Wins $24,783 on Superfecta Bonus bet
A Rockville man who plays Maryland Lottery games several times a week just won the biggest Racetrax prize of his life.
The lucky landscaper, who has won small amounts playing Racetrax in the past, boosted his prize to five figures by placing a quick-pick Superfecta bet with the Bonus multiplier feature added. His 15-draw bet on the 12, 5, 1 and 3 horses to finish in first, second, third and fourth place in that exact order gave him a $24,783 win.
The 64-year-old has only shared news of his Lottery luck with his friends. He plans to pay bills with his prize and will save the rest of the windfall.
His Racetrax luck occurred at the Cheese & Wine Shop located at 2501 Ennalls Avenue in Silver Spring. The Montgomery County retailer will receive a $247 bonus from the Lottery for selling a winning Racetrax ticket of $10,000 or more. The bonus is equal to 1 percent of the prize.
