Baltimore Cook Rolling in the Dough after $20,000 Lottery Win

Sheila Bloodsworth of Nottingham and her friends celebrate her $20,000 scratch-off win.

Finds her fortune playing a $1,000 Frenzy scratch-off

Sheila Bloodsworth, a 48-year-old cook from Nottingham, is rolling in the dough after winning a $20,000 prize playing a $1,000 Frenzy scratch-off.

The culinary breakfast specialist found her lucky instant ticket when she stopped by Nottingham Shell at 7533 Belair Road in Baltimore to get gas and buy $1,000 Frenzy scratch-offs. The $10 game is her favorite Maryland Lottery instant ticket.

After reaching home with three scratch-offs in hand, Sheila tried her luck.

“I noticed that the first two Frenzy tickets I had gotten weren’t winners,” she said. “As I began to scratch my third and final one, I got the shock of my life. The ticket was saying I won $20,000! I was just so amazed.”

Sheila said she immediately called her family to tell them the good news. She feels blessed about her win and plans to take a few family member and friends out to dinner. The rest of her prize will go toward bills and into savings, she said.

The $1,000 Frenzy instant scratch-off ticket came out in May. The popular scratch-off has five $100,000 top prizes, seven $20,000 and 14 $10,000 prizes available. The game is a member of the Frenzy family of scratch-offs. Get caught in the frenzy and check out the $1 $50 Frenzy, $2 $100 Frenzy and $5 $500 Frenzy instant tickets!
