Wins Top Prize on King Size Cash Scratch-Off
When Kevin Louie stopped to buy a sandwich yesterday during his lunch break, he never imagined he would leave lunch with anything more than a full stomach. That all changed when he decided to purchase a King Size Cash scratch-off. After lunch, he scratched the ticket and saw that he won $250,000.
The 51-year-old immediately called his wife. Kevin said, “She asked me if that meant she could have $100 for Christmas shopping. It took me a minute to realize that she must have thought I said $250, not $250,000. When she realized, she started screaming!”
The Southern States technician was born and raised in Garrett County. Prior to this win, the largest Lottery prize Kevin has collected was $5,000. With his winnings, he plans to pay bills, save some money and have a great Christmas.
The winning ticket was purchased at BF’s Food Store in Oakland. Kevin was the first Lottery player to win the top prize on this new ticket. Two additional $250,000 top prizes remain.
