The 46-year-old salesman stopped to buy his weekly Powerball ticket on Friday. After the purchase, he quickly glanced at his numbers and noticed two 11’s on one line. One was one of the five white balls, the other was the Powerball. Later that night, he happened to look at the clock and, lo and behold, it read 11:11 pm. So, perhaps he shouldn’t have been surprised when his Powerball ticket with those 11’s yielded a $10,000 win. “I kept seeing those numbers,” said the father-of-two. “I thought it might mean something.”
The lucky Lottery fan was in good spirits over the weekend. He thought about the poodle which he had recently rescued and how it was getting strong and gaining weight. He also thought about that Lottery ticket and those 11’s. But, it wasn’t until Monday morning that he finally checked his ticket and discovered that he was $10,000 richer.
“I checked the numbers on mdlottery.com,” said the winner. “I saw the matching numbers and started to shout quietly in my office.” He then called his wife with the good news. “She told me to stop teasing,” he said. After he was finally able to convince her that he was telling the truth, he told a couple co-workers about his windfall – one of whom very recently had his own $10,000 Lottery scratch-off win. The happy Perry Hall resident intends to use his winnings to buy a dining room set for his wife and pay bills. The winning ticket was purchased at Fairground Plaza Liquors, located at 41 W. Aylesbury Rd. in Lutherville.
A mild mannered 51-year-old Chestertown player smiled as if he swallowed a canary as he entered the Lottery’s Claim Center. His joy was due to some very good fortune and luck. He won a total of $20,000 on two $10,000 Mega Millions tickets.
The maintenance worker has a regular routine he sticks to when playing Mega Millions. He has some play slips already filled out that he chooses from every Tuesday and Friday. On this particular Friday, the lucky player chose three play slips and played that morning. He repeated the ritual that evening, purchasing three more Mega Millions tickets. As luck would have it, the ticket he played twice matched four numbers plus the Mega Ball, winning him $10,000 for each winning ticket. “The numbers are all family birthdays,” he told Lottery officials.
It took a couple of weeks for the winner to check his tickets. After scanning the first ticket, the message said to go to the Lottery. After scanning a few more, the same message came up again. “I like to scan the tickets to see the congratulations message,” he said. “But, the ‘Go to the Lottery’ message was a first,” he continued. Still skeptical about the win, he had the cashier print out the winning numbers. Indeed, it was a twin win for $10,000.
A little laid back about his win, the player had a silly thought. “I thought the win was based on the amount of people that play,” he said. “I thought I would get a couple hundred dollars after splitting it.” He later found out, that was not the case. He said he plans to use the winnings to pay bills, buy a car and donate to church. The winning ticket was purchased at Lewes Dairy, located at 840 Street in Chestertown.
Three $1 million Top Prizes Still Remain on Scratch-Off
Shaking his head and expressing disbelief, the winner’s son kept repeating, “This doesn’t happen to people like her.” The “her” was his mother and winner of the second of five $1 million top prizes on the Big Money Mega Play scratch-off. The happy winner, who was accompanied to Lottery headquarters by her son and a friend, is a lifelong caregiver, both in her work and on the home front. “She gives her last dollar to everybody,” said the son. “She gives it away and does without.”
The 63-year-old was on her way to work yesterday and after stopping for coffee, stopped to buy a couple Lottery scratch-offs. A fan of the Lottery since its inception in 1973, the happy winner recounted winning $40 the very first time she played a Lottery game over 37 years ago. A few years back she also won $7,777 on a scratch-off. But, those wins pale in comparison to her latest windfall.
Good luck struck yesterday afternoon when she purchased two instant tickets. She revealed her win right in the parking lot of the Lottery retailer and quickly went back into the store to confirm her millionaire status. Once confirmed, she proceeded to her care-giving job. A few hours into her eight and a half hour shift, she called her son to share the good news. “He asked how much I won, if it was a lot,” she said. “I said ‘how much do you call a lot?’” The son responded $1,000. After telling him to tack on three more zeros, she then called her brother and friend with her news. The winner intends to use her newfound fortune in her typical fashion—to help others. She will pay off her son’s mortgage, give money to her daughter for a house down payment and establish a trust fund for her two grandchildren. The winning ticket was purchased at Ocean Highway Exxon, located at 324 Sunburst Hwy. in Cambridge.
Sunday was full of Ravens wins here in Charm City. After our home team trounced the Broncos, Marc LaGrossa scored his own big victory winning one of the Ravens Cash Fantasy scratch-off’s $1 million instant top prizes.
The Eastern Shore man and his girlfriend were on their way home that same day when he stopped to pick up some beverages for his brother. While in the store, he decided to buy a Ravens Cash Fantasy scratch-off. With his girlfriend in the driver’s seat, they continued home and Marc proceeded to scratch his ticket. “I looked at it and told her ‘I think I just won $1 million,’” said Marc. The soft-spoken winner said that his girlfriend didn’t believe him until they reached their destination and he showed her the ticket. Then her reaction was much like his — cool, calm and collected. “I don’t show much emotion,” said the father-of-one. His dad, Charles, who accompanied Marc to Lottery headquarters to claim his prize, summed up the winner’s demeanor saying, “If he was any more laidback, he’d fall back.”
Marc, who works fixing pallets and is also a member of the Marine Reserves, intends to use his winnings wisely. “I’ll keep doing what I’m doing,” he said. “I’ll pay bills, put some away and hopefully buy a house.” Reflecting on his son’s newfound fortune, Charles said of his youngest son, “I’m happy for him. This is a good start.” The winning ticket was purchased at Jinx’s Liquors Inc., located at 1225 Shopping Center Rd. in Stevensville.
Like last year’s scratch-off, each Ravens Cash Fantasy ticket features a perforated portion with a special “EXTRA YARDS” code that players can enter online at mdlottery.com/ravens to win premium prizes that include season tickets for life, an away-trip with the team, the chance to be a team photographer for a game, and numerous other experiential prizes. There is still a $1 million instant prize also available to be won.
Wins $20,000 Powerball Prize
The 62-year-old Baltimore retiree enjoys playing Mega Millions and Powerball each week. Although he looks forward to the games, rarely does he look for the winning numbers until days after the drawings. “I stash my tickets in my car or in the house somewhere. It’s sometimes a week before I look at them,” said the winner.
Recently he was in a local store to purchase a money gram when he remembered that he had five Powerball tickets which he hadn’t checked. When the first one was scanned and the message read “Go to Lottery Headquarters,” he was immediately excited.
“It must be over $5, 000,” he said to himself. The winner had matched four white balls and the Power Ball on his Quick Pick ticket to win the third-tier prize of $10,000. Since he had opted for the Powerplay, his prize increased to $20,000. Having no luck with the other four tickets, he ran back to his car to call his wife and tell her his unbelievable news.
The retired correctional officer and father-of-one, intends to invest his winnings. The winning ticket was purchased at Midway Inn, located at 12320 Pulaski Hwy. in Joppa.
