A Silver Spring woman is thanking heaven she and her spouse stopped at their local 7-Eleven to buy Pay Me scratch-offs. They found a $50,000 winner!
The lucky married couple decided they were in a scratch-off playing mood after leaving a friend’s house. They made a quick stop at 7-Eleven #34366 located at 11406 Georgia Avenue in Silver Spring to buy instant tickets before going home. After not winning on the first scratch-off, the lucky lady hoped for better luck – and got it! The second Pay Me instant ticket made the couple $50,000 richer.
“I remember my wife running out of the 7-Eleven to our truck, saying that she thought we won the big one,” said the spouse. “This prize money certainly comes at a very good time for us. It adds that security that we’ve been working hard for and need.”
The excited pair said they would like to spend some of the prize on a family getaway to Florida with their children. Also celebrating their win is the lucky retailer. The Montgomery County 7-Eleven will receive a $500 bonus from the Maryland Lottery for selling a top-prize scratch-off in the $5 game.
This game still has plenty of prizes remaining, including three more $50,000 top prizes and thousands of other prizes ranging from $5 to $5,000.
