Lottery Winnings Run in the Family of Temple Hills Woman

This lucky U.S. Postal Service clerk is a big winner, just like her scratch-off playing dad.

She won $50,000 FAST PLAY prize, Dad won $100,000 in 2015

Dasier Davis of Temple Hills is following in her dad’s footsteps as a big Lottery winner. She just claimed a $50,000 prize in the FAST PLAY Lucky Numbers game, about seven years after her father won $100,000 on a scratch-off.

The Prince George’s County resident, who said she is not a superstitious player, said that an itch on her hand helped her decided it was time to buy a scratch-off. Discovering that the scratch-offs she hoped to buy were sold out at her local Lottery retailer, Dasier decided to give FAST PLAY games a try. The 31-year-old selected the $10 Lucky Numbers progressive top-prize game and handed her ticket to a store clerk to check for a win. The lucky daughter was shocked by his response.

“He started to give me a hug and told me that I had won $50,000,” she said. “I couldn’t believe it. I was very excited.”

The U.S. Postal Service clerk said she is an occasional scratch-off player. Her father Michael Lawrence’s trip to the Winner’s Circle came in July 2015 when he won a $100,000 scratch-off prize.

Some of her windfall will go toward starting a savings account for her godson. She plans to give some funds to her church and then share the rest of the prize with others. “I might help my mom pay off her car,” Dasier said. “I like to help my family.”

She bought her lucky FAST PLAY ticket at 7-Eleven #35513 located at 5815 Greenbelt Road in Berwyn Heights. The Lucky Numbers ticket went on sale on Feb. 20, 2020 and will close when a player buys the next progressive top-prize winning ticket. The prize rose to $135,879 around midday on Sept. 26 and was growing with each ticket sale.
