Finding a $10,000-winning Bonus 7-11-21 scratch-off had Brady of Allegany County shaking in his boots!

Little Orleans retailer sells big winner in Bonus 7-11-21 game

Working outdoors all day during Western Maryland winters could have some folks shaking in their boots. But not “Brady” of Allegany County. It took a $10,000-winning Maryland Lottery scratch-off to do that to this hardy outdoorsman!

“I was shaking pretty badly,” said the 18-year-old, who was with a friend at BP Price Quality Fuel in Little Orleans when he decided to splurge on a few scratch-offs. They were waiting for his friend’s food when he picked out the games, including a $2 Bonus 7-11-21 scratch-off.

“I hadn’t played in about three months,” Brady said. “We were in the parking lot and we went to the car and I scratched one and said, ‘No, it’s a dud,’ and then I scratched the second one.”

His friend, who accompanied the winner and his dad to Lottery headquarters in Baltimore, took over the tale.

“He said, ‘What’s 4 plus 4 plus 3’ and I said, ’11,’ and he said, ‘I won $10,000!’ and I said, ‘No way!’”

Sure enough, the prize for adding three numbers in a game block was $10,000 if the numbers added up to 7, 11 or 21.

The happy trio celebrated with a photo in the Lottery Winner’s Circle room before heading back to Western Maryland. Brady plans to spend his prize on college expenses and car repairs.

The Bonus 7-11-21 game, which went on sale Dec. 27, still has plenty of unclaimed prizes including four more $10,000 top prizes and thousands of others ranging from $2 to $1,000. Want to try your Lottery luck at Brady’s retailer? Visit the Little Orleans business at 35206 National Pike.
