“Honey, You’ll Never Guess What Happened Today”

Dundalk Man Surprises Wife With $50,000 Trump Card Win

Trump CardA bit of exercise with his friends was all that was on the mind of a Dundalk man when he visited Eastpoint Mall this morning to do some walking.  His day, it turned out, would involve a little more excitement than he expected as well as a little more travelling – all the way to Lottery Headquarters to claim a $50,000scratch-off prize.

Today’s winner, a retired Bethlehem Steel electrician, plays lottery games often and has had moderate success over the years.  He bought a handful of instant tickets this morning from the American News stand and played them there at the mall among his fellow walkers.  “I scratched them and found a few small winners.  Then I came to the last ticket.”  That last one, Trump Card, was a particular favorite.  “I’d won with it a couple of times before.”  He scratched.  He looked.  He looked again.  He studied – and then all conversation at the table stopped with his announcement, “I don’t believe this.”

With the claiming paperwork behind him, the Dundalk winner had one more exciting job ahead of him.  “I’m heading home now to tell my wife the good news.  Her afternoon is about to get as exciting as my morning was.”

Dundalk Woman Wins $100,000 Money Money Money Top Prize

Money Money MoneyThe retired Harbor Tunnel toll employee barely made it to Lottery Headquarters today.  Despite her profession, she has a phobia of being in enclosed places.  The tunnel, the beltway and the elevator ride proved to be nerve-racking for this lucky winner. After confronting her fears and navigating the challenging route, the 64-year-old arrived at Lottery Headquarters to claim her $100,000 prize on the Money Money Money scratch-off ticket. “I came through the tunnel, the wind was blowing and I was shaking,” said the woman, who was accompanied by one of her sons and a friend of the family to claim her winnings

Although thrilled with her newfound wealth, she was so nervous and excited about making the trip to Lottery Headquarters that her stomach was upset. “It’s still upset,” she told Lottery officials. Recounting her winning experience, she said “When I saw all those 0’s I thought I was seeing things. First I laughed. Then I cried.”  She attempted to call her son but was unable to reach him. “I won and couldn’t tell anyone. I left my son a message saying ‘Call me, call me.’” When finally delivering the good news, her son’s response was that he would have to see the ticket himself. “He thought I was pulling his leg,” she said.

The winner intends to use her windfall to purchase a new car, have a nice Christmas for her large family and fix her kitchen floor. The winning ticket was purchased at Wise Avenue Citgo located at 220 Wise Ave. in Baltimore County.  The Money Money Money scratch-off still has a $100,000 top prize remaining on the ticket.

Columbia Woman Wins $50,000 Bonus Match 5 Prize

Bonus Match 5A Howard County woman received a huge bonus while playing the Maryland Lottery.  As usual, the 51-year-old played her daily numbers.  But, this day turned out different when she matched all five of her Bonus Match 5 numbers, bringing home the $50,000 top prize.

“She plays all the time, and our daughter always looks up the winning numbers for her at mdlottery.com,” her husband of almost 30 years said.  On August 9th, when the winner checked the numbers, everything changed.   “She called me at work and was so excited,” her husband continued. “But I had to be calm because I was in a meeting.”  She kept the winning ticket in her purse until arriving at Lottery headquarters to claim her prize

With her winnings, the mother-of-two plans to get her daughter a car, pay for college and pay taxes.  She and her husband have owned their own business since the 1970’s.  The winning ticket was purchased at Box N Save, located at 3409 Dundalk Avenue in Baltimore.

‘Just Another Day’ for Long-Time Lottery Player

Lucky Woman Wins Her Second $50,000 Prize

Sizzlin' Spot CrosswordThe Maryland Lottery has been good to a Baltimore woman; she walked into Lottery Headquarters this afternoon to claim her second $50,000 prize in six years.  Her first big win was on Bonus Match 5. In addition to these large wins, the committed Lottery player won another $15,000 scratch-off prize as well as many additional smaller prizes over the years.

“I play the Lottery every day” said the mother-of-four. “Scratch-offs and numbers games are my favorites.”  The 60-year-old Baltimore City resident has been playing since the inception of the Lottery in 1973 and doesn’t plan on stopping soon.

The winner, who hid her excitement very well, said that she took the $5 Sizzlin’ Spot Crossword home to scratch at her leisure.  When she saw that she had won the top prize, she said “hmmmm….I won again.”  She nonchalantly said that she will give some of the money to her kids and put the rest away until she decides what to do with it.

The winning ticket was purchased at American News at 7839 Eastpoint Mall in Dundalk.
