One number shy of the jackpot
Knowing the Mega Millions jackpot had reached over $550 million, an Edgewater man made sure to pick up a few tickets for the drawing on his way home from visiting a relative. Out of the 363,610 Maryland winners from the Tuesday, Dec. 17 drawing, he was the only one to take home the $1 million second-tier prize.
The man, who works for the federal government, told Lottery officials that once he heard the news that there was a $1 million Mega Millions ticket sold at that store, he knew he needed to check his tickets.
Two days after the drawing, the man took his Mega Millions ticket, with five Quick Pick draws, to the store to have it scanned. He knew the minute a message popped up instructing him to go to Lottery headquarters that he had won something big. Quickly, he signed the back of his ticket and went home.
“I looked up the numbers at home and sure enough on the third line, I had all the numbers except for the Mega Ball,” he said.
Immediately, the man shared the good news with his wife and then proceeded to call his mother. “He called me and sent me a picture of the ticket,” he mom said.
To keep the ticket safe until he could come into Lottery headquarters in Baltimore, the man put the ticket into a safe. “We actually brought the safe with us in the car today,” he laughed.
The man and his wife plan to invest the money for their family’s financial future. When prodded a little further, the man admitted that there were, “One or two date nights in the future,” for the couple.
The lucky man picked up his life-changing ticket at the Highs located at 158 Old Mill Bottom Road in Annapolis.
White Marsh mother wins $55,555 on a gifted scratch-off
A Baltimore County mother received a Maryland Lottery scratch-off ticket as a gift from her son on Christmas. Her son had decided to purchase $5 Funky 5s scratch-offs for each adult family member who attended their holiday gathering in White Marsh. His gift certainly kicked off a joyous celebration once the lucky woman scratched her ticket.
“I only buy Lottery tickets once in a while, usually when the jackpot is really big,” the mother of four told officials. “So when my son gave me the ticket I was pleased that he’d thought of me, but to be honest, it didn’t do much for me.”
That sentiment would change a few minutes later, however when she unveiled a sizeable prize. “I scratched part of the ticket and saw that I’d won $10,000 – I was shocked,” she said.
The whole family celebrated the win not knowing more excitement was to come only moments later. “It was pretty fun in there, pretty crazy,” she recalled. “And then someone saw that I hadn’t scratched the whole thing.”
If the $10,000 Funky 5’s win shook the walls of the house, the celebration once the family realized the ticket was worth $55,555, lifted the roof. The woman and her husband came into Lottery headquarters first thing on Thursday morning to claim her Christmas prize. The lucky couple plan to spend much of their winnings paying off a recently purchased RV.
The woman’s son purchased the Funky 5s ticket from the Edgewood Amoco Station at 2201 Pulaski Highway in Edgewood. The game has three more $55,555 winning tickets in stores.
Found an early Christmas Eve surprise while out to dinner with friends
A Suitland man was out to dinner with a few close friends to celebrate Christmas Eve when he decided to purchase four of the brand new $5 Biggest Taxes Paid Ever scratch-offs. He would’ve been fine with the $20 prizes he won on the first two tickets, but when the third ticket revealed the $50,000 top prize, he couldn’t believe his eyes.
“I just looked at the ticket again and again,” the 73-year-old man said. “I couldn’t believe it.”
His two close friends, who were also seated at the table, leaned over to see what had their friend so confused. The group quickly realized that the ticket was a top prize winner. Not just any top prize winner – it was a taxes-paid top prize.
“Everyone in the restaurant started buying the tickets,” his friend, who accompanied him to Lottery headquarters, shared. “They sold out the entire roll!”
Eager to claim his prize, the winner called Lottery headquarters to see if he could come in to claim his prize that same night. “I called, but the office was closed for the holiday. I put the ticket into a safe and waited,” he said.
The lucky winner plans to use the money for dental work and a trip to Puerto Rico. “I told all of my grandchildren and they all asked for money for Christmas,” he laughed. “We’ll see.”
It’s safe to say this lucky Suitland man will be going back to where he bought his lucky ticket at Marlow Wings located at 4147 Branch Avenue in Temple Hills.
