Silver Spring Man Hits $100,000 Lottery Jackpot

Claims top prize on Jackpot! scratch-off

163-Jackpot-ITVM_P1-blueWearing a big smile but seemingly in a state of disbelief, a loyal Maryland Lottery player who won $100,000 on the Jackpot! scratch-off walked into the Lottery Winner’s Lounge to discover another surprise – a standing ovation by Lottery staff!

The Silver Spring resident simply grinned. A man of few words, he repeated only that he was “very, very happy” about his win and planned to keep it a secret. The 53-year-old said he enjoys playing all of the Lottery’s games and has only won big once before. The $10,000 prize he claimed on another scratch-off is nothing compared to this big win!

The married man found his Lottery luck at 7-Eleven #39564 at 7311 Washington Boulevard in Elkridge. For selling the top-prize ticket, the Howard County retailer will receive a $1,000 bonus from the Lottery. The $10 game has one $100,000 top-prize winning ticket still in Maryland stores.
