Grandpa Fills Tank and Then Bank After Scratch-off Purchase

Claims $100,000 top prize on Win It All scratch-off

219-Win-It-All-ITVM_P1-goldA random stop to fuel up at the Merritt Shell in Dundalk filled up far more than the vehicle’s gas tank. The 68-year-old driver, who added two Win It All scratch-offs to his gas purchase, also filled up his bank account with the game’s $100,000 top prize.

“I was in shock. I looked at the ticket three or four times before believing it,” the lucky winner said. The Baltimore man plays Lottery games several times a week and prefers $10 instant tickets and Bonus Match 5 games. He plays Mega Millions and Powerball when the jackpots are high. Most of his luck, including several $10,000 wins, comes from scratch-offs.

Although extremely excited about this big prize, the loyal player hasn’t shared the great news with anyone. The grandfather of three plans to financially help out a few family members with his winnings and make the holidays special for his family and friends.

Be sure to stop in at your local Lottery retailer to purchase the Win It All scratch-offs. There are still two $100,000 top prizes remaining as well as three $10,000 winning tickets and 22 $1,000 tickets. For selling the top-prize winning scratch-off, Merritt Shell located at 1521 Merritt Boulevard will receive a $1,000 bonus from the Lottery.
