A Racetrax regular stopped into Maryland Lottery headquarters this week to pad her pockets with a $17,695 prize just before the holiday season!
The anonymous Gwynn Oak woman is a seasoned Racetrax player, saying that she is almost a daily player. “At the very least, I’ll stop in somewhere really quick and place a random $20 bet,” she said.
The reason she plays so much is because she has enjoyed so much success. The lucky 60-year-old said she is “no stranger to winning,” estimating that one year she had about $37,000 in prizes from different Racetrax bets. When she is not placing a quick-pick wager, the happy winner plays a special set of numbers in different combinations. Her strategy has led to many wins!
Her $17,695 prize, which is her biggest win ever, came from one of her quick-pick bets. The grateful grandmother said she decided to stop at Anjels Café in Baltimore on her way home from work. She placed a random $1 Superfecta bet with 20 draws. The horses — numbered 3, 8, 7, and 9 — ended up being the perfect ponies to play and brought our lucky lady her great prize!
She plans to use her prize to pay off bills and do holiday shopping for her grandchildren.
The other winner in this story is the Lottery retailer! For selling a winning Racetrax ticket of $10,000 or more, Anjels Café at 6401 Security Boulevard in Baltimore earns a bonus of $176.95, equal to 1 percent of the prize.
