Retired Baltimore City Teacher On Road to Riches

Afternoon Drive Nets $50,000 Cash Spectacular Scratch-Off Win

Cash SpectacularA West Baltimore man and fan of Maryland Lottery instant games had a “Spectacular” start to the New Year. The retired city teacher stopped at a local gas station as he and his wife set-off for a drive.  While there, he decided to buy a Cash Spectacular scratch-off, a game he’d played before with happy results.  He handed the ticket to his wife and drove off.

“At some point in our trip my wife started playing the game,” he told officials.  “I heard her say ‘there’s a match’ once, then again and again, each time with a little more excitement.”  He wanted badly to look over but stayed disciplined – eyes on the road, hands at 10 o’clock and 2 o’clock.  “We finally reached our destination and I was able to get a close look.  I was stunned.”

The lucky gas station is the Woodmoor Shell station at 7001 Liberty Rd. in Baltimore.  The win will allow the couple to finally complete some home repairs that they’ve talked about for years.
