Elkridge Firefighter Savors Sizzling $10,000 Lottery Win

May 12th, 2014

Takes Home Top Prize on 10X Cash Scratch-off

10x CashA 49-year-old firefighter from Elkridge is on fire with enthusiasm for the Maryland Lottery’s 10x Cash scratch-off after winning its $10,000 top prize.

The Howard County man usually relaxes after an overnight shift by playing Maryland Lottery scratch-offs. He picks up a few instant tickets on the way home and scratches them once he arrives. This time, our lucky player stopped in Troy Farms Liquors at 6161 Meadowridge Road in Elkridge and bought a variety of tickets. He scratched them at home and thought he had a win on the 10x Cash ticket, but wasn’t sure.

“I was not familiar with this game and didn’t focus on it until the next day,” he said. “Sometimes, I just throw them away! Good thing I didn’t this time.”

He took the ticket to another Lottery retailer to check for a win and got great news! Our winner, who is not married and has no children, plans to use some of his prize to help his extended family. “I consider myself a very giving person and I plan to help my family the best I can,” he said.

This sizzling $10 ticket is stacked with prizes and features more than 30 more $10,000 top prizes in stores.

Senior Parlays $11 Scratch-off Wins into $40,000 Lottery Prize

May 12th, 2014

Wins with Prize Line Bingo Instant Ticket

Prize Line BingoA Brookeville woman had just come back from a trip to Florida and was settling in when she came across a few unclaimed scratch-offs worth $11. Deciding that a quick trip to the store was in order, the 78-year-old grabbed her tickets and took them to the Olney Shell.

Once there, she parlayed her small wins into a $40,000 top-prize scratch-off win.

The mother of six picked out a Prize Line Bingo instant ticket and began scratching. The last of the four bingo cards on the $3 ticket revealed the $40,000 top prize, completely shocking her. “I showed the clerks and they told me I needed to sign the back immediately,” she recalled.

After signing the ticket, the jubilant winner called her son who lives nearby to ask if he would drive her to Lottery headquarters in Baltimore so she could claim her ultimate bingo win. They were soon on their way.

“I’ve only told two of the kids so far,” the Montgomery County woman said. “I’ll tell the rest soon.”

The mother-son pair enjoyed the shared experience of claiming a Maryland Lottery top prize. Her son happily snapped pictures of the Winner’s Lounge as his mother reveled in her win. The lucky lady plans to stay mobile with her winnings and spend some of her cash on four new tires for her car. She nabbed the last top prize on the ticket and found her big bingo win at the Olney Shell at 18040 Georgia Avenue in Olney.

Working Mom Hooting with Happiness After $30,024 Powerball Win

May 12th, 2014

Claims Prize from April 30 Drawing

A hard-working mother of six who was struggling to get through a rough day at work wound up hooting with happiness, thanks to a $30,024 Powerball win.

Her frantic Friday improved as soon as the Prince George’s County resident checked her ticket from the April 30 drawing. She had added Power Play to her five panels, or plays, for the drawing and let the machine quick pick four of the five plays.

Sitting in an empty lunchroom, the engineer checked her ticket line by line. Nothing won on play one, nothing on play two, nothing on play three … wait! She had matched four of the five white balls and the Power Ball and had a Power Play multiplier of 3! The engineer let out a huge celebratory hoot and then tried to calm down before returning to work.

“You have to take a chance on luck every now and again,” our happy winner said. The 50-year-old kept checking her ticket that day to make sure it was really a winner. When she got home, she stashed it in her Bible to keep it safe. She’s still keeping news of her win a secret. What will she do with her prize? Spend it on her children’s college educations!

Want to visit her lucky store? Our winner found her fortune at the Bowie Exxon at 1500 N. W. Crain Highway.

Retiree Waterproofs Nest with $60,000 Orioles Scratch-off Win

May 8th, 2014

Former Federal Worker Plans Roof Repair

140-Orioles-ITVMA Washington, D.C. woman with a leaky roof plans to waterproof her nest after winning $60,000 on a Maryland Lottery Orioles scratch-off.

The former federal worker nabbed the third top prize awarded to date on the $5 instant ticket. A retired White House administrative aide, the 66-year-old has served under the past four administrations. The scratch-off aficionado had dropped off a family member at work in Suitland and was headed home when she had an urge to buy an instant ticket.

“Something just told me to stop and pick up a scratch-off,” she said. She opted for a stop at Suitland’s Auth Road Shell and the Lottery’s new Orioles scratch-off based on that same intuition.

It wasn’t until later that evening that our happy winner remembered to fish the scratch-off out of her purse. “I had been lying in bed, praying that the rain would stop since I had discovered a leak in my ceiling late last week,” she said. Her heart began to flutter wildly as she scratched off the $60,000 win.

“I told myself, ‘Calm down, calm down. You want to live to see this prize,’ ” she said.

Our lucky winner plans to use her prize to fix the roof leak. She also plans to share a portion of the winnings with family. She bought her lucky ticket at Auth Road Shell located at 5120 Auth Road in Suitland.
