Kevin Baker just knew he was going to win. The 38-year-old sat in his car in the parking lot on his way to work on Thursday morning, his hands shaking.
Kevin said he was excited when the first nine numbers he scratched off revealed a $10,000 win, but when his tenth number made him $25,000 richer, he was ecstatic.
“My hands were itching,” he said. “I could feel it was going to be something big.”
Kevin said he buys a Lottery ticket almost every day. He bought his winning scratch-off on Wednesday, picking Keno since it is his fiancé’s favorite game.
The lucky winner thinks today’s win is just the beginning. He said he has a feeling that his luck will help him to one day win the Maryland Lottery’s Mega Millions jackpot.
In the meantime, Kevin plans to use his winnings to pay some bills, and he hopes to take his daughter to Disney World in February to celebrate her fourth birthday.
The winning ticket was purchased at N.P. Liquors, located at 8860 Waltham Woods Road in Baltimore.
