Stocking stuffed with $10 scratch-off leads to top-tier win

King Size BingoThe New Year’s Eve confetti had barely settled when a Maryland Lottery scratch-off win gave an Edgewater couple a new reason to celebrate. The couple of nearly four years found a $150,000 jackpot-winning scratch-off in the stockings they exchanged this holiday.

“It’s a beautiful way to start the New Year,” said the 47-year-old man.

The area design engineer and his girlfriend had just returned home after celebrating the holidays with family members. The Anne Arundel County residents were so tired that they put off exchanging their own gifts until New Year’s Day.

“We had exchanged stockings and were both scratching our tickets when I noticed that he was pacing,” said the 43-year-old girlfriend. Shortly after, he asked her to verify what he was seeing – that they had won the $150,000 top prize on a $10 King Size Bingo scratch-off. After they had a retailer confirm the win, they experienced a combination of relief and euphoria.

“We did the happy dance and then ran out of the store,” she said. “The win really just came at the best time for us.” They plan to use the jackpot prize to improve their home and contribute to their savings accounts.

Their lucky ticket came from the Royal Farms #056 at 301 Londontown Road in Edgewater.
