Big Bingo Scratch-off Win to Build Retiree’s Nest Egg

May 20th, 2013

D.C. Resident Plans to Live Life “One Day at a Time”

Red Line Bingo TriplerA lucky D.C. woman who has favored the popular Red Line Bingo Tripler scratch-off ticket since the game began, couldn’t sleep a wink last Thursday night. The woman, who regularly plays scratch-offs and has won multiple prizes of up to $300, scratched her ticket that night and was shocked to see the six-figure prize of $100,000 revealed. She quickly hid the ticket deep in a dresser drawer beneath a stack of clothes before trying to go to sleep for the night.

“I didn’t tell anybody about it last night,” said the 63-year-old retired healthcare worker. “I couldn’t sleep at all.”

She didn’t get up to look at the ticket again until 9 a.m. the next morning, following hours of tossing, turning and worrying. “I had to make sure the winning ticket was real.”

The $100,000 will go into her rainy day fund to cover unexpected future costs. “I’ll take it one day at a time,” she said. The lucky winner also plans to share some of the funds with her four sons and nine grandchildren. “I’ll play more now,” she said.

The Washington, D.C. resident bought her lucky ticket at 2000 Market located at 5950 Martin Luther King Highway in Capitol Heights.

Robin Teats - Stacked with Cash

Robin Teats and her husband celebrate her
$30,000 Stacked with Cash win!

Uncertain Future a Little Rosier after $30,000 Scratch Win

With her husband facing surgery in the coming weeks and no idea as to how long he’ll be out of work, Robin Teats of Essex told Lottery officials today that the $30,000 prize she’d just claimed took a lot of weight off the family’s collective shoulders. “This will buy us some time, keep the wolves at bay.”

Robin’s husband picked out the Stacked With Cash winning ticket since that game had been successful for them in the past. “He scratched it and started shaking like he was going into shock,” Robin reported. “He kept saying, ‘No way!’ ” Their minds instantly focused on the timing of this win. “This really couldn’t have come at a better time for our family.”

Robin, a state employee, plans to dedicate her winnings to paying current bills and those that will pop up while her husband is recovering from surgery. Their good fortune found them at the Royal Farms convenience store at 4015 Northpoint Boulevard in Baltimore. The Stacked With Cash scratch-off has one $30,000 winner still in stores.

Powerball Jackpot Increases Again to $600 Million

May 16th, 2013

UPDATE: May 17, 2013

Highest Powerball Jackpot in Game’s History

It’s time to get those tickets, Marylanders – the Powerball jackpot has been raised yet again and this time it’s a record-breaker. Nationwide sales pushed Saturday night’s jackpot from $550 million to a record-breaking $600 million. Along with becoming the largest Powerball jackpot ever, it’s also the second-largest jackpot in United States history. The cash option is now $376.9 million.

The largest multi-state jackpot in U.S. history was the Mega Millions $656 million jackpot in March 2012, which produced three winning tickets. One of the winning tickets was claimed by three Maryland public school employees, who took home a $218.6 million portion of the record-breaking prize.

In addition to the ballooning Powerball jackpot, another multi-state jackpot game has also been on a roll. Tonight’s Mega Millions drawing is worth $190 million.

Watch Powerball drawings on Wednesday and Saturday evenings at 11:22 p.m. on WBAL-TV, Channel 11.

Money Talks for Deserving Calvert County Woman

May 15th, 2013

Wins Top Prize Playing Money Talks Scratch-off

Money TalksAlthough she has kept news of her big win fairly quiet, one lucky Calvert County woman had to tell someone about her $50,000 Money Talks scratch-off win. The 45-year-old decided on a creative way to share the news with her sister. She sent a photo of the winning ticket. Her sister replied to her message simply by writing, “You deserve it.”

The sisters were on a drive a few weeks earlier when they picked up a couple of scratch-offs. “We work hard, so we were treating ourselves and relaxing a bit,” she said. That evening before bed, the computer programmer scratched her tickets, revealing a matching Money Number on one of the tickets. When she saw that the corresponding prize was $50,000, she quickly took a picture of the lucky ticket and sent it to her sister.

Although the winning moment was very exciting, the winner is exceedingly private and plans to tell no one else about her big win, preferring to find ways to privately share the prize with her family. The lucky Money Talks scratch-off was purchased at the 7-11 convenience store on Perry Hall Boulevard in White Marsh.
