Federalsburg resident wins big playing Double Play

Double-Play_AnimatedThis morning, an ecstatic winner came into Lottery Headquarters to claim her $50,000 Double Play prize. The woman, who is a regular scratch-off player, chose to try the Double Play ticket for the first time and was pleased when the ticket hit a grand slam. “I wasn’t sure if I read the ticket correctly. I was in such disbelief,” she said with an anxious smile. Adding even more excitement to the win was the fact that it came on the woman’s 80th birthday. “I felt very lucky. After winning the $50,000, I won another $102 from scratch-offs that were birthday gifts!” exclaimed the fortunate winner.

Originally from France, she hopes to use some of her prize money  to return to her native country to visit family.  She also plans to send some money to her siblings that still reside there. But, she is most excited about buying her beloved cat some new toys and “mice to play with.” The winning ticket was purchased at Wetcher Whistle, located at 305 Bloomingdale Ave. in Federalsburg (Caroline County).

    Very nice birthday present! But I sure hope I don’t have to wait to get much older to win, I will never see 80, and I would like to enjoy my money while I can. I truly think it is never going to happen for me.
