Scratch-Off has “Shock-Value” for Hyattsville Man

Wins $30,000 Top Prize on Blackout Bingo Scratch-Off

“I had no clue – talk about shocking,” said the 52-year-old Prince Georges County man. He was describing the second-wave of excitement that hit him when he realized that his winning Blackout Bingo scratch-off was worth much more than he originally thought.

“I had an ‘X’ on one of the game’s Bingo cards and thought I had won $500,” he said. “I was in heaven. Just pumped up and excited.” After further examination, he was happily surprised to find out that he had actually won the ticket’s top prize of $30,000. When the Federal contractor claimed his prize at Lottery headquarters he was still searching for words to describe the feeling. “This is unbelievable,” he said.

The lucky man purchased the $30,000 winning scratch-off last Sunday with proceeds from other winning Blackout Bingo tickets. “It’s my favorite game,” he said.

He has shared news of the win with only a select group of friends, and is thankful for his good fortune. “I feel like I was blessed because I do good things for my friends and neighbors,” said the winner.

The winning ticket was purchased at Eastern Avenue BP, located at 4501 Eastern Avenue in Mount Rainier, MD.
