Orioles Scratch-off Prize Caught By Pennsylvania Couple

June 26th, 2014

The $60,000 win came days before their 30th anniversary

140-Orioles-ITVMA Pennsylvania man stopped at Village Liquors in Emmitsburg on Tuesday to pick up a few things, including the popular Orioles scratch-off. When his first ticket revealed a $10 prize, he decided to parlay his win for two more of the baseball-themed scratch-offs. A decision that earned him a $60,000 top prize win!

“I never turn my winnings back in for more tickets,” the man explained. “For some reason I decided to do that.”

The man was in his truck when he revealed the prize.

“He sat there for half an hour just staring at the ticket,” his wife teased. “When he got home he told me we needed to talk.”

Expecting bad news, his wife took a deep breath and waited for her husband to share his news. He pulled out the ticket and handed it to his wife. Together they looked at the scratch-off and confirmed their win.

While the drive was a little over an hour and a half from Fairfield, Pa., the couple didn’t mind the extra time together. “We had a few reasons for coming in today. Well I guess you could say we had 60,000 reasons to come in,” the woman laughed. “We just celebrated our 30th wedding anniversary last weekend so this came at a good time.”

The lucky couple is still trying to decide what to do with their winnings, but one thing is already set in stone. “We’re going to Ocean City for a vacation,” the woman said. “We love to eat at certain places and visit places like Assateague.”

The winning Orioles scratch-off was purchased at the Village Liquors located at 101 Silo Hill Rd. in Emmitsburg. There is one remaining top prize on the ticket and seven remaining $5,000 prizes.

Baltimore Man Feels Blessed by Lottery Scratch-off Win

June 26th, 2014

Cherry-Picks $10,000 winning Cherry Tripler ticket

Maryland Lottery scratch-offs are now the game of choice for a Baltimore man, who claimed the $10,000 top prize on a Cherry Tripler scratch-off. The long-time player of other Lottery games considers his luck as a scratch-off novice to be a blessing for his family.

Good fortune found the 54-year-old when he stopped at New Guilford Liquors at 2801 Guilford Avenue in Baltimore on his way to work. The beauty supply warehouse worker planned to buy a Mega Millions ticket that Friday but then saw the shop’s instant ticket selection.

“I hadn’t noticed Cherry Tripler before, so I figured it might be lucky to try something new,” he told Lottery officials.

Later that evening, the father of four grown children looked at his tickets starting with the $2 Cherry Tripler scratch-off. He found triple matches of moons and clovers on two of the eight games on the scratch-off and revealed the two prizes of $5,000 each. “I just started saying, ‘Thank you, thank you,’ ” the man said. He attributes his Maryland Lottery luck to help from above and considers the $10,000 prize a blessing.

“Even though they’re grown with lives of their own, I’m anxious to be able to help my children when they need me,” he said. “This will allow me to help.”

The Cherry Tripler scratch-off debuted in April. This $10,000 win is the first top-tier prize claimed in the game. Three more top prize winning tickets await lucky players.

Lottery Win Leaves Dental Patient All Smiles

June 25th, 2014

Claims $10,000 top prize on 10X Cash scratch-off

10x CashA fearful dental patient who sometimes cringes at the thought of an office visit decided to treat herself to a Maryland Lottery scratch-off on the way to her appointment.

Her stop at the Royal Farms #052 at 2410 East Joppa Road in Baltimore erased all of her appointment jitters. In fact, the Parkville woman smiled from ear to ear in the dentist chair after winning $10,000 on a 10x Cash scratch-off.

“When I realized I had won, I just wanted to hurry and get here (Lottery headquarters) so I didn’t pay the dental checkup any mind,” said the 50-year-old woman. “You would not believe it, but my lips are still numb. That’s how quickly I rushed over.”

The lucky player plans to treat her family to a meal at Mo’s restaurant, take a trip to Ocean City in September and pay bills with her winnings. The $10 game, which had over 100,000 prizes between $50 and $500 when it launched last year, still has 17 top prizes of $10,000 awaiting discovery at retailers’ stores.

Landscaper Seeing Green with $100,000 Maryland Lottery Win

June 23rd, 2014

Great Big Bingo scratch-off brings Lottery luck to Worchester County Woman

Great Big BingoLandscaper Teresa Senft from the small Eastern Shore town of Newark is seeing lots of green these days, but not just the leafy kind found in the form of perennials and annuals. The happy Maryland Lottery scratch-off player just won $100,000!

Teresa and her friends made the long drive to Lottery headquarters in Baltimore to claim the final $100,000 top prize available on the Lottery’s popular Great Big Bingo instant game. She found her Lottery luck at the 7-Eleven at 2611 Philadelphia Avenue in Ocean City.

“I was just shocked when we scratched the ticket, absolutely couldn’t speak,” the 44-year-old told Lottery officials. The first to break the silence was Teresa’s close friend Mike.

“He looked at me,” she told us, “smiled wide and shouted, ‘Right On!’ ” The pair reports that they’ve enjoyed a “very cool week” knowing that the prize will resolve many of their immediate financial concerns.

“We have some breathing room now,” Teresa confided, adding that it is “a huge relief.”

Teresa and Mike’s family and friends will first feel the impact of her winnings. “There are some people around us that have had real rough times recently,” said the Worcester County woman. “It’ll be good to be able to help them.” A new car is also in Teresa’s future.

While Great Big Bingo’s last $100,000 prize is spoken for, the $5 game still sports a $10,000 prize, four $5,000 prizes and eight $1,000 prizes. Players enjoy six cards of fun per instant ticket and can enter non-winning tickets in the My Lottery Rewards player loyalty program.
