Megaplier option multiplies prize to $25,000
It’s a great day for a very happy lottery player from Clarksville, who won $25,000 on a Mega Millions ticket.
The 52-year-old Maryland Lottery player won his big Mega Millions prize by matching four numbers plus the Mega Ball in the July 28 drawing. For an extra $1, the lucky winner added the Megaplier to his ticket, and that decision boosted his $5,000 prize to $25,000 because the July 28 drawing included a 5x Megaplier.
The Howard County resident found his Lottery luck at Lark Brown Liquors located at 6590 Old Waterloo Road in Elkridge.
Tickets for the Mega Millions jackpot game are $1, with the option to add the Megaplier for an additional $1. The Megaplier multiplies all prizes other than the jackpot up to five times. The game allows players to choose five numbers from 1 through 75 and one Mega Ball number from 1 through 15. Mega Millions drawings are held twice a week, on Tuesday and Friday nights on WBAL-TV, so there are plenty of opportunities to play! Winning numbers are available at mdlottery.com and on your smartphone by downloading the free MD Lottery app.
Claims $50,000 top prize on You Win scratch-off game
A Windsor Mill resident hit her lottery luck on a You Win scratch-off just in time for the arrival of her first baby.
The expectant mother was joined by one of her sisters and their mother as she claimed a $50,000 top prize at Maryland Lottery headquarters in Baltimore.
“It’s the perfect time,” the 19-year-old said.
Lottery luck came to call at a 7-Eleven in Baltimore when the lucky woman bought two scratch-off tickets to take home with her.
The mother-to-be was by herself when she scratched the winning ticket and couldn’t believe her luck when she saw it was the top prize. She immediately called her two sisters and her mother.
Her older sister, who accompanied the winner to claim her prize, said, “I didn’t believe it. I told her I needed to see the ticket!”
Her mother and her other sister had the same reactions to the news of her big lottery win: utter shock.
“I get it,” said our happy winner. “It’s hard to believe when you say that type of amount to someone.”
The Baltimore County resident hid the ticket at home in a safe for four days until she could claim her prize. She said she planned to put her Lottery winnings into savings and use it to get ready for the arrival of her baby, due in a few days. But she also said that first she was going to celebrate by taking her family to dinner.
Launched in November, the You Win scratch-off still has one $50,000 top prize and one $5,000 prize waiting for you to win!
Also a winner is the 7-Eleven located at 2701 North Rolling Road in Windsor Mill. For selling the winning ticket the store will receive a $500 bonus from the Maryland Lottery.

A Pasadena mom who loves Maryland Lottery crossword scratch-offs found the perfect word while playing a Big Play Crossword instant ticket: Winner!
The beauty supplies employee is $100,000 richer, thanks to her top-prize win on the $10 game.
The 43-year-old found her Lottery luck at Putty Hill Liquors in Baltimore. “I bought a lot of them,” she said. “When I’ve got a lot of time I like to play them.”
Her husband was with her while she scratched off the tickets in the store. When she spotted the big winner, she was very excited but said she remained calm and quiet so no one would know about her win other than her husband. “I told him, ‘Shhh, don’t tell anybody,’ ” she said.
They hid the ticket at home in a secret place until they could claim their prize at Lottery headquarters in Baltimore. The lucky winner plans to pay off her credit card bills and her car payment with her prize and then enjoy a shopping outing.

|Lottery luck comes to call for the second time for Dundalk’s Roosevelt Hensley Jr. His new $10,000 win on a Blingo Bingo scratch- off follows a $50,000 scratch-off win in 2005.|
Wins $10,000 playing Blingo Bingo scratch-off
Roosevelt Hensley Jr. is no stranger to Maryland Lottery wins. However, neither he nor his family could believe that he just won his second big scratch-off prize in 10 years. A lucky $10 Blingo Bingo scratch-off delivered his latest $10,000 prize.
The painter from Baltimore County found his good fortune on a routine Saturday afternoon. He bought four Blingo Bingo scratch-offs at the US Mart located at 2139 Dundalk Avenue in Dundalk and took them home to enjoy. While watching TV that evening, the Dundalk man scratched his tickets and discovered the first three were non-winners. That’s when he got a “funny feeling” about the fourth instant ticket.
The father of six, who typically wins small amounts on scratch-offs, thought the odds were good that his last instant ticket would carry a prize of $50 or $100. Was he ever in for a surprise! Scratching that ticket, Roosevelt first saw what he thought was a $500 win. The 67-year-old took his ticket back to the US Mart to cash it and buy more scratch-offs. When he scanned the ticket, however, the message from the Lottery terminal said “see Lottery agent.” He knew he’d hit it big for a second time.
“That’s when I put my glasses on and really looked at it again,” said the happy Lottery player.
After looking closer at the scratch-off, he saw that he had won not $500 but $10,000! He couldn’t believe that good fortune had found him again and called his son with the news. Having seen his dad win $50,000 on a scratch-off in 2005, his son responded, “You’re kidding! Again?”
Roosevelt kept his ticket close at all times. He hid it in his pocket for two days and in a book next to his bed when he slept. “I wanted to keep it close by,” he said.
The lucky man plans to use the prize for a trip to Ocean City with his daughter, who just graduated from high school. Roosevelt is also going to spend his prize on property taxes, will put the money into the bank and buy a Multi- Match ticket!
The Blingo Bingo scratch-off still has three $100,000 top prizes available and six $10,000 prizes.
Claims Monopoly game’s $50,000 top prize
A trip to Harpers Ferry National Historical Park in West Virginia gave a Westminster man a “magic wand” that may – or may not – have played a role in his landing a $50,000 top prize on a Maryland Lottery Monopoly scratch-off.
The saga of the lucky wand began when the winner and his friends took a trip to Harpers Ferry. The sales engineer discovered an odd object in the water. He investigated and saw it was a piece of wire with years of sediment built around it. His friends teased that this “magic wand” would bring them luck.
“We all joked that this had magic power to gamble,” he said.
On his way home, the Carroll County man decided to stop at a Jiffy Mart in Westminster to buy two scratch-offs. Reflecting on his friends’ comments, he took his “magic wand” into the store. The 24-year-old scratched the first $5 Monopoly scratch-off and was surprised to see that it carried the $50,000 top prize! He scratched the second instant ticket and saw that it, too, was a $10 winner.
“I didn’t believe it, so I gave it right to the teller to check,” he said.
He said the retailer at the Jiffy Mart, who he chats with occasionally when he buys instant tickets, looked at him in disbelief and confirmed the big win. After the shock wore off, the happy scratch fan asked the retailer for a sandwich bag because he feared his sweaty hands would damage the ticket.
The lucky man was still nervous about the ticket when he got home so he hid it behind a picture frame for two days until he could claim his prize at Lottery headquarters in Baltimore. After hiding the ticket, he shared his good news with his family!
The superstitious player plans to spend his winnings on a trip to Ireland or Iceland, will invest some of the prize and save the rest.
The $5 Monopoly game still has one unclaimed $50,000 top prize and three unclaimed $5,000 prizes. For selling the top-prize winning ticket, the Jiffy Mart located at 1 Magna Way in Westminster will receive a $500 bonus from the Lottery.
Capitol Heights resident claims $10,000 prize
After years of playing Powerball, a retired military man saw his lucky ship come in with a $10,000 prize from the game’s June 20 drawing.
The 53-year-old, who plays Powerball and Mega Millions regularly at various locations, found his Lottery luck at the Walker Mill Amoco located at 6701 Walker Mill Road in Capitol Heights. He spent $4, playing his own lucky numbers, for that night’s drawing. He didn’t realize he’d won for weeks because the Prince George’s County resident only checks his tickets once a month!
The Trinidad native hid the winning ticket in a special pocket in a pair of trousers to keep it safe until he could claim his prize at Lottery headquarters in Baltimore. He didn’t tell anyone about his win! He plans to share some of his prize with his daughter and will use his winnings to travel back to Trinidad for a visit. In addition to enjoying his military retirement for the past 20 years, the lucky winner travels to Trinidad every few years. He’s happy another trip is around the corner!
