$50,000 Prize Claimed on Platinum Rewards Scratch-Off
A trip to the store for some coffee brought home a big scratch-off win. Sheana O’Brien, a building supply company employee, always stops for a cup of coffee to start her day. This morning was no different. Her boyfriend left early to fill her request and while he was there, a new scratch-off caught his eye. “I bought it because I had never seen that ticket before,” he said. So, he purchased one Platimum Rewards scratch-off that turned out to be a $50,000 winner.
He took the coffee and the scratch-off home to Sheana, who was still half asleep when she scratched it. “I saw that I had matched one number and was excited because I thought I had won $10,000,” smiled the 24-year-old winner. “My boyfriend scratched the rest of the ticket and he was the one who saw the win was really for $50,000.” The winner said she called all of her family and friends this morning to share the good news.
The couple just purchased a new home and will use the winnings for home improvements. They will also use the money towards private school and a college fund for their two children, and will use some for a Disney vacation.
The winning ticket was purchased at XPress Mart, located at 7237 Ritchie Highway in Glen Burnie.
