Tax-free Win Gives Scratch-off Player More Moola for BillsFriday, August 9th, 2013
Wins $50,000 with Tax Free $50,000 scratch-off
Hoping to win big playing Maryland Lottery scratch-offs but not sure which one to play, a Cockeysville man wa
s checking out a display at a local retailer when he spotted the Tax Free $50,000 scratch-off. He really liked the idea of winning $50,000 with taxes already paid on the winnings.
Day after day, the avid scratch-off player returned to his favorite retailer to play that specific ticket. At first the man had very little luck playing the ticket, but good fortune eventually came his way. The 29-year-old visited the store on a Saturday with the intent to win. “I tried to leave, but I couldn’t. Something made me keep playing.”
Could that something be Lady Luck? When he scratched off the $50,000 winning ticket in the store, the lucky winner immediately showed the ticket to the store owner to share his happiness.
“I was so excited I couldn’t sleep Saturday night,” he said. “All night, I couldn’t sleep.”
The Baltimore County man hid the ticket at home and went to work as if nothing had happened. He has told no one of his win, other than the clerk, and plans to keep his win top secret. His winnings will go to pay his credit card bills and other debts.
There are still three more top prize Tax Free $50,000 scratch-offs waiting for some lucky person to find them in Maryland stores. Our excited winner bought his ticket at the Hunt Valley Shell at 11201 York Road in Cockeysville.
