Charles County man claims game’s $50,000 top prize
A Waldorf retiree having coffee with his friends at their local gathering place sweetened his day by adding fun and games to his beverage purchase. The 69-year-old bought four Maryland Lottery Family Feud scratch-offs and won $50,000!
“I usually do not play scratch offs,” said the lucky winner. “I am a Pick 3 and Pick 4 kind of guy.” He plays his regular numbers daily and plays random numbers when the mood hits him. On his lucky morning, the Charles County resident won $5 on the first instant ticket and the top prize of $50,000 on the second one!
“I really never thought I could win $50,000 on a scratch-off!” said the happy winner. “I will enjoy being retired with this extra cash on hand.”
He always purchases his Pick 3 and Pick 4 tickets from the same retailer, Charles Station located at 3030 St. Charles Parkway in Waldorf. The Charles County Lottery retailer wins, too, for selling a winning top-prize scratch-off in the $5 game. Charles Station earns a $500 bonus from the Lottery.
The Family Feud game, which launched in April 2017, still has two $50,000 top prizes remaining and thousands of other prizes ranging from $5 to $5,000.
