Crabcakes, $10,000 prize make event memorable
A Prince Frederick couple celebrated a family birthday in grand style after ripping the wrapping off a lucky scratch-off to turn the Diamond 7s instant ticket into a $10,000 prize. The celebration began when the 31-year-old woman, a product coordinator for a local apparel company, scratched the ticket while preparing a special birthday meal.
Her boyfriend bought the lucky scratch-off on the date they planned to celebrate his birthday. The 27-year-old HVAC specialist had cashed some winning scratch-offs at 7-Eleven #25399 in Prince Frederick. While at the store, which is located at 14 Solomons Island Road, he reinvested his prizes into several Diamond 7s instant tickets. He scratched a few of the $10 instant tickets and took one home for his girlfriend to enjoy.
As the birthday crabcakes sizzled, and with her boyfriend watching over her shoulder, the lucky winner scratched off the ticket. She wasn’t scratching too long before her boyfriend erupted in excitement. She had revealed a winning ‘7’ symbol with a prize amount of $10,000 beneath!
Because they have a growing family, the couple said they have many ways to use the prize. They will probably apply the winnings toward a new vehicle.
There are still three $100,000 top prizes remaining on the Diamond 7s game, along with four more $10,000 prizes and more than 100,000 other prizes ranging from $10 to $500.
