Temple Hills Housekeeper Claims a Tidy Scratch-off Prize

News Release, Maryland Lottery

Wins $50,000 scratching $2,000,000 Fortune game   

A Temple Hills woman who is always smiling flashed a $50,000 winning grin when she entered the Maryland Lottery’s Winner’s Circle to celebrate her $50,000 scratch-off win.

Housekeeping is her profession, but playing Maryland Lottery instant tickets is her favorite pastime. The 55-year-old scratches an instant ticket after dinner each night when her two kids are asleep and the house is quiet.

“I like to play the games when I can relax, when things are peaceful,” she said. That peace she so relishes in her Prince George’s County home didn’t last long once she began scratching a $2,000,000 Fortune instant ticket, however. “I got a little louder than I should have,” she said, “but it was $50,000!”

This big winner in the $30 game will complete a home improvement project with her prize. “I’ll be very happy to get this done finally. We all will.”

The $2,000,000 Fortune game debuted in February 2017 and continues to offer scratch-off players a shot at its sole remaining $2,000,000 top prize and one last $50,000 winning scratch-off. The instant ticket that turned a Temple Hills home upside down this week hailed from Oxon Hill Citgo at 6104 Oxon Hill Road in Oxon Hill.

The Southern Maryland Chronicle is a local, small business entrusted to provide factual, unbiased reporting to the Southern Maryland Community. While we look to local businesses for advertising, we hope to keep that cost as low as possible in order to attract even the smallest of local businesses and help them get out to the public. We must also be able to pay employees(part-time and full-time), along with equipment, and website related things. We never want to make the Chronicle a “pay-wall” style news site.

To that end, we are looking to the community to offer donations. Whether it’s a one-time donation or you set up a reoccurring monthly donation. It is all appreciated. All donations at this time will be going to furthering the Chronicle through hiring individuals that have the same goals of providing fair, and unbiased news to the community. For now, donations will be going to a business PayPal account I have set-up for the Southern Maryland Chronicle, KDC Designs. All business transactions currently occur within this PayPal account. If you have any questions regarding this you can email me at davidhiggins@southernmarylandchronicle.com

Thank you for all of your support and I hope to continue bringing Southern Maryland the best news possible for a very long time. — David M. Higgins II
