Baltimore Cook Stirs Up Big Pot of Lottery Luck

Claims $50,000 prize on $15,000,000 Cash Payout! scratch-off

The intuition that drove a Baltimore man to visit a random Maryland Lottery retailer to purchase a random scratch-off didn’t let him down. The cook combined all the right ingredients, including his selection of the $15,000,000 Cash Payout! game, to dish up a tasty $50,000 top-prize win.

The 45-year-old found his Lottery luck at 7-Eleven #39148 located at 2701 North Rolling Road in Windsor Mill. He purchased six scratch-offs on his lucky day.

“I couldn’t believe it,” he said. “I was happy and surprised.” The winner plays other Lottery games, too, but this is by far his largest win on any game.

He kept news of his prize quiet, with the exception of a few close friends. The player has worked as a cook for 20 years and as a truck driver for seven years. When asked what he plans to do with his winnings, the player plans to go home to Honduras for the summer.

7-Eleven will also share a small piece of the prize. The Baltimore County store earns a bonus of $500 from the Lottery for selling a $50,000 top-prize winning scratch-off. There are still lots of prizes remaining on this ticket, including four top-prize winners and several smaller prizes.

This $5 game is a member of the Cash Payout! family of instant games. Brighten up your wallet with the $1 $3,000,000 Cash Payout!, $2 $4,000,000 Cash Payout! and $10 $20,000,000 Cash Payout! scratch-offs.
