Mt. Airy Mom Joins Field of Winners at Winfield Liquors

Finds $50,000 prize on Instant Millionaire scratch-off

192-Instant-Millionaire-ITVM_P4-greenIf you’re shopping at Winfield Liquors in Westminster, keep an eye out for Lady Luck! One of her frequent visits to this Maryland Lottery retailer put a huge smile on the face of the lucky Mt. Airy woman who made a timely scratch-off purchase.

The 80-year-old stopped in the Carroll County store located at 1707 West Liberty Road while running errands. She purchased three Instant Millionaire scratch-offs and put them in her purse to enjoy playing later. Several days later, the well drilling company owner remembered the $20 scratch-offs and discovered one of them carried a $50,000 prize.

“I was just so surprised,” said the shocked winner. “I couldn’t believe it.” The mother of five shared the news with her husband and the happy pair came to Lottery headquarters in Baltimore to claim her prize.

When she made her purchase, the lucky player had spotted a banner already hanging in the store publicizing a big Lottery win. That’s because two other significant Lottery winning tickets were purchased at this Lottery hotspot! In September, a $50,000 Hit it Big winning ticket was bought there and, in October, a $20,000 winning Neon X20 scratch-off was purchased at that same location.

The current winner of the $50,000 Instant Millionaire scratch-off prize said she is sure glad that she buys her tickets from that “winning” retailer. She plans to help her husband fund an operation with her prize and will give gifts to her adult children to help with their Christmas shopping.
