A New York truck driver visiting his cousin in Maryland stopped in to buy a lottery ticket at a local 7-Eleven where his cousin works and ended up winning $100,000.
Prabhjit Singh was in Woodlawn visiting his cousin when he decided to buy a handful of scratch-off tickets and won big on the Six Figures instant ticket.
While he waited to speak to his cousin, he decided to try his luck on a few scratch-off tickets.
“When I scanned the ticket, it said it was a $100,000 winner,” Singh said. “I’m thinking the scanner must be broken, so I gave the ticket to my cousin to scan it.”
Selling a $100,000 top-prize winning scratch-off also benefits the convenience store. For its role in the transaction, 7-Eleven #20772 will receive a $1,000 bonus from the Lottery.
