Who doesn’t need extra cash around the holidays? “Early Christmas” won $12,500 playing Keno with some of her lucky numbers.

Lucky mother wins $12,500  

A Worcester County mom has extra pep in her step after winning $12,500 playing Keno using her lucky numbers.

After purchasing her Keno ticket at Shop Kwik in Berlin, the player – who dubbed herself “Early Christmas” – stayed to watch the game. Her numbers appeared on the screen one by one. The instant the 24-year-old realized Lottery luck had arrived, she yelled, “Heck yeah, I just won!”

The Eastern Shore resident was thankful she listened to her cousins’ advice and added the Bonus multiplier feature to her game. The 5x multiplier boosted her win to the $12,500 mark.

“Early Christmas” was met with disbelief when she called her mom to let her know about her big win. Her mom’s response was, “Stop playing with me!” The winner, who lives near Berlin, reassured her mother that she truly had reason to celebrate!

The winner plans to spend her prize on her new house and on extra holiday gifts for her daughter.

Also with reason to celebrate is the lucky Lottery retailer that sold her the winning ticket. Shop Kwik located at 10140 Old Ocean City Boulevard in Berlin earns a $125 bonus from the Lottery for selling a winning Keno ticket of $10,000 or more. The bonus is equal to 1 percent of the prize.
