Chooses Double-Dollar Fortune Instant Ticket on a Whim
Add another Maryland Lottery win to the record of Whisker’s Bar & Grill in Berlin! A Worcester County woman just won $50,000 on a Double Dollar Fortune scratch-off she bought at the establishment, which is home to a $700,000 Multi-Match jackpot win in 2013 and numerous Racetrax wins.
The new winner, a 49-year-old scratch-off player, bought her $20 ticket at Whisker’s on a whim. She didn’t discover her good fortune until she scratched the ticket off at work.
“It was just dumb luck,” said the Berlin resident. “I scratched the spots off one at a time and, when I saw the first prize, I was ecstatic.” That $100 prize, however, was just the first one she uncovered! As she kept scratching off the ticket, the happy woman revealed multiple prizes from $50 to $5,000 that matched her winning numbers. The sight of her total win, $50,000, was overwhelming. “I felt like I was having an anxiety attack,” she said.
What will she do with her win? Struck by an entrepreneurial spirit, the lucky player plans to invest her unexpected windfall in a planned business venture.
Double Dollar Fortune scratch-offs carry a top prize of $1 million. Two $1 million prize-winning tickets are still undiscovered in Maryland stores along with three $50,000 winning tickets and 10 $10,000 winning tickets. Whisker’s is located at 11070 Cathell Road.
