Silver Spring Cook Whips Up First Lottery Win

Claims $50,000 top prize on You Win game

269-You-Win-ITVM_P2-purpleA Montgomery County cook found the perfect recipe for a $50,000 top-prize Maryland Lottery scratch-off win.

The 32-year-old stopped by Crescent Convenience in Bethesda and bought five You Win scratch-offs. He added a pinch of Lottery luck, took the games home to play and enjoyed a hearty win that has kept him smiling.

The Silver Spring resident said he had no particular reason for selecting the games. He saw them and decided to buy a few to see if the You Win game would deliver a win. “I was very happy,” the lucky man said.

The happy cook said he will pay bills with his prize and possibly take a vacation.

Also a winner is Crescent Convenience. The lucky retailer located at 7475 Wisconsin Avenue in Bethesda will receive a $500 bonus from the Lottery for selling the top-prize ticket in the $5 game. You Win has three unclaimed $50,000 top prizes remaining as well as thousands of smaller prizes ranging from $5 to $5,000. Be sure to visit your favorite retailers for your lucky ticket.
