Charles County grocery store manager wins top prize on FAST PLAY Winfall Doubler
Martika Savoy of Charles County was excited when she realized she had won $100,000 on FAST PLAY Winfall Doubler. Maybe too excited.
“I thought I was going to have my baby on the floor,” said the mom who is expecting her fourth child.
The Marbury resident said her boyfriend always plays different scratch-offs and FAST PLAY games, but she is a casual player. She hadn’t played a game in a few months but said her instincts told her to purchase a ticket.
“It was a spur of the moment decision. I said ‘why not play today’,” Martika explained.
The grocery store manager said some of her winnings will be used on a down payment on a house.
According to Martika, she enjoys traveling and taking her kids to amusement parks. She added she did not tell her kids that she was a winner but they should find out soon.
“Some of the money will go to my babies and my bills,” said the 31-year-old.
Martika is the fifth Winfall Doubler $100,000 winner. There are still 19 unclaimed $100,000 top prizes, 16 $50,000 prizes, 24 $20,000 prizes and 26 $10,000 prizes. There are also prizes ranging from $20 to $1,000.
Since Martika purchased her winning ticket at Pisgah General at 7015 Poorhouse Road in Charles County, the Indian Head retailer will receive $1,000 bonus.
