Decade of Saving Tips for Trip Ends for Lottery Winner
When a Montgomery Village woman and her husband married about a decade ago, their young children came along on the honeymoon. The lifelong Lottery scratch-off player has spent the last decade saving her tips from work and ticket winnings for an adults-only second honeymoon. She certainly had Lady Luck on her side this week when she parlayed some Lottery winnings for a Money Multiplier scratch-off ticket.
The $50,000 she won thanks to the Money Multiplier ticket can make her dream of a second honeymoon on a tropical island come true.
“I’ll put most of the money in the bank,” she said, and schedule the couples’ Caribbean getaway for this winter.
The 40-something mom selects scratch-off tickets for a variety of reasons, including their appearance and whether they proved lucky in the past. Before this win, her biggest prize was $500. The Money Multiplier attracted her because the ticket was purple and adorned with sparkles. She often wins small amounts of up to $100 on a variety of tickets and has several lucky retailers she visits for her purchases.
The woman was running errands at lunch when she bought the lucky ticket. She didn’t scratch it off in the store, which is her routine, but waited until she got home. After seeing all the zeros on the ticket, she immediately texted her husband and asked him to text her as soon as he could. The two work full-time on the music side of the special events industry and cannot easily break away to make phone calls.
She remembers texting him that she had something to tell him but didn’t go into much detail. He responded, very concerned asking if something was wrong. She then told him the good news – his initial response was, “You’re kidding me!”
She bought the lucky ticket at Goshen Plaza Beer & Wine at 9150 Rothbury Drive in Gaithersburg.
Discovered Second Bonus Match 5 Jackpot Win on Sleepless Night
A ticket misunderstanding led to a Manchester resident’s last jackpot. This week, there was no mistake when the retired Maryland State Police sergeant put the collar on a second $50,000 win on the Maryland Lottery’s Bonus Match 5 game.
It was nearly five years ago when the 72-year-old winner reluctantly purchased an extra ticket the store cashier mistakenly printed. That very ticket won him the $50,000 jackpot. Since then, the man has played a combination of his own numbers and Quick Pick purchased from several Manchester-area stores.
On Sunday, he purchased his usual tickets from the usual locations and just couldn’t shake an unusual feeling. “I was having a terrible time sleeping. Something was bugging me,” said the man. “I was shaking and nervous. It was really strange.”
At 1:30 a.m., he got up, flipped on the lights and decided to check the tickets he had purchased earlier that day. Moments later, he saw all five of the numbers on his ticket matched the Bonus Match 5 numbers drawn Sunday evening.
The lucky man says the winnings will most likely go into savings and he may use a portion of the prize to surprise his wife with new stainless-steel appliances.
He bought the winning ticket at the Weis Market grocery store located on Hanover Pike in Hampstead.

Wins $250,000 Second-Tier Prize
Shirle Demby was helping an elderly relative with his shopping last week when he suggested she buy a lottery ticket. The Silver Spring resident has struggled recently with her finances and agreed she could use a change in luck. Shirle wasn’t sure which game to play, so, following her friend’s advice, she purchased a Mega Millions ticket. Listening to that advice paid off – to the tune of $250,000!
“I stuck the ticket in my glove compartment and didn’t think about it for five days,” she said, laughing. Her messy car glove compartment is a running joke between Shirle and her best friend. “What goes in there isn’t guaranteed to ever come out, my friend says. He can’t believe I was able to find the ticket when I remembered to check those numbers.”
When Shirle did check her Mega Millions ticket, the store clerk initially told her that she’d won $10,000. “I went out to the car to tell my friend, who didn’t believe me. I brought him into the store to prove it and the clerk said that he’d been wrong, that I had actually won $250,000!”
Shirle plans to use her winnings to pay off some of her debt and to help some people in her life. She bought her lucky Mega Millions ticket from Oakdale Fine Wine at 1713 Edmondson Ave. in Catonsville.
Kevin Watkins of Windsor Mill won the $1 million Powerball second-tier
Claims Outstanding Second-Tier Powerball Prize
The last time Kevin Watkins won a notable prize playing the Maryland Lottery, neon Spandex and fanny packs were in style. For years, he kept playing the jackpot games, hoping to top his $1,200 win. The 56-year-old finally beat his previous win with a Powerball ticket paid out to the tune of $1 million.
Kevin was heading back from the county landfill when he decided to pull over and stop at a Royal Farms to get an ICEE. While waiting in line to check out, the state employee decided to buy a Powerball ticket with five numbers. Luck would have it that the last row of numbers on the Windsor Mill man’s ticket was a big winner.
“I checked my tickets at another store a couple of days later and saw that I had to come down to Lottery headquarters,” he said.
After checking with the clerk at the store, Kevin went home to look the numbers up on the Lottery’s website. “My wife was with me when I found out the ticket was worth $1 million. She just kept telling me that I was a little too calm for having won so much.”
Although Kevin’s ticket was only one number shy of winning the Powerball jackpot last month, he’s not complaining. “It would’ve been nice to be able to retire,” he admitted. “I probably would’ve catered lunch at work and put in my two weeks’ notice, but this win is still very nice.”
The couple has been married eight years. They plan to pay a few bills and put the rest toward their retirement fund. “My wife and I have a date night every Friday and we make a point of going out for breakfast on Saturday mornings. I’m sure we’ll put a little of the money toward that as well,” Kevin said.
He bought the lucky ticket at Royal Farms #014 located at 4384 Hollins Ferry Road in Baltimore.
Gifted $50 Grand Slam Ticket Pays Off With Top Prize
There’s no place like home when you’re playing the lottery – just ask a busy sales training instructor and her mother. They love playing the Maryland Lottery – and other lotteries nationwide – and hit it big at home with a Maryland Lottery $50 Grand Slam scratch-off ticket that carried a top prize of $50,000.
The 40-year-old daughter travels often for business and purchases lottery tickets from all over the country to share with her mother. When she returns home, her mom often has a Maryland Lottery ticket waiting for her. Last week, one of those tickets proved lucky.
The Randallstown native reached her car after a busy day, pulled the $5 ticket from her purse and began to scratch. When she finished, she was startled. “My heart was pounding! I was in such disbelief that I had to look at the ticket three times before I recognized that I truly had a $50,000 prize,” she said.
After the win, the lucky daughter immediately called her mother to share the news. Her mother was shocked and surprised, but also happy for her daughter. Since they each give so much to help the other, it only seemed fair to deem the win a team effort. “We do a lot for each other,” the daughter said. “She is my everything.”
The daughter plans to use her share of the winnings to pay bills and will bank the rest. The mother bought the winning ticket at the Franklin Amoco on West Franklin Street in Baltimore.
Wins $50,000 Playing Bonus Match 5 Scratch-off
A mailman made the best delivery of his life when he came to Maryland Lottery headquarters. The lucky man was able to drop off his Bonus Match 5 ticket — worth $50,000!
The 51-year-old Baltimore man has worked as a postal employee for 22 years and has, most likely, delivered Lottery checks to plenty of winners over the years. “This time, I’ll be on the receiving end,” he joked. He plays Mega Millions and Bonus Match 5 frequently, and Pick 3 when he has a hunch. “I have fun with the games, imagining a big jackpot win. I’ve won plenty of times, but never like this,” he shared.
Today’s winner didn’t check his tickets immediately after the drawing. In fact, it took him almost a week to do so.
“My mom’s the big Lottery player in the family. She couldn’t believe that I hadn’t checked my tickets – she kept asking me, so I finally did.” As he compared his ticket to a printout of the winning Bonus Match 5 numbers and saw match after match, he shouted, “What the heck?” He left the store and headed directly to his mom’s house to share the good news and to get assurances that he wasn’t seeing things.
“She looked at it and fell back into her chair laughing,” the man said.
Our lucky mailman has car repairs and his savings account in mind as the new address for his winnings. He found his Lottery luck at the Mars grocery store at 1700 E. Northern Parkway in Baltimore.
