Reisterstown man takes home $20,000 prize
A 63-year-old Reisterstown man is a happy Lottery player after winning big on his favorite game last weekend. He was visiting the owner of a Citgo service station in Baltimore City when he decided to play four games of Keno. The loyal player was sure glad that he did, because he walked out $20,000 richer!
The engineer played a 7-spot ticket for four consecutive draws. He selected 4, 9, 12, 18, 19, 25 and 52 and sat back to watch the games unfold. His eyes grew big when, in his fourth game, he saw some familiar numbers.
“It was very exciting,” said the winner, “but it was not my first time winning big.” The Baltimore County resident shared that, years ago, he won $500,000 on a scratch-off.
This time, after realizing he won $20,000, the lucky man tucked his ticket in his wallet and quietly slid out the door of the Lottery retailer. He headed home to share news of his Lottery luck with his wife. “We can finish paying on our trip,” said his wife. “She always says I’m very lucky,” added the winner.
When claiming the prize at Lottery headquarters, the winner said he plans to use his prize to pay bills.
Also claiming a prize is the Citgo located at 7101 Reisterstown Road. The Lottery retailer earns a $200 bonus from the Lottery for selling a winning Keno ticket of $10,000 or more. The bonus is equal to 1 percent of the prize.
