Claims 2nd of seven top prizes in $20 game
A red-hot scratch-off overflowing with $1 million in Lottery luck brought a St. Mary’s County man to Maryland Lottery headquarters last week.
The 62-year-old claimed the $1 million top prize in the Lucky 777 scratch-off, which still has five $1 million top prizes remaining. He found his lucky $20 instant ticket at St. Mary’s Gas Station located at 23950 Colton Point Road in Clements.
The St. Mary’s County business is an Expanded Cashing Authority Program retailer, which allows it to cash Lottery scratch-offs up to and including $5,000. The busy location offers customers a choice of 50 scratch-off facings. For selling the top-prize scratch-off in the game, St. Mary’s Gas Station earns a $1,000 bonus from the Lottery. This is its biggest winning scratch-off sale to date.
The Lucky 777 game is a member of the Lucky 7 family of games that went on sale May 18. Players can also play $1 Lucky 7s, $2 Lucky 7s Doubler, $5 Lucky 7s Tripler and $10 Lucky 7s Multiplier scratch-offs.
