New Nurse Charts Healthy Lottery Scratch-off Win

March 18th, 2014

Claims $50,000 Top Prize on Lucky Millionaire Instant Ticket

Lucky MillionaireEscorted by her big brother, a recent Nursing school graduate arrived at Maryland Lottery headquarters to chart her $50,000 Lucky Millionaire scratch-off win as ready for discharge.

The Montgomery County woman told Lottery officials that scratching instant tickets is a family affair. “Every couple of days, we all pick up a few tickets and then scratch them together,” the 23-year-old said. “We have a great time.”

The happy scratch-off player chose the $20 instant ticket, which debuted on Feb. 24, because she had not seen it before. When the Laytonsville resident first scratched off the lucky ticket, she didn’t realize that lottery luck had found her.

“I cleared off just the dollar amounts at first,” she said. “I saw $5,000 in a bunch of places so I got nervous and gave it to my brother to finish. When he scratched it all, he looked at me with a shocked expression.”

The siblings took the ticket to a Lottery retailer to confirm the win. The happy almost-millionaire plans to share her winnings with her family.

“They supported me all through nursing school and kept me going,” she said. “I’m happy to be able to return the favor.”

The Lucky Millionaire scratch-off winner found her winning ticket at the 7-Eleven at 17701 Muncaster Road in Rockville. The game still has three $1 million winners in stores as well as six more $50,000 prizes.

Mega Millions Jackpot Rolls to Estimated $400 Million

March 17th, 2014

Cash option for Tuesday night’s jackpot is $224.8 million

The Mega Millions jackpot is on another big roll! The jackpot jumped to $400 million for the Tuesday, March 18 drawing, marking only the sixth time in the history of U.S. lotteries that a jackpot has reached that level or higher.

No one playing the multistate lottery on Friday, March 14 selected the winning numbers of 07-20-40-54-69 with Mega Ball 12. Five players who matched five numbers for a $1 million prize hailed from Arkansas, Florida, Ohio (two players) and Virginia. Three of these five winners added the Megaplier option for an additional $1 per play. Their prize tripled because the Megaplier number was 3.

Maryland did have three third-tier winners of $5,000 each and a total of 168,372 winners at all payout levels from $5,000 to $1 in the Friday drawing.

The cash option for Tuesday’s drawing is $224.8 million. This jackpot started its roll on Jan. 7 from a base of $15 million. So far this year, Maryland has welcomed two of three $1 million second-tier winners and is still looking for the lucky holder of a winning ticket in the Feb. 25 drawing. The lucky player bought that ticket at the 7-Eleven in Essex.

Sales of the $1 Mega Millions tickets will continue until 10:45 p.m. Tuesday at Maryland Lottery retailers. Players can increase their winnings by investing a second $1 to add Megaplier to their ticket to multiply non-jackpot prizes by 2x, 3x, 4x or 5x.

Want to be one of the first to hear the winning numbers? Download the MD Lottery app in the Apple and Android app stores and sign up for winning number alerts. Mega Millions drawings also are televised on Tuesday and Friday evenings at 11:22 p.m. on WBAL-TV 11. Players can also see the drawing and winning numbers posted at mdlottery.com.

Horror Movie Fan Chilled, Thrilled by Lottery Scratch-off Win

March 14th, 2014

Collects $50,000 Prize on Top Secret Cash Instant Ticket

Top Secret CashA Montgomery County horror movie fan canceled plans to watch scary movies at home that evening after a detour to buy snacks gave him enough thrills and chills for the year.

The Germantown resident sealed his fate for a no-movie evening by adding one more item to his movie marathon snack purchase. The spine-tingling addition was a Maryland Lottery Top Secret Cash scratch-off, which carried a $50,000 jackpot prize under the ticket’s design.

The unsuspecting Montgomery College student was simply following his routine when he ran his errand. He works as a logistics representative for a local medical device provider while also taking college courses. Whenever the 20-year-old has time off from his job and studies, he relaxes by watching horror flicks. When he scratched off the $50,000 win on this ticket before heading home, our winner also scratched all plans for his relaxing movie marathon.

“I just started shaking, even crying a bit,” the man said. He returned to the store with the ticket to have the clerk verify the win. His suspense built as the clerk carefully checked the $5 scratch-off before handing it back with a grin, saying it was the largest win ever for the store.

Our winner spent the night fretting about who to share his news with, where to hide the ticket until he could claim his prize at Lottery headquarters and how to spend his winnings. The lucky man plans to use his prize to complete studies in computer science at the University of Maryland. He bought his ticket at Milestone Sunoco at 21000 Frederick Road in Germantown.

Poultry Worker Getting New Coop With $50,000 Lottery Win

March 13th, 2014

Buying Home for His Peeps with Scratch-off Prize

Platinum CrosswordWhy did the Delaware poultry worker cross the road into Maryland? To visit his fiancé in Hurlock and buy a winning Maryland Lottery scratch-off ticket, of course!

The 59-year-old scratched off his $50,000 Platinum Crossword winning ticket in January, keeping it in a plastic bag until he could bring what he thought was a $20,000 winner to Lottery headquarters in Baltimore. His confusion ended when the Lottery Winner’s Lounge door opened and he saw a giant check for $50,000 with his name on it. “What? $50,000! Look at all those zeroes!” he said, grinning. That’s no chicken scratch!

The Bridgeville resident favors the Maryland Lottery’s $5 bingo scratch-offs. On Jan. 18, the day of his big win, the grandfather of twins bought two bingo scratch-offs but didn’t win.

“Something said to play the crossword puzzle,” the bachelor said. “I don’t like the puzzles but something said, ‘Play the puzzle.’ ” When he decided to buy a $3 puzzle scratch-off, his instinct insisted he buy the $5 scratch-off, instead. Our lucky player bought two $5 Platinum Crossword scratch-offs and returned to the store with a winning ticket that he thought was worth $20. Not so, said the clerk, who didn’t reveal the amount of the prize but directed the Sussex County resident to head to Baltimore. He showed the ticket to another player, who thought it was worth $20,000. Even his fiancé thought the scratch-off was worth $20,000.

“I’m shocked,” the man said. “This is the most I’ve ever won in my life.”

After years of renting, our happy winner plans to use the prize as a down payment on a house for his family and the twin peeps. “I need a home for the grandbabies,” he said. Our winner found his Lottery luck at Goose Creek #10 at 105 Delaware Ave. in Hurlock.
