Glen Burnie Angler Hooks $30,000 Lottery Win

Takes home top prize on Rack up the Cash scratch-off

Rack up the CashWhat a catch! A Glen Burnie fisherman has hooked the top prize of $30,000 on a Rack up the Cash scratch-off after casting a wide net to catch a winner.

A loyal Maryland Lottery player for 40 years, the longtime Marylander enjoys jackpot games, 5 Card Cash and scratch-offs, especially those with a crossword theme. “I’ve won $500 about 15 to 20 times over the years,” he said, but this prize is truly a whopper! “I just couldn’t break the $500 prize threshold.”

Now that his luck has changed, the angler is hoping to land a new job, next. The 58-year-old is currently unemployed after a 19-year career in the automobile industry. On the day good fortune found him, the man entered one of his favorite Lottery retailers and bought a selection of scratch-offs based on tickets that caught his eye. He typically buys a selection of scratch-offs under the $10 ticket price, making the $3 Rack up the Cash ticket priced just right. “I like the extended play scratch-offs the best,” he said, and that scratch-off fit his requirement, too.

When our winner arrived home, he began scratching off his purchases and discovered he’d reeled in a winner with his Rack up the Cash scratch-off. He plans to spend his winnings on bills. To visit his lucky retailer, head to Ocean Wine & Spirits at 7703 Baltimore-Annapolis Boulevard in Glen Burnie.
