‘Mr. Lucky’ Trots to Big Racetrax Finish Mere Months after $1 Million Win

Three months and two days after collecting the $1 million top prize in the $1,000,000 Blowout game, “Mr. Lucky” of Silver Spring was back at Maryland Lottery headquarters in Baltimore picking up a $31,311 Racetrax reckoning.

The 38-year-old player cashed in his $1 million ticket on Aug. 27 and returned on Nov. 29 to cash in the lucky Racetrax ticket. His good fortune returned when he placed a Trifecta bet on the high-odds horse combination of 11, 12 and 10. “Mr. Lucky” added the multiplier bonus for three games in a row.

His $6 wager at the Hyattsville Convenience Store, 2230 University Boulevard East in Hyattsville, delivered the $31,311 prize. The store shares in the player’s luck and earns a bonus of $313.11, equal to 1 percent of the prize, for selling a winning Racetrax ticket with a prize of $10,000 or more.

“Mr. Lucky’s” $1 million win was on a ticket purchased at Sunshine Ethio, 6907 New Hampshire Avenue in Takoma Park.
