Jesse Broadwater, Sr. had a good deal of Maryland Lottery luck last week as he scratched his way to $500 and $10,000 scratch-off wins. Those two prizes paled in comparison to his first brush with good fortune, a $100,000 Diamonds scratch-off win.
“I took a few Diamonds scratch-off tickets to work with me to play on my break,” said the 58-year-old, who works the late shift at a local paper mill. “When I scratched the winner I saw the $100,000 prize right away, but couldn’t believe it.”
Even more unbelievable, Jesse’s luck continued when he won two more large prizes. Only two days later, he scored $10,000 on a Cash Blast scratch-off and $500 on another game. “When I called my son after the $10,000 ticket he refused to believe me,” Jesse said.
This lucky winner knows exactly what he will be doing with his Lottery winnings. “Retirement’s only a few years away for me – this will make it a much happier time,” Jesse told Lottery officials. Jesse purchased his $100,000 winner from Powell’s Grocery at 15915 Lower George’s Creek Road in Lonaconing and his $10,000 Cash Blast ticket from the Sheetz store at 10601 New George’s Creek Road in Frostburg.
