Owings Mills resident Anderson Felix can’t stop
Wins $50,000 Top Prize; Two Top-prizes remain
Anderson Felix is a regular scratch-off player. He and his co-worker purchase tickets breaks from cleaning carpets at Baltimore-area hotels. But the Owings Mills carpet cleaner really cleaned-up during a recent work break, scratching off one of the three remaining MONOPOLY™ scratch-off $50,000 top prizes.
Felix began scratching the ticket in the parking lot outside the store. As he slid into the driver’s seat of his work van he revealed a train emblem in the game play area of his ticket. He knew he had won, but it took some time for him to realize that he had won a $50,000 top prize. When he discovered the size of his windfall, he was in disbelief.
Felix, who emigrated from Brazil 30 years ago, says he plans to use the prize winnings to benefit his family. “I have two children and I want to plan for their future,” said Felix. He also plans to use a portion of the prize to celebrate. Felix plans to feed his ‘futbol’ fever, by traveling to Rio for the 2014 World Cup. “It’s something I’ve always wanted to do,” he said. The winning ticket was purchased at Mall Spirits on Reisterstown Road in Baltimore.
