Post Earthquake Ticket Shakes Things Up For Catonsville Man

Wins $1,000,000 Top Prize on Extreme Cash Blast

On a day full of fear and uncertainty due to the East Coast earthquake, happiness showered over a Catonsville man. After thinking a loud remodeling project was taking place at work, the annoyed federal employee was advised to evacuate due the state’s strongest earthquake in several decades.  The man decided to make good use of his idle time and scratched a few scratch-off tickets he had recently purchased.

“I thought to myself, it was a great time to scratch off some of my Lottery tickets,” the lucky winner said. After an unsettling experience at work, he was shocked to see that he was $1 million dollars richer.  He and his wife were ecstatic:  “He had been certain he’d win for the past 6 months!” said his wife.

Winning is not completely foreign to the avid player, who previously won $10,000 playing Mega Millions. He said he hopes that top prizes from both Mega Millions and Powerball are in his future. With his winnings, the happy winner plans to take a vacation with his wife, pay bills put the rest of it in the bank.

The winning ticket was purchased at 40 West Citgo, located on 8300 Baltimore National Pike in Ellicott City.
