Wedding Bells Ringing for Lottery Scratch-off Winner

April 4th, 2014

$50,000 Monopoly Prize Will Finance Couple’s Big Day

MonopolyA Hagerstown bride-to-be can check a huge “to do” item off her wedding planner. While claiming her $50,000 top prize on the Maryland Lottery Monopoly scratch-off, the happy woman announced plans to spend her win on her fall wedding and a new car.

While she enjoys playing both the scratch-off and board game versions of Monopoly, she finds the scratch-offs take far less time and are just as fun – especially when you win! “This is my favorite ticket,” said the restaurant server. “I play it and win almost every time.”

The lucky woman reinvests her small wins of $5 to $25 into more Monopoly scratch-offs. The day she won her top prize was like any other day. The 33-year-old and her fiancé were running errands and stopped to buy gas en route to pick up one of their three children. While at the store, she bought four of the $5 tickets. Fate smiled on the couple and gave our winner an eye-opening surprise.

“I scratched the second ticket off and showed it to him,” she said. “I just couldn’t believe it.”

Our blushing bride-to-be found her Lottery luck at AC&T Food Mart at 11564 Hopewell Road in Hagerstown.

Dundalk Couple Takes Home Second Big Lottery Win in One Week [VIDEO]

April 2nd, 2014

Claims $100,000 Playing Winner’s Luck and $10,000 Playing Club Casino Scratch-offs

Michelle and Dean Fowler of Dundalk are going to require permanent parking spaces at Maryland Lottery headquarters if they keep finding big scratch-off winners! While celebrating their sixth wedding anniversary last Saturday, Michelle purchased four scratch-offs hoping to repeat their luck from earlier in the week when she and her husband won $100,000 playing a Winner’s Luck scratch-off. Her optimism paid off when they uncovered a $10,000 prize on the Club Casino scratch-off!

Michelle, who is a state employee, told Lottery officials that she wasn’t certain how much she had won after scratching off the $10 Club Casino ticket. “I’m not the best scratch-off player, so I wasn’t really sure what I was looking at it,” Michelle said.

Dean, who regularly buys scratch-offs, knew as soon as his wife uncovered two $1,000 prizes on the ticket that they had won $10,000. “I knew it wasn’t a top prize, so I figured it was worth $10,000,” he said.

Few players can boast of winning multiple large Lottery prizes within the same week. A double win during the week of April Fools’ Day doesn’t help make their situation believable, either. “When I called in to work this morning to tell them I would be late, they didn’t believe me!” shared Michelle, “I mean, how does this happen? It’s incredible.”

They are hoping that Lady Luck will strike one more time. “Good things always come in threes, right?” Michelle joked.

The Fowlers have already enjoyed the benefits from their first win. The pair told Lottery officials that they had paid off all of their bills and ordered a new air conditioning unit and a furnace. Dean, who owns a roofing company, said the first win was definitely helpful because his business slowed down during the harsh winter weather. The family also picked out a suit for their son to wear to his prom in two weeks.

“When we told our son that we had won again, it didn’t really faze him,” Michelle said.

“It’s like old news,” Dean said, laughing.

The Fowlers found their luck at the Royal Farms #102 located at 10740 Pulaski Highway in White Marsh.

Bookkeeper Finds Luck with Numbered Lottery Scratch-off

April 2nd, 2014

Glen Burnie Woman Claims $100,000 Top Prize on Sparkling 7s Scratch-off

142-Sparking-7s-ITVMAn Anne Arundel County bookkeeper who makes her living working with numbers found the digits 6 and 7 especially lucky in March. The Maryland Lottery scratch-off player bought six of the new Sparkling 7s scratch-offs and came away a $100,000 winner!

She scratched each of the $10 tickets at home and discovered one $80 winner in the mix. Following her routine, she took all of the tickets back to the retailer to scan for winners just in case she had missed something on the new ticket, which just launched March 24. Double-checking the tickets certainly paid off – she had a top-prize winning scratch-off ticket in hand!

“When I realized how much I won, I couldn’t breathe,” our winner told Lottery officials when she claimed her prize. Once she regained her composure, the married mother of two called her children to share the amazing news. The 55-year-old was so excited that she went next to her husband’s job to deliver the news in person. When she showed him the winning ticket, her husband at first thought she’d won $1,000. Then, he did a double take and realized that he missed a few important zeroes!

Our winner said she plans to spend her prize on her loving husband. Married for 36 years, the couple has an extended family that includes three grandchildren. “My husband always helps everyone, now it’s his turn to receive,” she said. The wife plans to have his Harley Davidson motorcycle repaired, for example, and they will enjoy time in their favorite vacation hideaway at Deep Creek Lake in Garrett County.

Our winner found her lucky ticket at the Royal Farms located at 200 Oak Manor Drive in Glen Burnie.

Lady Luck Strikes in La Plata Again

April 1st, 2014
Troy and Saundra Heard - Orioles_web

Lucky winners Saundra Heard and her husband Troy were ecstatic to find a $60,000 Orioles scratch-off winner in their hometown of La Plata.

Couple Claim First Top Prize on Maryland Lottery’s Orioles Scratch-Off

Troy and Saundra Heard of La Plata may not be the newest Mega Millions winners, but they certainly have a reason to celebrate. La Plata is not only home to one of the two winning tickets sold in the $414 million Mega Millions jackpot but also to the first lucky winners of the $60,000 top prize on the new Orioles scratch-off.

The Charles County residents’ luck started when Saundra decided to buy four of the Orioles scratch-offs Monday night following an unsuccessful trip to a casino. “We didn’t have much luck at the casino the other night, so I figured it wouldn’t hurt to try a few scratch-offs,” she said.

Although not a big baseball fan, Saundra went straight for the orange and black Orioles tickets at her local Lottery retailer because she knew there were six, $60,000 top-prize tickets available. Later, after Saundra returned from running errands, she split the four tickets with her husband. “He always gets the first and last tickets to scratch,” she said. “Neither of the tickets I scratched were winners.”

The very last $5 ticket that Troy scratched revealed the $60,000 top prize. “We couldn’t believe it!” he said, laughing. “We were just dancing around and I took the ticket away from Saundra because I was afraid she would damage it. We put it under our TV for safekeeping.”

The couple and their young son celebrated the win together before calling friends with the good news. “I called my girlfriends and they didn’t believe me. I had to send pictures of the ticket to prove it wasn’t an April Fools’ Day joke,” Saundra said, laughing.

The winnings will go toward the house the couple purchased a year ago. “We’ve been renovating our basement, so we’ll put it towards that project,” Troy shared.

Lady Luck found the Heards at ABC Liquors located at 22741 Three Notch Road in California, Md.

There are still five remaining top prizes on the Orioles scratch-off ticket, which launched March 24. Additionally, players can enter non-winning tickets on My Lottery Rewards for the chance to win great second-chance prizes on the Orioles scratch-off such as fan of the game, a trip to watch the Orioles play the Cubs in Chicago or to a game in the 2014 World Series.
