Superfecta bet brings home the prize
A lucky Silver Spring man was all smiles at Lottery headquarters after finding the perfect combination of horses to bet on in a Feb. 16 Racetrax game. He won $40,757!
The loyal Lottery player purchased a five-draw Superfecta ticket, betting that No. 9, 6, 3 and 11 horses would cross the finish line in that exact order. And on the last of the five races he played, that’s exactly what the horses did! No stranger to winning, the 37-year-old said he also has found big-ticket prizes playing Pick 4.
This time, his lucky Lottery retailer was the Hyattsville Convenience Store in Prince George’s County. For selling a winning Racetrax ticket of $10,000 or more, the store located at 2230 University Boulevard East in Hyattsville will receive a $407.57 bonus from the Lottery. The bonus is equal to 1 percent of the prize.
