Player’s Roller-Coaster Ride Ends with Big Racetrax Win

Finds $58,530 prize on a Superfecta Box bet with the Bonus multiplier

A Howard County resident who arrived at Maryland Lottery headquarters to claim what he knew was a fairly large Racetrax prize got his second shock in 24 hours – he won $58,530!

“This is just bananas,” said the 49-year-old, as he joined Lottery staff in the Winner’s Circle.

What a difference a day makes! The previous night, the winner had endured a roller-coaster ride of wins and losses at a casino. His luck rebounded when he switched gears on his way home, stopping at Ellicott City Exxon to play the Maryland Lottery’s Racetrax game. He placed a Superfecta bet and added the Bonus multiplier feature to his ticket.

He always plays his license plate numbers of 9, 3, 7 and 4, in that order, and did so on his 20-draw ticket. Those horses landed him a prize of $11,706! The Bonus multiplier in his winning race was 5, which turned his prize into $58,530!

The lucky man said he will put his prize toward his 50th birthday celebration. He’s already starting to plan a trip to Las Vegas with his friends.

The retailer is a lucky winner, too. The Exxon Station located at 4235 Montgomery Road in Howard County earns a $585.30 bonus for selling a winning Racetrax ticket of $10,000 or more. The bonus is equal to 1 percent of the prize.
