Truck Driver Hauls Away $10,000 Lottery Fortune

Finds lucky win with Your Fortune scratch-off

280-Your-Fortune-ITVMAn Orchard Beach truck driver who found his first big Maryland Lottery payday close to home at a 7-Eleven hit the road to claim his prize at Lottery headquarters in Baltimore. After playing scratch-offs two to three times a week in hopes of finding his fortune, the happy man bought a Your Fortune scratch-off that did the trick!

There was no particular reason for the lucky winner’s choice of games. The 72-year-old simply saw a $10 ticket that he liked and grabbed it. “It was a lot of numbers to comprehend at first,” said the Anne Arundel County resident. He eventually confirmed his $10,000 win and made his way downtown to claim his prize.

A truck driver for the entertainment industry for 27 years, the winner currently makes deliveries for an online video-streaming service. Although he has no major plans for his winnings, the lucky player plans to visit his sister in Florida later this year.

His lucky 7-Eleven #20640 is located at 162 Ritchie Highway in Severna Park. There are still lots of great prizes remaining on the Your Fortune scratch-off, including five $100,000 top prizes and eight $10,000 prizes.
