Baltimore Nurse Enjoys $50,000 Lottery Birthday Surprise

July 29th, 2014

Wins second-tier prize on Lucky Millionaire scratch-off

Lucky MillionaireA Baltimore woman’s birthday celebration hit a new high after she “unwrapped” her Maryland Lottery gift to herself and revealed a $50,000 winning Lucky Millionaire scratch-off!

The 38-year-old decided to purchase one $20 ticket for her birthday. After leaving the Baltimore Shoppers on Smith Avenue, she scratched off the ticket and saw her big win.

“What a great birthday gift,” the nurse said. “I only play every now and then, but thought I would treat myself since it was my birthday.”

The Philippines native brought her dad with her to Lottery headquarters in Baltimore to claim the prize. “He just moved to this country recently and asked me if people really win,” she told Lottery officials. “Now I can show him that it really does happen!”

With her winnings, the married mother of two plans to pay bills. She hasn’t decided what she will do with the rest of her prize. She found her winning ticket at the Shoppers located at 2801 Smith Ave. The Lucky Millionaire scratch-off still has two $1 million and five $50,000 prizes remaining on the ticket.

Morning Cup of Joe Leads Man to Lottery Fortune

July 25th, 2014

Baltimore City resident claims $50,000 prize on $1 Million Fortune scratch-off

158-$1-Million-Fortune-ITVM_P1-AquaA Baltimore man got an extra eye-opening jolt one recent morning on his way to work when he stopped at the Wise Avenue 7-Eleven for his morning cup of Joe. When he reached the cash register, he spotted Maryland Lottery scratch-offs and bought the first $20 instant ticket he saw.

What a shock! The sight of that $20 $1 Million Fortune ticket in his hand jolted him wide awake when he realized he held a $50,000 winning scratch-off.

“When I saw that I won, I just froze,” said the father of two. He called his wife of 19 years to share the great news and she was equally astonished.

Visiting the Lottery’s Winner’s Lounge isn’t a new experience for the 38-year-old. The lucky player won two big prizes totaling $55,000 combined about 10 years ago. He also knows his way around a playslip, being an avid Pick 3/Pick 4 player.

The self-employed construction contractor plans to save most of his winnings because he and his family already have vacation plans. He does plan to buy his son a new car and will have plenty left for more coffee purchases!

Want to follow his Lottery luck? Visit the 7-Eleven located at 7901 Wise Avenue in Baltimore. The retail store also wins by receiving a $500 bonus from the Lottery for selling a winning $50,000 scratch-off. Three $1 million top-prize winning tickets and six $50,000 second-tier winners are still waiting for discovery at Lottery retailers.
