Carryout Plus Scratch-Off Purchases Create Winning Combination

Joseph Holonich of Olney won a $10,000 prize on the 100X The Cash scratch-off!

Olney man becomes two-time winner of $10,000

An Olney man who purchased a trio of Maryland Lottery scratch-offs to enjoy with his delicious carryout meal discovered an unexpected sweet treat – a $10,000 prize!

Joseph Holonich stopped at Ashton Beer & Wine in Ashton to purchase three 100X The Cash scratch-offs before picking up his carryout order. Buying instant tickets is somewhat of a regular routine for the Montgomery County resident.

“I always have my backup team check my tickets, which is why I always scratch them at home,” said the 58-year-old. His backup team consists of his wife and his mother-in-law. “This is the second time I have won $10,000 playing Maryland Lottery scratch-offs,” he said. “It was about this time last year I was here collecting my winnings.”

The nuclear engineer has already made plans for his prize. The happy scratch-off player will use his winnings toward the cost of a home renovation to install a new bathroom.
