Baltimore Bakery Worker Savors Sweet Lottery Win

Claims $10,000 prize on bingo scratch-off

218-Bingo-Multiplier-ITVM_P1-greenHow sweet it is! A Baltimore man who works in an area bakery is still savoring his sweet treat on a Maryland Lottery Bingo Multiplier scratch-off – a $10,000 prize!

The 67-year-old found his surprise when he stopped by New City Mart just down the boulevard from Lottery headquarters. He purchased several scratch-offs, left the store and took the instant tickets home to scratch. He had no idea he was holding a $10,000 winner!

The avid Lottery player, who prefers extended-play scratch-offs like the Bingo Multiplier ticket, couldn’t believe what he was seeing after he first revealed his win! He just kept looking at the ticket. Once he confirmed that the $5 scratch-off was a $10,000 winner, he told his wife and she joined him in a celebration.

The loyal Lottery player was heading directly to the bank after claiming his prize at Lottery headquarters. While he plans to keep his win a secret, he said he will likely share some of the prize with his adult children.

The Lottery retailer that sold the winning ticket, New City Mart, is located at 1184 Washington Boulevard in Baltimore. Try your luck with the Bingo Multiplier game, which still has lots of unclaimed prizes including six $50,000 winners, 10 $10,000 prizes and another 10 $5,000 prizes.
