A single mother from Rockville won $50,000 playing a scratch-off lottery ticket purchased at a College Park 7-Eleven. Story below from the Maryland Lottery:
She and her co-worker each wanted a cup of coffee on their break, a Montgomery County woman told Lottery officials when asked what put her in the 7-Eleven where Lottery luck was waiting. The scratch-off that she found there, the $2,000,000 Gold Rush game, supplied much more of a pick-me-up than coffee ever could.
Her lucky $2,000,000 Gold Rush game debuted in February with five $2 million top prizes and eight $50,000 second-tier winners. Remaining are four top prizes and five of the $50,000 prizes that the lucky lady tells us is a miracle for her family.
“Any single mom with a fistful of bills would see this as a miracle,” she said. “It is such a huge help.”
