Takes home $10,000 Diamond Spectacular scratch-off prize
Lottery luck can strike twice for the same winner at the same retailer! Three years ago, a lucky player claimed a $50,000 winning scratch-off that she purchased at Mini Stop in Baltimore. Fast forward to today – the same woman cashed a $10,000 ticket bought at the same store!
Her new prize comes from a $20 Diamond Spectacular scratch-off. The retiree was scratching the ticket in the Sparrows Point store when she realized she held a big winner. She scanned it and saw that the prize was so large she had to claim it at Lottery headquarters in Baltimore.
“I called my friend and said, ‘I did it again’,” the smiling 64-year-old told Lottery officials. “I then asked her if she wanted to come with me to cash it!”
The winner doesn’t have much of a plan yet for her winnings, but knows that she’ll make a trip to a casino to have some fun.
Her lucky retailer, Mini Stop, is located at 2413 Sparrows Point Road in Baltimore. The $20 Diamond Spectacular game has one $1 million top prize and one $50,000 prize remaining, along with thousands of other prizes between $20 and $10,000.
