$50,000 Winning Scratch-off Sold at Sunoco

A Montgomery County resident is $50,000 richer after purchasing a winning lottery scratch-off ticket from Sunoco at 10550 Connecticut Ave in Kensington. This same gas station also sold a $100,000 winning scratch-off in March and a $50,000 winning Powerball ticket in April. Full story below courtesy of the Maryland Lottery:
“Whenever I’m in the mood to play,” a county government employee explained to Maryland Lottery officials, “I always do my research first.” He conducted that research by visiting mdlottery.com, the Lottery website, and accomplished the winning by selecting a Money Bag Multiplier instant ticket to play last week.

“I like to check to see how many top prizes are still out there for each game,” the Prince George’s County resident said. “It feels like I have a better shot at finding a big one.”

Before leaving home to meet friends, the 47-year-old frequent player noticed that Money Bag Multiplier, a $10 scratch-off game that debuted in April, still had one $100,000 top prize available. He also noted that three of the game’s $50,000 second-tier prizes had not yet been claimed.

Later, when stopping for gas at Kensington Sunoco, the scratch-off fan saw several posters detailing recent Lottery wins at the business located at 10550 Connecticut Avenue. “I hadn’t planned on getting my tickets there, but it suddenly seemed like the right place.” He picked out several scratch-off games to play, including Money Bag Multiplier. “My homework led me to a few different games, but Money Bag Multiplier was my primary target.”

He quickly uncovered a $1,000 prize, which shocked him. “What a great way to start a night out, I thought to myself.” But wait, there’s more! “Then, I saw the 50X symbol. That’s when I discovered what shock really felt like.” Featured image courtesy of Google Maps.
