“Sunshine” of Severna Park scratched away until she landed a top-prize win.
Severna Park player wins $100,000 top prize
An Anne Arundel County woman kept scratching away until she found a top-prize win hiding in the last two lines of her $100,000 Lucky scratch-off.
The winner, who chose the nickname “Sunshine” to tell the story of her Lottery luck, was scratching off her instant ticket and it appeared she had a non-winner. “I was down to the second to last line. I thought it was a bust,” she said. “Then, I saw I had won.”
“Sunshine” was indeed a winner as her numbers matched up with the winning numbers to secure the $100,000 prize.
The medical field worker purchases scratch-offs weekly and has started playing Mega Millions, too, since the jackpot passed $1 billion. The estimated jackpot annuity for tonight’s Mega Millions drawing is $1.58 billion with an estimated cash option of $783.3 million.
“Sunshine” enjoys hiking and working, including her upcoming post at the annual Renaissance Festival. The 61-year-old is getting ready for the start of the new season.
She bought the winning scratch-off at Grand Ritchie Liquors located at 8149 Ritchie Highway in Pasadena. “Sunshine” said she always purchases her instant tickets at that store. For selling a $100,000 top-prize winning scratch-off, the Anne Arundel County retailer will receive a $1,000 bonus from the Lottery.
The $30 $100,000 Lucky game went on sale on Sept. 20, 2021. “Sunshine” is the 34th top-prize winner, but 31 $100,000 prizes are still unclaimed. There are also prizes ranging from $30 to $5,000.
