A man from Baltimore in Maryland who had a day off from his job in the healthcare field has spoken of how he found himself winning $100,000 on a scratch card.

Just last week we told you about a Baltimore woman who won $30,000 on a scratch card, and now another lucky Baltimore man, who did not reveal his full identity, told Maryland Lottery officials that when he found himself close to a store where he’d had good luck on the Maryland Lottery in the past, he couldn’t help himself but to try his hand again. The 32-year old’s day off took him to the McLellan Liquor store in Baltimore, where he chose three Winter Ice Multiplier scratch cards. An Irish lottery winner recently bought her ticket from a lucky store in Co. Laios.

“I picked out the Winter Ice Multiplier game because it was a new one,” the lucky husband and father told lottery officials, just like Ulysses Johnson who won $50,000 on a brand new Maryland Lottery scratch card. “It felt like I needed something new to get my luck flowing.” Unfortunately, however, not one of those three tickets won him a prize, but the Maryland Lottery player’s story doesn’t end there. A Texan who won the Mega Millions jackpot recently thanked his stop off for coffee.

Just as he was about to leave the store, the Parkville resident decided to try his luck one more time, and bought another instant scratch card. Instead of scratching it in the store, as he’d done with the previous three lottery tickets, the Maryland man took it home with him and decided to change his tactics. A National Lottery winner from Wales won £10,000 on a scratch card on her day off, which was also the day before her wedding!

Scratching the numbers from right to left instead of left to right, the Maryland Lottery player found himself staring in disbelief at a $100,000 winner. “I shouted for my wife as I ran from room to room,” the lucky scratch card winner said, and once he found her, the pair couldn’t believe their eyes. “She was crying, I was shaking. We were a mess,” the winner smiled.

Now, with the $100,000 Maryland Lottery prize in the bank, the couple plan to use it to pay off some debts and put a deposit down on a new home.
