Wins $50,000 Top Prize Playing Queen of Hearts Scratch-Off
A very lucky Pocomoke City man just left Lottery headquarters for the second time in less than six months. The winner claimed a $50,000 Queen of Hearts top prize today, topping his $30,000 American Classics win from April 1st.
The 57-year-old winner scratched his latest winning ticket in his truck, outside of the store where it was purchased. He called his wife as soon as he won. “I was in the grocery store when he called and I could hardly hear him,” his wife said. “All I heard was $5,000 and I said okay and hung up the phone.” It wasn’t until she got home that she found out it was actually 10 times $5,000.
“We didn’t mention it the last time we were here, but it must be our lucky Yorkshire terrier name Keno that has brought us all this Lottery luck,” they both agreed. The win came just in time for their 30th wedding anniversary on September 30th.
The lucky winner wanted to get a new heating system last time he won. He didn’t get it back then, but plans on using some of his new prize money to purchase it and to pay off his car. The winning ticket was purchased at the Cheers/Duck In on Lynn Haven Drive in Pocomoke City.
