$50,000 Scratch-Off Win for Easton Man
Richard Webb became the Lottery’s latest instant winner today when he visited the claim center with a Nutcracker Cash Doubler scratch-off ticket worth $50,000. With all that’s going on in his life right now, the timing of the win could not have been more opportune.
The Easton electrician was on his way home after work when he stopped by a nearby store to play a few scratch-offs. He chose his tickets, he scratched his tickets and when he realized what he was seeing he pocketed his tickets and immediately called his wife. “She didn’t believe me at first,” Richard told officials, “I didn’t want to get her too excited because she’s very, very pregnant.” With one daughter at home and another about to join the family, the instant win will be an instant help around the house.
Richard’s winning ticket was purchased at Odenton Liquors on Annapolis Road in Odenton.
