Claims Green Bucks $100,000 Top Prize
Dorothy Rice woke up a few days before the New Year with a plan to take her great-grandchildren shopping. Money was a little tight before Christmas, so she had waited for the post-holiday sales. “After some shopping, I realized that I had to play my Lottery numbers and pick up a couple of scratch-offs,” Dorothy said.
As Dorothy stood there for a few moments looking at the scratch-off tickets from which to choose, she noticed the new Green Bucks ticket. She decided to purchase one and stayed in the store to scratch it. She saw a $100,000 win on the first line. She continued to scratch, while shaking and screaming. Once the ticket was confirmed as a top-prize winner, she ran out of the store, crying and thanking God. The 62-year-old retired state worker went directly to her son’s house to share the good news.
Besides sharing her winnings with her family, Dorothy has no other plans for her windfall. The winning ticket was purchased at the Bottle & Cork, located at 6867 Loch Raven Blvd. in Baltimore.
