Talbot County Man Receives $30,000 Birthday Surprise

Wins $30,000 Top Prize on Cash Lines Scratch-Off

Cash LinesSaturday’s birthday get together was especially special for one Talbot County man. The brand-new 23-year-old was out celebrating with friends at his favorite Lottery retailer when he made his lucky purchase.  “We were playing Keno and then one of my friends bought a Cash Lines ticket,” said the winner. “I decided to buy four of the same ticket.” He played two of the four scratch-offs at the store to no avail. He then made his way home where he and his wife of almost ten months would get the thrill of a lifetime. With his spouse by his side, he scratched the third ticket to reveal the $30,000 Cash Lines top prize.  “We couldn’t believe it,” the lucky winner said.

The couple will split the $30,000 Cash Lines prize money. The birthday boy intends to pay off his car and scratch more tickets.  Still in disbelief, his wife doesn’t know yet what she wants to do with her share. Both are keeping quiet about their win. So far, only family members are aware of their newfound fortune. The winning ticket was purchased at Easton Super Soda, located at 326 East Dover St. in Easton.


Same Numbers, Different Result for Easton Man

Claims $10,000 Powerball Prize

The 43-year-old Easton man has played the same numbers for every Powerball and Mega Millions drawing since the large jackpot games became available in Maryland. Friday afternoon was no exception.  Passing a 7-11 on the way to lunch with his sister, he told her he needed to stop and buy his tickets. Their short detour was long on benefits, resulting in his $10,000 Powerball win.

The federal employee was watching the drawing and saw the first number come up “Great,” he said. Then the second number and the third matched. The forth wasn’t one of his numbers, but the Powerball matched to give him his third-tier prize.  “I jumped off of the couch and my two cats looked at me like I was out of my mind,” he said.  “I didn’t get any sleep last night.”

The bachelor hasn’t told anyone about his newfound wealth and doesn’t intend to. He plans to use his winnings for surprises for some special people and to pay off his car. “This is a lot of money,” he said matter-of-factly.

The winning ticket was purchased at the 7-11, located at 8117 – 1 Ocean City Gateway in Easton.

Hospital Visit Brings Luck to Grasonville Woman

Wins $30,000 Playing Blackout Bingo Game

Blackout BingoVisiting a sick relative in the hospital is rarely a happy experience.  It’s a nice thing to do, of course, and hopefully it raises the patient’s spirits, but it almost never results in shouts of joy.  Well, yesterday’s hospital visit by a Queen Anne’s County woman proved to be very much the exception as, moments after arriving, she scratched her way to $30,000.

“We stopped for gas near the hospital and I asked my son to get me six Blackout Bingo scratch tickets,” today’s winner told officials.  Why Blackout Bingo and why six of them?  “It’s my favorite game and six has always been my lucky number,” she explained, “And, wouldn’t you know it, it was that sixth ticket that won for me.”

Surprisingly, this instant ticket veteran thought at first that she’d won just $500.  “My son and I looked again and noticed a few more matches.  You should have heard me yelling when we figured out how much it was worth.”  Her Lottery winnings, she told us, would be spent on her family – those who are sick and those who are well.  “Everyone will get some happiness out of this.”

Lottery luck found our Grasonville winner at the Shell Station, 110 South Washington St .in Easton.

Pick 3 Triple Play Promotion [VIDEO]

UPDATE: July 9
A lot of players have been asking, what happens to prizes if they go unclaimed?  If prizes go unclaimed, the funds will go back into the unclaimed prize fund. All unclaimed prizes, by law, are required to be returned to the players in some fashion.  In order to do so, we develop numerous promotions during the course of the year using the unclaimed prize money as a way of returning the money to the players.  For instance, unclaimed prizes are used for promotions such as Keno Sprinkler, Racetrax Doubler and Hit It Here.

Recently Engaged Easton Woman Wins $50,000 Instantly

You’d think that a $50,000 Lottery win would be the high-point of just about anyone’s week.  What could possibly top it?  Just ask Lee Shorter of Easton who got engaged the same week that she won the Money Surplus top prize.

Lee, a 22-year-old online researcher, played the new Money Surplus scratch-off this morning when she accompanied her mom to the store to cash a winning Pick 3 ticket.  She played her scratch-off in the car while talking with her mom, but the talking soon stopped.

“I just couldn’t believe what I was seeing,” Lee told officials. “So I had my mom look.”  The two returned to the store for further confirmation and then headed off for a breakfast date with Lee’s dad and the newest addition to the family – her fiancée.  The couple got engaged on Thanksgiving Day.  “We broke the news there in the restaurant, it was a memorable meal.”

The future bride will dedicate some of her winnings to wedding expenses.  She also plans to make this holiday season a very special one for her family.

Lee found her Lottery luck at Wishing Well Liquors, 786 Idlewild Ave. in Easton.
