Claims $33,000 top prize on Triple Tripler game
The retired Pikesville resident was out enjoying his routine five miles of daily exercise and stopped at the X-press Mart in Pikesville. He saw and bought the $3 scratch-off, which just went on sale in Maryland stores last week. To his surprise, he revealed a $33,000 top-prize winner! Pick 4 is the favorite Lottery game of this New York middle school teacher who retired after 30 years in the classroom.
The 65-year-old said he is not sure yet how he will spend his prize, which is the first one claimed out of six top prizes on the ticket. His lucky retailer, the X-press Mart at 200 Reisterstown Road in Pikesville, will receive a $330 bonus from the Lottery for selling the top-prize scratch-off.
