Walmart Employee Celebrates Birthday with $50,000 Win

Hurlock purchase nets top prize on Instant Riches scratch-off

A Dorchester Walmart employee celebrated her birthday with an early surprise that would send most people reeling. When the young woman stopped into a convenience store, she had no idea that she would uncover a $50,000 prize on her Instant Riches scratch-off.

She purchased a couple of five dollar scratch-offs from the store, including one Instant Riches ticket before heading to her parked car to scratch-the tickets. She had only just begun scratching her Instant Riches scratch-off when she had uncovered a spot that appeared to show a $10,000 prize. After a few moments of excitement, she continued to scratch the ticket revealing four more $10,000 prizes for a total of $50,000. “At that moment, I was filled with anxiety and heart fluttering,” said the winner.

The winner said she plans to keep news of the win quiet for now, but may reveal the good news to family later this month. She plans to put her prize to good use, paying off her car and making charitable donations to her two favorite charities: the Children’s Miracle Network and the St Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital.

The winning ticket was purchased at the Hurlock Goose Creek convenience store, located at 105 Delaware Avenue in Hurlock.
