Slow day at work leads Maryland woman to $150,000 lottery prize


Published in Weird News

(UPI) A Maryland woman having a slow day at work at a grocery store bought some lottery tickets to pass the time and scratched off a $150,000 prize.

The Eastern Shore woman told Maryland Lottery officials it was a slow day at work at the Union Latina store on Beaglin Park Drive in Salisbury so she bought some scratch-off tickets to keep her occupied.

The woman said her first two tickets weren't winners, so she tried her luck with a third and the $150,000 Extreme ticket earned her the $150,000 top prize.


"I thought it was $50, but it read a $150,000 win," the player said. I thought, 'This can't be real.'

The winner said the prize money will go into her savings account for the time being.
