What Did You Do on Your Summer Vacation? I Won the Lottery!

August 26th, 2014

Teacher claims top prize on Winner’s Luck scratch-off

108-Winner's-Luck-ITVMAn Upper Marlboro man headed back to school with the ultimate summer vacation story to share with his teaching colleagues: he won $100,000 playing the Maryland Lottery’s Winner’s Luck scratch-off!

The loyal Lottery player and new grandfather ended his summer vacation with the Lottery win. “It has been a very lucky week for me, for my family,” said the 68-year-old man. Lottery luck surprised the Prince George’s County resident after he visited Marlton Liquors in Upper Marlboro.

“I’d just returned from a long flight and wanted to get a Lottery ticket,” he said. “There was no lottery where I’d been visiting. I really enjoy the $10 instant games and have had luck with Winner’s Luck in the past, so I picked it.”

He went home to scratch his ticket and, once there, revealed an abundance of matches. The man was convinced that he was hallucinating. “I immediately called my daughter with the news,” the happy winner said.

He’s back in the classroom with a big smile and a healthy bank account until he decides how to spend his prize. A new car and a place to stay when visiting growing family are on his mind, as is a thank you to the folks at Marlton Liquor. For selling the top-tier scratch-off, the retailer will receive a $1,000 bonus from the Maryland Lottery.

Our happy player claimed the last of the $100,000 top prizes available for this scratch-off. There are still thousands of prize-winning tickets from $10 to $1,000 awaiting discovery at Maryland retailers.

$10,000 Lottery Win Sends Legal Secretary Cruising

August 25th, 2014
Sandra Stocksdale - 10x Cash_web

Sandra Stocksdale Wins $10,000 on 10x Cash Scratch-Off

Reisterstown woman wins top 10X Cash scratch-off prize

A Reisterstown legal secretary and her travel buddy are headed for a summer vacation cruise, thanks to a $10,000 Maryland Lottery 10x Cash scratch-off win.

Sandy Stocksdale of Reisterstown, a loyal Lottery scratch-off player for about a decade, became emotional when she entered the Lottery Winner’s Lounge and saw the giant check for $10,000 with her name on it. “I’m all choked up,” she said, letting her friend do some of the talking for her.

The legal secretary with Gebhardt & Smith in Baltimore often buys Mega Millions and Powerball tickets for the office pool along with scratch-offs for herself. She picked up her winning $10 ticket on her way home one night at Jerry’s Discount Liquors at 14 Westminster Pike in Reisterstown. Imagine her surprise when she found herself holding a top-prize winner with no one around to share her good news! Happy about her good fortune, she returned to the store to tell the clerks about her win.

“They were all thrilled,” the grandmother said. “They have never sold a top ticket before.”

This is her biggest win as well, following a $2,000 scratch-off win in 2011.

She went from the store to visit friends hanging out at the Moose Lodge in town. “I didn’t start shaking until I was in the Moose Lodge,” she said.

In addition to a cruise vacation, she said her 9-year-old grandson and new granddaughter “will be VERY happy.” She has already shared the news with her daughter, of course.

Scratch-off Win Eases Woman’s Water-Damage Woes

August 25th, 2014
Sharon Todd - 10x Cash_web

A $10,000 Maryland Lottery 10x Cash scratch-off win will enable Sharon Todd of Brooklyn to replace water-ruined furniture and other items in her basement apartment.

Claims top-tier $10,000 prize playing a 10x Cash instant ticket

The torrential rains that flooded Baltimore in August did not spare the basement apartment of Sharon Todd of Brooklyn. The loyal Maryland Lottery scratch-off player was fretting over how to afford to replace everything from waterlogged carpet to the soggy sofa.

“I had just gotten off the phone with my daughter because she was giving me her old computer speakers to replace my damaged ones,” the Baltimore resident said. “I figured I’d go to the store to see if I could buy other items that were damaged.” Before shopping, the 53-year-old stopped at Shahverdi’s Liquors at 6719 Chesapeake Center Drive in Glen Burnie to pick up a few scratch-offs.

“The only good luck I had been having was on scratch-off tickets,” Sharon said. “I had won $50 first, then I had a $75 winner off another scratch-off ticket, then a $350 one and a few $25 winners.” She had no idea that her scratch-off winning streak was about to peak. Sharon followed her intuition and bought a 10x Cash scratch-off despite the fact that she rarely buys $10 tickets. To her shock, she won the top-tier $10,000 prize.

“At first, I knew I had won something big but I wanted to make sure so I asked the clerk to scan it. The scanner told me I had to come here to Lottery headquarters to redeem my prize,” she said, chuckling. “After she (the clerk) told me that, I lost it in the store. I screamed and jumped up and down. The poor clerk had to do everything in her power to get me off the ceiling.”

In addition to refurbishing her apartment, Sharon plans to use some of her prize to attend her stepdaughter’s wedding in Florida and pay bills. The 10x Cash scratch-off has six top-tier prizes remaining at Maryland retailers.

Racetrax Rookie Rolling in Maryland Lottery Dough

August 25th, 2014

Retired Fort Washington resident wins more than $44,000

A Fort Washington woman is the latest Maryland Lottery Racetrax player to hit it big with the computer-animated horse racing game, thanks to the Superfecta wager option. A Racetrax rookie, the retired beauty shop manager rarely plays Lottery games and let the machine quick pick horses 4, 5, 8 and 11 for 20 races.

That decision and Lottery luck parlayed her $20 Superfecta bet to a $44,967 prize.

“I was just stunned when they told me how much I’d won,” she said. “I almost fell to the floor.”

Good fortune placed the woman and her son together at Holiday Liquors at 3385 Leonardtown Road in Waldorf. “I saw that Racetrax had a pretty big payout for just a $1 bet so I pointed it out to my son,” the Prince George’s County resident told Lottery officials. Her son, who is familiar with the game, suggested she try her luck. He also recommended the new Superfecta wager that had caught her attention.

“I got my ticket, stuck it away in my purse and didn’t think about it again until the next day,” the 71-year-old said. Her travels the following afternoon brought her near the store so she stopped in to check the ticket. What a wonderful surprise!

Her plans for spending the prize money include buying a motorcycle and enjoying adventure-themed activities. “I’ll have lots of fun with this money,” she said. “I’ve always wanted to learn to ride a motorcycle. The other things are sort of ‘bucket list’ items for me, things I’ve imagined doing but never got around to.”

Our retiree isn’t our only winner. For selling the Racetrax winning ticket, the Lottery retailer will receive a bonus of $449.

August 25th, 2014

Claims $30,000 Prize on Maryland Lottery I Heart Crossword Instant Ticket

I Heart CrosswordA Middletown woman who loves playing the Maryland Lottery’s I Heart Crossword scratch-off saw her loyalty pay off big time. The loyal Lottery player often found luck with the black and red ticket that arrived in stores in February but she really ‘hearts’ the game now. She found a $30,000 winning ticket!

“I couldn’t believe it when I saw that I had won,” she said.

The lucky lady showed the ticket she bought at the Middletown High’s store to her husband, who was equally surprised and happy. She then stashed the scratch-off in her purse for safekeeping. The duo quickly made the hour-long drive into Baltimore to claim their top prize, anxious to have the ticket out of their hands.

“We haven’t told anyone,” the Frederick County woman said. “We might tell our children at some point.”

They also are not sure how they will spend the top prize, which was one of three on the ticket. One $30,000 top prize remains unclaimed along with four second-tier $5,000 prizes. One thing is certain: our 69-year-old winner will continue to play her I Heart Crossword scratch-offs!

The woman found her Lottery luck at Highs #013 located at 4301 Old National Pike in Middletown. For selling a top-tier ticket, the retailer will receive a $300 bonus from the Lottery.
