Woman Turns Wait Time into Win Time with Powerball Play

October 7th, 2014

Baltimore resident plans to share her $1 million good fortune

A Baltimore City employee who travels with her sister to and from work every day often waits in the afternoons for her sibling to meet her. On Sept. 29, inspired by seeing a group of happy Maryland Lottery winners, she invested during that down time in a Powerball ticket that turned her into the state’s newest millionaire.

As fate would have it, the 53-year-old data entry specialist was waiting in the right spot to absorb some spillover Lottery luck.

“I noticed several people celebrating a winning ticket in front of a store near where I waited for my sister,” she said. The woman decided to go inside the lucky retailer, which is Holiday Food Mart at 234 Holiday Street in Baltimore.

“I was debating getting either a Powerball ticket or a snack,” she said, “when I figured that I’d be better off skipping the extra calories.”

She bought one $2 ticket and let the terminal quick pick her numbers. Several days later, her sister alerted her that the morning news had reported the sale of a $1 million winning Powerball ticket on Holiday Street. The two women quickly compared her ticket to the winning numbers on the Lottery’s website and began celebrating the life-changing win.

“You should have seen us – screaming, jumping, running from room to room,” she said. “It was wonderful, though I didn’t really believe it could be true.”

The Baltimore resident plans to pay bills and dedicate the rest of her Powerball winnings to her family and friends. Her sibling reported, “My sister helps everyone around her. The only thing that has kept her from giving more is that she didn’t have more to give. Now she does.” The quiet winner responded, “This is truly a blessing.”

Veteran Prays for Help, Wins $50,000 Lottery Prize

October 6th, 2014

Grateful Princess Anne man claims top prize on Bonus Match 5 game

A 72-year-old Vietnam veteran recently began praying for help as his wife’s health issues worsened and the family’s debt grew to dire proportions. The answer to the grateful man’s prayers came in the form of a $50,000 Maryland Lottery win.

“My wife had had four strokes and I just didn’t know where I was going to get the money to pay for everything,” said the Princess Anne resident. “I was responsible. I paid my bills on time and I saved for a rainy day but medical emergencies can quickly eat through savings.”

The Eastern Shore retiree had already cut back on expenses, including his Lottery games. On Oct. 1, when he was out paying bills, he stopped at the Goose Creek Convenience Store at 30293 Mt. Vernon Road in Princess Anne. Just as he began to walk out the door, something spoke to his spirit and told him to take $2 from his wallet and buy a Maryland Lottery Bonus Match 5 ticket.

“I would pray each night for help with this,” he said. “One of the hardest things I’ve had to do is watch my wife go through having these strokes. So, I’d pray for a miracle to help.”

The Somerset County resident interpreted the impulse to play Bonus Match 5 as a possible answer to his prayers. He checked the three game boards on his ticket the next day.

“I quickly noticed I had the first number, then the second and third and so on.” The machine had quick-picked a $50,000 top-prize ticket for him! “I feel blessed,” the happy winner said. In addition to paying the family’s debt, the lucky man plans to give back to the social services in his community that have helped his family during their time of need.

For selling the winning ticket, the retailer will receive a $500 bonus from the Lottery.

7-Spot Keno Ticket Hits the Spot, Delivers $50,000 Win

October 2nd, 2014

Happy Harford County homemaker claims payout

A 7-spot Keno play delivered a $50,000 win to a happy Harford County homemaker, whose love of the game is shared by her husband of more than 20 years.

“We play occasionally, but have never won anything like this,” said the husband. “I couldn’t believe it when she called me. What a great phone call to receive!”

The 47-year-old homemaker bought the 7-spot ticket at the MacPhail Exxon for only one drawing. She matched all seven numbers, which would typically lead to a $2,500 win. But, for this game, the lucky lady spent $20 on the drawing to generate the $50,000 win.

The residents of the town of Street, Md., plan to spend their prize paying off bills and taking a nice vacation. For selling the ticket, the Exxon station located at 600 W. MacPhail Road in Bel Air will receive a $500 bonus. Keno games take place every four minutes and can be played at Maryland Lottery retailers across the state.

Dad’s Lucky Choice Gives Daughter a $50,000 Lottery Win

October 2nd, 2014

Riverdale woman claims top prize on Bonus Match 5 drawing

A Riverdale woman is $50,000 richer after asking her father, a loyal Maryland Lottery player, to buy her a ticket to any Lottery game. The lucky lady was on the phone with her dad just as he was purchasing his regular assortment of games at the Riverdale Sunoco.

“It didn’t matter what game,” recalled the 23-year-old winner. “I just told him to get me a ticket, too.” Her obliging dad bought her a Bonus Match 5 ticket and then paid for his Lottery games.

He went on about his day and didn’t give the ticket to his daughter right away. In fact, the Sept. 29 drawing also came and went and neither of them checked the winning numbers until the next day.

“I checked and double checked, but I still wasn’t sure,” the man said. He went to a nearby retailer to scan the ticket and the message that appeared told him to come to Lottery headquarters in Baltimore to claim the prize. “That’s when I knew this was real,” he said.

When the lucky winner’s dad shared the good news with her, the Prince George’s County woman was overwhelmed. “It is incredible, out of all the tickets he bought, that only one was a winner,” the college student said. She attends a local university.

The fortunate player plans to spend her prize to pay off debt and help her family. After that, she said, she will treat herself. She intends to keep asking her lucky dad to buy her a ticket every now and then!

For selling the winning ticket, the Riverdale Sunoco located at 6551 Riverdale Road receives a $500 bonus from the Lottery.
