Glen Burnie Man wins $50,000 Prize

Player's ClubThe Glen Burnie man was hesitant at first about buying another Player’s Club scratch-off on Friday evening. He soon discovered that his $20 was well-spent, when he scratched his way to a $50,000 prize. His first luck of the evening was on another scratch-off, which yielded a $10 win. “I knew then that my luck may have changed for the best,” he said with confidence.

“I saw the $50,000 Player’s Club ticket and didn’t believe it,” said the 38-year-old. “I thought it was a misprint or something.”  His wife was also skeptical about their windfall. “When I told her that I’d won, she thought I was playing a joke on her.” He had to take the winning ticket to her job and show it to her before she would believe their good fortune. “She was happy when she saw the winning ticket,” he exclaimed.

The ticket was kept in a drawer in the house for safe keeping until he arrived at Lottery Headquarters this morning. “I checked that drawer every night,” said the winner. “I told my wife when I got up this morning, ‘I’m going to Washington Boulevard.’”

The lucky winner plans to buy a car for his 18-year-old son to help him get back and forth to school and work. He will also pay bills and save some of his prize money. The winning ticket was purchased at McKinsey Road Shell, located at 601 Ritchie Hwy. in Glen Burnie.
