Cecil County Man Takes Home $50,000 Second-Chance Prize

February 26th, 2014
Eddie Staples - Monopoly

Eddie Staples wins first Monopoly second chance drawing

Four additional Monopoly drawings remain

Conowingo resident Eddie Staples has had quite a year. At the end of January, he was overjoyed when the Maryland Lottery informed him that he had won a television through its Tech the Halls contest. He had no idea that win was just the beginning of his Lottery luck. Yesterday, he was selected from more than 107,000 entries as the first Monopoly second-chance contest $50,000 winner.

“I screamed when I learned I won the TV last month and my wife thought I was crazy,” the 35-year-old told Lottery officials. “When I found out I won the $50,000, I asked her if it was ok to scream this time.”

The lucky winner said that he had never won more than $100 before. “It’s still unbelievable,” he said. “I thought maybe when I got here and saw my name on the big check, I would believe it, but I still don’t.”

Eddie and his wife Christa, who have a seven-year-old autistic daughter, have big plans for the $50,000 prize. In addition to making a down payment on a house and buying a new computer for Christa, they will spend the winnings on a trip to Ocean City this summer to participate in Surfers Healing, which is a program that teaches autistic children to surf.

“We went last year, but we had to come home the same day,” the winner said. “This year, we’ll get to stay overnight, which will be great.”

The Monopoly scratch-off ticket has four instant $50,000 prizes remaining, along with four more second-chance drawings. To participate in the contest, players enter their non-winning Monopoly tickets through My Lottery Rewards.

February 26th, 2014

Jackpot Rolls to $216 million for Friday’s Drawing

Attention, Mega Millions players! If you bought a ticket at the 7-Eleven in Essex for the Tuesday, Feb. 25 drawing, you may be Maryland’s newest millionaire. One lucky Maryland player and one Arizona player matched five of the winning numbers in the drawing to capture the $1 million second-tier prize.

The winning ticket sold at the 7-Eleven at 25 Eastern Boulevard carries the numbers 12-18-25-35-66 with Mega ball number 15 and the optional Megaplier number of 5. The retailer will receive a $1,000 bonus for selling the ticket. Our lucky winner has 182 days after the drawing to claim the prize at Maryland Lottery headquarters at 1800 Washington Blvd. in Baltimore.

Nationally, more than 2.2 million tickets were winners. Maryland saw more than 67,700 players win prizes ranging from the $1 million second-tier win down to $1. The 4,904 Marylanders who paid the extra $1 to add Megaplier to the ticket saw the prize increase by five.

No one won the Mega Millions jackpot, which rolled to $216 million for the Friday drawing with a cash option of $119.6 million. The jackpot has rolled 15 times since Jan. 7. Watch Mega Millions drawings at 11:22 p.m. Tuesdays and Fridays on WBAL-TV, Channel 11.

Old Favorite Delivers New Cash to Baltimore Woman

February 25th, 2014

Wins $50,000 Playing Maryland Lottery’s Monopoly Scratch-off Game

MonopolyAfter spending the workday planning meals for residents of a nursing home, C. Evans of Baltimore likes to pick up a few Maryland Lottery scratch-offs on the way home. She did just that recently and selected a Monopoly scratch-off for part of her evening’s entertainment.

“I really like the Monopoly ticket, it’s been good to me in the past,” said the 49-year-old mother of three. She became confused, however, when she first scratched off what turned out to be a $50,000 winning ticket.

“I know the game pretty well,” she said. “Looking at the ticket, it appeared that I had won $50,000. I knew that couldn’t be right!”

The lucky winner walked from room to room in her home, studying the $5 Monopoly ticket and reading the game rules. “I eventually realized that it was real, that I had actually won $50,000.”

Lottery luck found our winner at the Bmore Tobacco Store at 1005 East Lombard Street in Baltimore. She plans to pay several bills, share her prize with family members and buy a new car with her Monopoly winnings.

The game launched Jan. 27 and has four $50,000 top-prize winning tickets still in stores. In addition to winning up to $50,000 instantly, players can enter their non-winning Monopoly tickets through My Lottery Rewards into second-chance drawings for $50,000. They can also select their favorite Monopoly game token on the Maryland Lottery’s Facebook page to enter a drawing to win $300 in new Monopoly scratch-offs. Visit mdlottery.com/monopoly for details.

Giving Grandma Plans to Share Lottery Prize with Charities

February 25th, 2014

Wins $50,000 Playing Maryland Lottery Hit the Jackpot Scratch-off

Hit The JackpotA grateful Baltimore grandmother who believes “you should never take more than you need” plans to share her $50,000 Maryland Lottery scratch-off win with family and charities. She won the second-tier prize on the Hit the Jackpot scratch-off.

The 62-year-old selected two of the $20 scratch-offs because she liked their appearance. After discovering they were not winning tickets, she decided to buy one more. The retired Royal Farms employee couldn’t believe her eyes when she scratched it off and matched five of the six jackpot numbers! Thinking the ticket was a $10,000 winner, she put on her reading glasses for a second look. Every number she matched was worth $10,000!

“That’s when I saw it was $50,000,” said the lucky player. She shared her good news with her daughter, who reacted with shock and surprise.

The lucky winner is very involved in local charities and already donates to homeless shelters, women’s shelters, the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals and several other organizations. She believes that what goes around comes back around.

“I always pay it forward, so I will continue to give to these charities,” said the happy Lottery player. In addition, she plans to share the winnings with her daughter and new granddaughter. She found her Lottery luck at Mini Stop located at 2413 Sparrows Point Road in Baltimore.
