Following ‘Gut Feeling’ Gives Gal a $50,000 Scratch-off Win

Claims top prize on Lucky Numbers instant ticket

The weekend was just around the corner when a Baltimore scratch-off fan decided to follow her “gut” feeling that Lottery luck was coming her way.

The future $50,000 top-prize winner was driving through the city and spotted Save More at 4200 Wabash Avenue. She stopped in, planning to purchase one of the $5 $100,000 Jackpot scratch-offs, only to hear from the store clerk that the game was sold out. The employee suggested the loyal player try the $5 Lucky Numbers scratch-off, instead, so she did.

While sitting in her car, the winner scratched off the instant ticket and immediately felt simultaneous relief and excitement. The 37-year-old won the game’s first top prize of $50,000! The happy player returned to the store to verify her win and then went on her way. She has no immediate plans for her prize but will save her winnings for future endeavors.

For selling a top-prize winning scratch-off, Save More in Baltimore earns a $500 bonus from the Lottery. The bonus is equal to 1 percent of the prize. Congrats to both winners!

The Lucky Numbers scratch-off went on sale in April and is still loaded with unclaimed prizes. Players can search for seven more $50,000 top prizes, 11 $5,000 prizes and hundreds of thousands of other prizes ranging from $5 to $1,000.
