Glen Burnie Man Smiles like Christmas Morning after March Win on Holiday Scratch-off

Peppermint Payout! instant ticket delivers $30,000 prize

A big win on a late purchase of the holiday-themed Peppermint Payout! Scratch-Off brought a Christmas-in-March smile to the face of a Glen Burnie player.

Collecting his prize on March 22, the 53-year-old player said he planned to invest his $30,000 windfall and would celebrate by enjoying a cerveza. He also plans to continue playing Maryland Lottery games, which he enjoys because of the excitement of not knowing if a ticket is a winner. He has won amounts in the $500 to $1,000 range in the past.

The Anne Arundel County resident bought the Peppermint Payout! instant ticket earlier in March mainly because it was a $3 game. He generally plays $3 and $5 scratch-offs, “$10 sometimes,” as well as Powerball. Congratulations!
