above. “I got the help I needed,” she said. Other than telling her son and her sister of her good fortune, the widow told only her best friend of more than four decades about the win. She plans to keep it that way, too!

Want to tap into her luck? The woman bought her ticket at Locust Point Liquors at 1515 E. Clement St. in Baltimore.
