Maryland Lottery officials say a second lottery winner has been announced in Salisbury.
We’re told the 27-year-old Hebron woman bought the ticket at the 7-Eleven on Spring Hill Road in Salisbury on Wednesday, after seeing ads for the new Fast Play games.
The $10 game the woman played, called “Lucky Numbers”, starts with a $100,000 top prize that increases each time someone in Maryland plays. The first ticket she bought wasn’t a winner, so she got another ticket with the same result. No prize, but the game’s top prize went up again. She decided to play one more time, which ended up being a winning ticket.
Officials say the woman is not new to big Maryland Lottery prizes. Last year she and her husband collected $250,000 last year on the “$250,000 Rich” scratch-off, and in 2017, won $100,000 on the “$100,000 Super Triple 10” instant ticket.
The 7-Eleven store that sold the winning ticket also won a $1,000 bonus for selling the top-prize winning ticket in the game.
