Lottery Surprise for Abingdon Retiree

November 25th, 2015

Spur-of-the-moment scratch-off purchase results in $100,000 prize

190-MONOPOLY-ITVM_$10A 68-year-old retired insurance executive visited Maryland Lottery headquarters the day before Thanksgiving to claim a $100,000 scratch-off prize that he won when a simple stop at a gas station turned into one of the most memorable moments of his life.

“I’ve been blessed for a long time, well before I bought this ticket, but this is just remarkable,” the lucky winner said.

It was a full gas tank that the Harford County resident wanted when he pulled in to the Perry Hall BP station at 8809 Belair Road in Baltimore. Once he was there, however, something else jumped onto his list, and he purchased a $10 Monopoly scratch-off ticket.

“I get lottery tickets from time to time,” he said. “The idea just pops in my head sometimes when I’m in a store.”

He’s never had any significant luck playing lottery games, but said he has won often enough to make buying tickets a fun proposition. But it’s not just the winning that keeps him playing.

“I know the money I spend is going to a good cause … that it goes back to the people of Maryland,” he said.

When he got home and scratched his ticket, he couldn’t believe his eyes.

“I’m an optimistic guy, but I absolutely never expected to win money like this,” he said.

As happy as he was, it seems his wife was even more thrilled.

“I’m not convinced she believed me, maybe not even now, but she was pretty excited,” he said.

A few home repair projects are on the Harford County man’s agenda, with more ideas sure to be added soon. The Monopoly game has two more $100,000 winning tickets still waiting to be found at Maryland Lottery retailers across the state, as well as four $10,000 prizes. For selling the winning ticket, Perry Hall BP will receive a $1,000 bonus from the Maryland Lottery.

Aberdeen Great-Grandmother Celebrates Biggest Win

November 25th, 2015

Betty Boop scratch-off ticket pays off with $10,000 prize

217-Betty-Boop-ITVMYou might credit a sweet tooth for a 70-year-old Harford County woman’s lucky Lottery moment, but she’ll tell you it was a voice from above. Whatever drove her to visit a neighborhood convenience store recently and try an instant ticket may just be responsible for her $10,000 Betty Boop scratch-off win.

The mother of three, grandmother of five and great-grandmother of three, said she buys lottery tickets once in a blue moon – whenever the feeling strikes her. Happily for her, that “feeling” came over her recently at the Royal Farms at 742 South Philadelphia Avenue in Aberdeen.

“I went there for a snack, and right before I left, the feeling hit me: ‘Why not get a lottery ticket while I’m here?’” she said.

Her late husband often prodded her to buy tickets, so she attributed the “feeling” to a nudge from above. Cementing that belief was the Betty Boop ticket that was front and center in the store’s lottery display.

“My husband loved Betty Boop so I know where the feeling came from,” she said.

She took the $2 ticket home to scratch it, and was absolutely stunned by the prize amount.

“I sat and stared at it for 10 minutes,” she said. “Just unbelievable.”

Visiting her neighbors to share the good news and confirm that she wasn’t seeing things, she was quite a sight.

“I looked like a zombie when I stepped in their house,” she said. “I think they were concerned at first.”

The lucky winner said she will pay bills with her Betty Boop winnings.

“This makes life much easier for me, it comes in very handy,” she said, adding that she barely slept the night after her big moment, but has been relaxed ever since. “It’s been a great week for me.”

The Betty Boop ticket launched in July, and there are still two $10,000 top prizes waiting to be found at Lottery retailers across the state, along with six $1,000 prizes.

Winning Streak Leads to $10,000 Prize for Cockeysville Retiree

November 24th, 2015

Finds luck playing Instant Millionaire scratch-off

192-Instant-Millionaire-ITVM_P4-greenA huge fan of scratch-off games, a 65-year-old woman stopped for gas last Friday at the Timonium Shell on York Road and walked out with $10,000. The lucky player said she was in the middle of running errands, when she stopped to fill her gas tank and unexpectedly filled her pockets, too.

The winner said she tends to play $20 scratch-offs most often because of the bigger prizes. On this particular day, she started with a Black scratch-off and won $100. She then bought two more $20 tickets, winning a total of $55. Still feeling a bit lucky, she purchased two Instant Millionaire scratch-offs revealing a much bigger win.

“After scratching just the top of the ticket, I thought it was a $500 winner,” said the lucky player. “Then I ran it through the machine and knew it was much more.” She scratched the rest of the ticket, revealing a $10,000 win.

The recent retiree wanted to share the news with her mother, but decided to wait until later. She picked her up from the hair salon and went home not saying a word.

“I couldn’t believe she held it in for so long,” said the winner’s 91-year-old mother. “Later that day, she just handed me the tickets from the day and told me to look at them.”

Winning apparently runs in this family. The mother won $10,000 on a scratch-off seven years ago and the winner herself also won a Ravens Cash Fantasy second-chance prize a few years ago.

With this current windfall, the winner wants to invest and use some towards an already planned cruise. She plans to continue to play the $20 scratch-offs and promises to visit Lottery Headquarters again.

Burtonsville Siblings Split Scratch-Off Prize Down the Middle

November 24th, 2015
Clarence and Debra Madkins - Let is Snow_webDebra Madkins and her brother Clarence Madkins of Burtonsville were all smiles as they split a $100,000 Maryland Lottery scratch-off prize.

Lucky winners are first to claim top prize on Let It Snow Tripler ticket

If there is any sibling rivalry between Debra Madkins and her brother Clarence, they were clearly too happy to show it when they arrived at Maryland Lottery headquarters in Baltimore two days before Thanksgiving.

The Burtonsville residents were the first to claim a $100,000 top prize on the Let It Snow Tripler scratch-off ticket and split the money right down the middle.

“We play scratch-offs almost every day, and we have a deal that if we win anything more than $500 we split it,” Debra said.

On Nov. 22, before an afternoon of watching that day’s NFL games, Clarence made a run to Quality Beer and Wine in Silver Spring. His sister gave him $20 to buy scratch-offs, and he quickly picked out a pair of $10 Let It Snow Tripler tickets. When he returned home, he gave the tickets to Debra and settled in for kickoff.

Debra said she enjoys the recently released My Lottery Rewards App, which allows players to scan tickets using a smartphone to find out if they are winners. But she resisted the urge to take that shortcut with her Let It Snow Tripler tickets.

“I decided I was going to go ahead and scratch it and not just scratch the code and then scan it,” she said.

And as she scratched, she revealed the $100,000 prize and quickly shared the good news with her brother, telling him, “We’re rich!”

“We play all the time, and it’s true, you have to play to win,” Debra said. “It had been a while. We were due for a $500 or $1,000, but we’re happy it’s a big one like this.”

It’s by far the most either of them has ever won on a scratch-off ticket. Clarence’s previous best came more than 20 years ago when he won $5,000. Neither sibling said they had any special plans for their prize money – at least not immediately.

“I don’t want to wake up from the dream,” said Clarence, a former construction worker.

Debra, a retired federal government employee, said she wanted to “let it marinate a little bit,” adding that she would share some of her good fortune with family and perhaps make some travel plans for next year.

The Let It Snow Tripler ticket launched in October, and there are still two $100,000 top prizes waiting to be found at Lottery retailers across the state. Quality Beer and Wine at 13826 Old Columbia Pike in Silver Spring is a winner as well. For selling the winning ticket, the retailer will receive a $1,000 bonus from the Maryland Lottery.

A Maryland Lottery Win in Arizona

November 24th, 2015
Melissa McGee - Hit it big_webMelissa McGee (right) of Tucson, Ariz., won $10,000 on a scratch-off ticket that her mother Pamela McGee (left) gave to her during a trip home to Maryland.

Tucson woman returns home for Thanksgiving, claims $10,000 scratch-off prize

Melissa McGee left Maryland earlier this year, moving to Arizona to run an entertainment company. She was back in town for the Thanksgiving holiday, but also to cash the $10,000 Hit It Big scratch-off ticket her mother gave her as a going-away present back in May.

“I came home a few months ago to attend the funeral of a close family friend,” Melissa said. “My mom handed me a lottery ticket when she dropped me off at the airport afterward. I didn’t get a chance to play it until I was back in Arizona.”

Melissa, 30, plays only occasionally, usually when her mother buys tickets.

“She almost always buys me one when we’re together,” she said.

After unpacking in Arizona, Melissa finally scratched her Hit It Big ticket. When she saw the results, she was not convinced that she had in fact hit it big.

“I was sure that it was a joke ticket, that it was fake,” she said. “So I called my mom back in Maryland.”

Receiving assurances that the ticket was genuine, Melissa put it safely away.

“My mom kept track of when it might expire, so I knew it could wait for my Thanksgiving visit, so here I am!” she said.

In fact, Melissa and her mom made Lottery Headquarters their first stop upon leaving BWI Airport.

Paying bills and a vacation with her mom next year are at the top of Melissa’s list of plans for her winnings. Her winning ticket was purchased at the Citgo gas station at 14807 Crain Highway in Brandywine. The $20 Hit It Big game was launched in June and still has two remaining $1 million top prizes, two $50,000 prizes and 17 more $10,000 prizes waiting to be claimed.

Anne Arundel County resident wins $50,000 scratch-off prize

216-Classic-Crossword-ITVM_P1-pinkA 56-year-old scratch-off ticket enthusiast from Lothian visited Maryland Lottery Headquarters on Nov. 23 to claim a $50,000 prize she won the previous day when she gave up on one instant game and tried another.

She turned to Classic Crossword, and that decision rewarded her with a top-prize win.

“I love bingo and crossword tickets,” said the Anne Arundel County Schools employee, who won $10,000 on another scratch-off ticket earlier this year. A bingo game that she’s been playing recently hasn’t been paying off for her. Fortunately, the 7-Eleven she visited on Nov. 22 had more of her favorite kinds of tickets available.

“I scanned the ticket there at the store and saw that it was a winner, though I didn’t know the prize,” she said. “I figured it was $1,000.”

When she examined her Classic Crossword ticket a few minutes later in the car she saw the true total.

“I was stunned,” she said. “I quickly called my husband and told him, ‘Guess what, honey. I did it again.’”

The Anne Arundel County resident plans to pay several family bills with her winnings.

“There will be enough left over to make this Christmas a great one for our entire family,” she said.

The lucky winner purchased the ticket at the 7-Eleven at 5809 Deale-Churchton Road in Deale. The retailer will receive a $500 bonus from the Maryland Lottery for selling the winning ticket.

Classic Crossword launched in July and still has two more $50,000 top prizes waiting to be found, along with nine $10,000 prizes.
