Lucky parents win $10,000 on 8-spot bet
A lucky Keno player has her husband to thank for winning $10,000 that will help the family of four afford the down payment on a new home.
The 38-year-old sent her husband to Soda Pop Shop #8 in Baltimore to purchase Keno tickets and he brought back a winner! Their 8-spot bet on numbers 5, 15, 25, 35, 45, 55, 65 and 75 delivered the big prize. The lucky couple checked that $2 ticket together and realized Lottery luck had come their way.
“I am ready to go and get the prize,” the Baltimore resident told her husband of 10 years. Two weeks later, they arrived at Maryland Lottery headquarters and enjoyed their trip to the Winner’s Circle.
The lucky couple has owned an area liquor store for seven years. They plan to use their prize to help move their family to a home. Their second child recently arrived and the happy parents plan to spend some of the winnings on their children, too.
Their Lottery retailer also shares in their win. Soda Pop Shop #8 located at 1026 Ingleside Avenue in Baltimore will also receive a $100 bonus from the Lottery for selling a winning Keno ticket of $10,000 or more.
