Claims $50,000 Maryland Lottery prize
A Pennsylvania mother of three recently checked her Maryland Lottery Powerball tickets from the July 22 drawing, and much to her surprise, discovered she was holding onto a big winner.
“I just got around to checking my tickets,” the horse farm owner told Lottery officials, while claiming her $50,000 prize. “I wasn’t sure how much I won at first, but once I saw the amount, we kept checking the ticket over and over again.”
The Coatesville resident travels through Maryland frequently for horse shows. She decided to stop at Fairhill Liquors, located at 3135 Singerly Road in Elkton, to grab some Lottery tickets last month.
To win the $50,000 prize on her quick-pick ticket, the 50-year-old matched four white balls plus the Power Ball number. She was the only Marylander and one of 20 players nationwide to do so. With her prize, the excited winner plans to save for her kids’ college costs and possibly purchase a camper with friends.
The Powerball jackpot continues to grow. Tomorrow night’s drawing is worth an estimated $510 million. That’s the fifth largest Powerball jackpot in the history of the game.
