Laurel resident claims $50,000 top prize on Fat Wallet instant ticket
While leaving work one morning, a man from Laurel visited a local grocery store to buy a few cases of water. Afterward, he made his usual stop at a local Lottery retailer to play some games. There was absolutely nothing usual, however, about the $50,000 prize that he won!
The lucky player visited Tony’s Liquors located at 12637 Laurel Bowie Road in Laurel. He bought two $5 Fat Wallet instant tickets after playing his regular Lottery games. When he, scratched them off in the store, the player received the shock of a lifetime.
“I was in such disbelief, I had to check my ticket several times,” the happy player recalled.
He has since shared the news of his good fortune with his family. He hasn’t made any solid plans yet for his winnings other than spending it while with his family.
Tony’s Liquors can also celebrate. The Prince George’s County business receives a $500 bonus from the Lottery for its role in selling a $50,000 top-prize winning scratch-off. The Fat Wallet game went on sale in March with eight $50,000 top prizes. There are still three remaining, along with five $5,000 second-tier prizes.
