BALTIMORE, MD – A retired Baltimore couple has won $100,000 on a lottery scratch-off ticket sold at a local grocery store.
When they checked the ticket, they didn’t believe their eyes, so they took it to the lottery retailer.
According to the Maryland Lottery, Wanting to verify the prize amount, the wife took the $5 scratch-off to one of the store clerks for scanning. The clerk did so and saw the message, “Take to Lottery.” She assured the players that they indeed won a very big prize! The husband signed the instant winning ticket in the store and the pair continued with their plans for the day before heading home to put the ticket in a safe place.
The couple plans to keep their winnings a secret and bank the funds for a rainy day.
Giant, located at 4622 Wilkens Avenue in Baltimore, will receive a $1,000 bonus from the Lottery for selling a $100,000 top-prize winning scratch-off.
