Maryland woman uses lottery winnings to buy $100,000 payout ticket


Published in Weird News

(UPI) A Maryland woman who once claimed two $500 lottery prizes in a single day said she used some winnings from a minor prize to buy a ticket that earned her a $100,000 jackpot.

The 65-year-old Baltimore woman told Maryland Lottery officials she won a small amount of money from a ticket she bought from the Giant store on Reisterstown Road in Baltimore and decided to put her winnings toward a 50X the Cash scratch-off.

The woman said she was shocked to reveal a $100,000 prize.

"I looked at it and said, 'Wait a minute,'" the winner recalled.


The woman said the first thing she did was call her brother to share the good news.

The winner said the prize was her largest to date, but she once scored two $500 prizes from scratch-off tickets in a single day.

The woman said her plans for the prize include buying a three-wheeler for her brother and a vacation for herself.
