Glen Burnie Woman Wins $50,000 on Fantastic 5’s Scratch-Off
Wednesday, late afternoon, the 65-year-old Glen Burnie woman was doing a little shopping. A self-described, occasional scratch-off player, she decided to buy five Fantastic 5’s scratch-offs. The woman, who was accompanied to Lottery headquarters by her husband, said that she took the tickets home and played them there. She scratched the first, the second, the third and the fourth, to no avail. But, as she scratched her very last ticket, she revealed her $50,000 win.
“I was by myself and saw that I’d won $5,000 and just kept scratching,” said the winner. She then went out to the yard where her husband was working on a birdbath. “I’ll bet I can distract you from that,” she told him.
A bus attendant for special needs children, the winner intends to save most of her prize money and give some to her three grown children. “I might give some to my husband,” she added with a chuckle.
The couple will celebrate together this evening with plans to go to out to eat. “Yeah, I think we’ll go get some good shrimp at Schultz’s,” said the woman’s happy spouse.
The winning ticket was purchased at Pop Grocer & Deli, located at 7459 Furnace Branch Road in Glen Burnie.
