Tax-Free Scratch-off Win Amazes Calvert County Trucker

Claims $50,000 Maryland Lottery Prize

Biggest Taxes Paid EverA Chesapeake Beach truck driver who rolled into Lottery headquarters in Baltimore last week is amazed at his good fortune! He claimed a $50,000 all-taxes paid prize won on a Biggest Taxes Paid Ever scratch-off.

The Calvert County man found his Lottery luck close to home at a Chesapeake Beach retailer.

“I stopped by a store to cash in a Keno winner and decided to get a scratch ticket,” our winner said. “I saw the game with the tax-free prize and pointed to it.”

The 62-year-old scratched the $5 ticket in the store. Although he immediately realized the size of the prize, he remained calm. “I said to myself, ‘I sure am lucky!’ ” he recalled.

Our winner’s list of things to do with his prize include handling some personal financial issues, improving his home and property and taking a vacation. Our winner’s lucky retailer is Twin Beach Market at 8426 Bayside Road in Chesapeake Beach. Many top prizes remain on the Biggest Taxes Paid Ever game, which launched in December. The scratch-off has six tax-free $50,000 winners in stores, six $5,000 winners and 17 $1,000 winners along with multiple lower-level prizes.
