A Frederick woman is $2,000,000 richer after purchasing a winning lottery scratch-off ticket from Sheetz at 1600 Rosemont Ave in Frederick. Full story below courtesy of the Maryland Lottery:
A Frederick County scratch-off fan has dreamed of owning a beach home all of her life. She rarely played $30 games, which carry top prizes of up to $2 million. However, her recent decision to take a chance on a $30 200X The Cash instant ticket led to a $2 million top-prize win that will allow her to make her dream a reality.
The anonymous winner, calling herself “New Beach House Owner” to tell her winning story, found Lottery luck waiting at Sheetz #242 in Frederick. She frequently visits the store to buy gas and a hot dog-soda combo deal.
While awaiting her combo order, the Frederick resident decided to buy Lottery scratch-offs. Usually, she opts for $5 and $10 instant tickets, but something about the $30 200X The Cash game caught her eye. Her order wasn’t ready yet so she decided to scratch off her instant ticket in the store. The lucky woman was overwhelmed with excitement seeing the $2 million prize on her scratch-off. She never did get her hot dog and soda!
“I went and got in my car and locked the door,” the happy winner told Lottery officials. She was so shocked that her hands were shaking. The first people she called to share the news with were her children and her son, who thought she was joking, demanded to see the winning scratch-off.
The retiree spends her free time running errands and taking care of family members. She can soon do so with an ocean view after fulfilling her dream of owning beachfront property.
Her lucky Lottery retailer, Sheetz #242, also wins. The Lottery will give the Frederick store located at 1600 Rosemont Avenue a $2,000 bonus for selling a $2 million top-prize winning scratch-off.
“New Beach House Owner” won the first top prize on the 200X the Cash game, which went on sale last month. Four $2 million top prizes remain, along with six $50,000 prizes, 10 $10,000 prizes and others ranging from $30 to $5,000.
