Berlin Woman Claims $700,000 Prize
Ruth Carpenter visited Lottery Headquarters today carrying a Multi-Match ticket good for $700,000. The long drive from Berlin – just outside of Ocean City – brought an end to the 36 hours of nervous excitement since realizing she’d won Monday night’s jackpot.
Ruth, who owns and operates a taxi service, told Lottery officials that she enjoys buying a lottery ticket or two with lunch several times a week to add some fun to her demanding work schedule.
When she saw Monday’s winning Multi-Match numbers, though, she wasn’t happy. “They looked like lousy numbers. Then I looked at my ticket.”
When asked if she’d be taking a vacation after her big win, she replied, “A vacation? I live at the beach.” Ruth’s lottery luck met up with her at Whisker’s Bar & Grill at 11070 Cathell Road in Berlin.
