Racetrax Player from D.C. Who Plays Big, Wins Big $19,905 Prize

Federal government employee considers game a hobby

A Maryland Lottery player who lives in Washington, D.C. sticks to one game, Racetrax, which he says has been very good to him. Most recently, the dedicated player won $19,905.

His play style isn’t for the faint of heart.

“I play big,” he said. Indeed, for his $19,905 win on May 18, he placed a Superfecta Wheel bet using a combination of 10 digits based on numbers significant to his family. Then, he added the Bonus feature and played his combination for 17 races.

A federal government employee, he says Racetrax is his primary hobby and he wins frequently enough to keep it interesting.

“I’ve won multiple times,” he said, adding that he has scored some solid cash in the past. He plays both in Maryland and through the D.C. Lottery, which also offers a horse-racing game.

As for his plan for the prize, the winner said some of the funds will go toward his vacation, some will finance car repairs and “I’ll be giving some to Maryland Racetrax to win again!”

Sharing in his good fortune is 7-Eleven #11667 at 8900 Edmonston Road in College Park, which sold the hot ticket. The store picks up a bonus from the Lottery of $199.05, equal to 1 percent of the prize, for selling a winning Racetrax ticket of $10,000 or more.
