Energy Drink Purchase Leads to Refreshing $10,000 Lottery Win

Million Dollar Spectacular scratch-off delivers prize

222-Million-Dollar-Spectacular-ITVMWhen a Baltimore man stopped at Padonia Liquors yesterday to purchase an energy drink, he never imagined he would leave the store $10,000 richer. The occasional Lottery player decided to try his luck with a $20 Million Dollar Spectacular ticket while he was at the register paying for his beverage.

“I enjoy the $20 tickets,” the lucky winner said. “I figure you have to go big or go home.”

He started scratching the instant ticket inside the store. Once he saw he won at least $1,500, he quickly left the store located at 51 E. Padonia Road in Timonium to finish scratching the instant ticket in his car. Every number on his ticket matched the winning numbers! The lucky player did the math and realized he was $10,000 richer.

The 29-year-old, who works in the mortgage business, has told only his father about the win. Prior to this prize, the most he ever won on a scratch-off was $500. The winner plans to use his prize to help his dad and to acquire more Under Armour stock.

The Million Dollar Spectacular game has two $1 million top prizes, three $50,000 prizes and many other prizes between $20 and $10,000 remaining.
