Millersville residents take home Jackpot! scratch-off top prize
Although gold is traditionally paired with 50th wedding anniversaries, a Millersville woman isn’t complaining that her gift came early in the form of paper. The 73-year-old and her husband will celebrate their anniversary with $100,000 in extra cash in their pockets, thanks to an impulsive Maryland Lottery scratch-off purchase.
“I never buy scratch-off tickets, but decided to try one the other day while I was in the store,” the Anne Arundel County resident said, referring to her visit to Lottery retailer Sunflower Shell in Pasadena.
Her $10 purchase was a wise impulse buy! After she scratched the Jackpot ticket at home and revealed the $100,000 win, she sat in disbelief. Our winner plans to save her prize for now. Her granddaughter, who accompanied the couple to Lottery headquarters, said she hopes her grandmother will at least treat the couple to a nice anniversary dinner!
For selling the top-prize ticket in the Jackpot game, Sunflower Shell located at 8078 Ritchie Highway in Pasadena will receive a $1,000 bonus from the Lottery.
