Following Wife’s Advice Leads to $100,000 Win for Glen Burnie Man

Claims top prize on FAST PLAY Mega Multiplier ticket

Although his wife is overseas for work, the two talk every day, an Anne Arundel County man told Lottery officials. He was sharing the story of how a $100,000 top-prize winning FAST PLAY Mega Multiplier ticket entered his life last week. It turns out that one of the couple’s daily conversations had a lot to do with it.

The restaurant employee is an occasional Lottery player, buying Powerball or Mega Millions tickets whenever their jackpots caught his attention. He’s enjoyed two or three $500 wins over the years and was very excited each time. “I thought I was pretty lucky, I never really expected to win more than that.”

Last week, his wife shared with him a memorable dream she’d experienced the night before.  “She told me that she’d seen us winning a lot of money and that it was from the Lottery.” Asked to go get a ticket right away, the Glen Burnie man drove to 7-Eleven #26152 to comply with her request.

“It wasn’t a Powerball or Mega Millions night, those are the games I first thought to play,” the husband said. “But then, I saw the Mega Multiplier ticket.”

Mega Multiplier, a $10 FAST PLAY ticket, debuted in April last year with 30 $100,000 top prizes. The lucky waiter found the fourth top prize in the game. Along with the 26 remaining $100,000 winners, there are 14 $50,000 second-tier prizes in circulation, 25 $20,000 prizes and 25 $10,000 prizes.

“My legs started shaking when I saw the matching numbers and realized how much I’d won,” the happy man said. “I thought about keeping it from my wife until she returns next week, but I couldn’t. Our phone call that night was a very happy one.”

His lucky Lottery retailer, 7-Eleven #26152, is located at 8930 Fort Smallwood Road in Pasadena. Ownership there received a $1,000 bonus from the Lottery for selling the Mega Multiplier $100,000 top-prize winning ticket.
