Gift contains lucky lady’s winning instant ticket
As a Queen Anne’s County resident gathered with friends to celebrate another birthday and unwrap her gifts, the 31-year-old wasn’t sure what to expect. A $50,000 winning Maryland Lottery Ravens scratch-off wasn’t even on her radar!
The Queen Anne woman says she’s easy to shop for because the three things she loves are football, the Baltimore Ravens and scratch-offs. If a football game is on, everyone knows exactly where she’ll be. When she unwrapped each of her gifts, it was clear that her friends knew her well. Each parcel contained a few $5 Ravens scratch-offs.
Later that night, just before heading to bed, the birthday girl decided to scratch off an instant ticket. As she uncovered the $50,000 win, her hands began to shake. The winner and her husband rechecked the scratch-off several times and she excitedly woke her parents with the astounding news. “Things like this don’t happen to me,” she said.
As they checked the scratch-off a few more times, the reality of the win set in and her plans for the prize became clear. The lucky lady plans to pay a few bills and send her parents on a long-awaited international vacation.
The site of the lucky ticket’s sale was the Centreville Citgo located at 426 S. Commerce Street in Centreville.
