This is one lucky family.
A Maryland man who plays the lottery daily with his mother already won $1,000 two times this year. But this month, the boilermaker from Anne Arundel County turned a $5 ticket into a $50,000 payday.
According to a news release on Wednesday from the Maryland Lottery, the man, who decided to remain anonymous, won the big prize after buying a Lucky Riches instant ticket.
The man and his mother take turns each day buying scratch-offs. Mom has done well, too. Three years ago, she won $100,000, lottery officials said.
For the latest prize, the man’s mother picked out the $5 ticket. He scratched it off and found the instant winner.
The winning ticket was bought at Doc’s F&B Liquors in Glen Burnie, lottery officials said. The retail outlet will receive $500 for selling the winning ticket.
The man said he plans to put his money into a savings account.
The Lucky Riches game went on sale in February with eight top prizes, lottery officials said. Three remain unclaimed.
