Armed Forces Vet Has Powerful Possibilities for Powerball Payoff

June 6th, 2016

Birthday number combination leads to $50,000 win

An Anne Arundel County man is still pondering the lucky path he took to win a potent $50,000 Powerball prize in the May 21 drawing. He didn’t realize his good fortune until last week!

“I was scanning the tickets with a retailer when I got a strange message from the machine,” said the winner. Confused, the 80-year-old Armed Forces veteran handed the ticket to the retailer and asked for help. He not only got help, he got confirmation that his win was large enough to require a trip to Lottery headquarters in Baltimore to claim the prize and hearty congratulations from the excited retailer.

The lucky player was the only Marylander to win a $50,000 prize in the drawing and one of 47 players nationwide to do so. No one won the jackpot, which has rolled for weeks and reached $123 million for the Wednesday, June 8 drawing.

The Hanover resident began playing Powerball about six months ago, he said, experimenting with a set of birthday numbers. He purchased his lucky two-draw ticket at Grand Ritchie Liquors on 8149-D Ritchie Highway in Pasadena and won his $50,000 prize on the second drawing.

“I’ve thought about a lot of things that I could do with the prize money,” said the winner. He told Lottery officials the prize would most likely go to pay off a car loan and other bills.

Artist Gets Her Claws on Winning Crab Ca$h Scratch-off

June 3rd, 2016
$10K Crab Cash-Smith_web

Baltimore artist Carolyn Smith enjoys her $10,000 Crab Ca$h win.

Finds $10,000 top prize on $2 game

Baltimore’s Carolyn Smith did just what Maryland Lottery commercials suggest players do this summer – get her claws on a Crab Ca$h scratch-off. In fact, the artist not only netted a $10,000 top prize in the game but also confirmed that her play strategy is catching winners.

“I really do enjoy scratch tickets,” said the 36-year-old. “I get a few at least twice a week.”

She found her Lottery luck at the 7-Mart in Baltimore, reversing her losing trend with the $2 game. Carolyn tracks her win-loss record on all the games she plays.

“If I don’t have luck with a game after a few times playing, I wait a few days and then try again,” she said. “It sort of feels like by then I’m due for a win.”

Her system works for her! She’s won prizes of $500 several times over the years using this strategy and just discovered another $500 win days before her Crab Ca$h find.

“I’ve had zero luck with Crab Ca$h for a long time so finding a match really surprised me,” she said. “When I saw the prize, I was blown away.” Wanting to get to Lottery headquarters immediately to claim her prize and not trusting herself to make the trip alone, she called her best friend.

“I needed her help,” she said. “I thought I was going to have a heart attack.”

The duo came straight from the 7-Mart at 1417 Fayette Street to Lottery headquarters. Carolyn’s friend told Lottery officials that she dropped what she was doing after receiving the call. “I could tell from her voice that, whatever was going on, it was a big deal.”

Our lucky artist and her fiancée will dedicate the Crab Ca$h winnings to the purchase of their future new car. Crab Ca$h went on sale in Maryland stores in April and Carolyn’s top-prize win leaves three more $10,000 winning scratch-offs awaiting discovery.

Cecil County Woman Strikes Lottery Gold Twice

June 3rd, 2016

Wins $10,000 and $1,000 playing $100,000 Gold Rush scratch-off

243-$100,000-Gold-Rush-ITVMWhat are the odds of winning two big prizes on back-to-back Maryland Lottery scratch-offs? The chances are slim, but it happened to an Elkton woman who confessed that she hardly ever plays the Lottery’s instant ticket games.

The 67-year-old said she had just finished some grocery shopping and visited the Stop-N-Go at 1 East Cecil Avenue in North East to get gas. While there, the lucky player decided to purchase two $100,000 Gold Rush scratch-offs. “I just picked two tickets, it didn’t even matter what game,” she said.

The cashier handed her the popular $10 scratch-offs and the Cecil County player put them in her purse and went home. Eventually, she sat down at the kitchen table to play her games. The first instant ticket she scratched revealed a 20x symbol above a $500 prize.

“I’m normally good at math,” she said, “but I just couldn’t figure this out.” When the lucky player realized she’d won $10,000, she proceeded to scratch the next instant ticket and got another surprise! “This game showed a bunch of coin symbols above many different amounts,” she said. “I just could not believe it!” She had scratched a $1,000 winner!

The very lucky woman plans to pay a few bills with her winnings, treat herself to something nice and save the rest.

There are still plenty of big prizes on the $100,000 Gold Rush game including three $100,000 top prizes, one $20,000 prize and eight more $10,000 prizes.
