Retired Maryland Housekeeper Wins Third $50,000 Lottery
While some folks pray for Lady Luck to shine her face on them, others bask in her full glory. The latter is the case of a retired housekeeper from Maryland who recently won her third $50,000 lottery prize from the same store.
According to a Maryland lottery press release, about two weeks ago, the 61-year-old Maryland woman purchased two $5 Lucky scratch-off tickets at Talbert's Ice & Beverage Service.
While the first one didn't work, the second ticket clinched her the $50,000 prize. When the woman realized she had won, she was so surprised and shocked that she called her best friend, who noted:
When she told me, I was so happy for her," the best friend told lottery officials. "It was hard to believe that she won $50,000 again.
While it is an impressive feat to win a lottery once, this woman's case is even more unique because she has now won the $50,000 prize three times. She won the first and second prize in 2018, after buying winning tickets at the same store.
"I just didn't believe it, again!" the woman told lottery officials. "People play every day and not win. It's amazing that I won three times," she commented.
According to the release, she will direct the new lottery money towards home improvements.
