Wins $77,000 on Magnificent 7’s scratch-off
Theresa Biel’s hands were shaking as she entered Lottery headquarters today. The shakiness was due to the fact that she was holding a $77,000 winning Magnificent 7’s scratch-off in her hands. It all started last Friday when she made her daily visit to Jack’s Fine Food store.
“I buy tickets everyday…usually more on Friday’s because its payday,” says the 48-year-old winner. But this particular Friday was like no other. During her visit to the store, she had an interesting conversation with a Racetrax player. The “mystery man” chatted with her about winning money and said her lucky day was right around the corner. Theresa then purchased two $10 tickets and won a little money. Afterwards, she bought two $5 tickets, including a Magnificent 7’s scratch-off. She sat down at the table and scratched her way to $77,000. “I couldn’t believe it. I showed it to the gentleman and he was excited. I was shaking like a leaf,” she said.
Theresa, who has been an administrative assistant for 30 years, plans to buy a new car, spend some on family and friends, and save the rest. The winning ticket was purchased at Jack’s Fine Foods, located at 4519 Kenwood Avenue in Baltimore.
