Winning a $ 100,000 jackpot with a Maryland Lottery Scratch-Off called Ravens was like a ray of sunshine lighting up an especially bleak year, said a happy Howard County player when he went to collect his prize.
A feeling of luck led the IT professional to purchase the $ 5 lottery scratch-off while shopping at an Ellicott City grocery store.
The man said he buys tickets from time to time and was at home with his family when he scratched the instant ticket and discovered victory.
Revealing the $ 100,000 prize was like watching the sun rise after many days of storms, he said. According to the lottery jackpot winner, the good news is a welcome break from what has been a dramatic and complicated year for him.
The lucky Ellicott City resident plans to use the award to pay off some debts, including a car loan, and increase his savings account.
And good luck in the lottery was waiting for him at Harris Teeter # 382 at 11075 Resort Road in Ellicott City. For selling a jackpot winning scratch-off for that lottery, the company will receive a bonus from the Maryland Lottery of $ 1,000.
