Claims $100,000 top-tier prize on Jackpot! instant ticket
A Baltimore County school employee has always enjoyed playing Maryland Lottery scratch-offs with the understanding that he may never “hit it big.” When his Jackpot! scratch-off revealed a $100,000 top prize, the happy Lottery player knew he wanted to use his winnings to benefit others.
The $10 ticket he purchased at the 7-Eleven on York Road in Timonium delivered his first Lottery prize of more than $500. His wife has often teased him about not finding a large prize.
“I look at the Lottery as being the people’s money,” the winner explained to Lottery officials. “Many people put money in to build up jackpots so this is really more for the people than for me.”
The lucky winner is planning to make donations to two organizations special to him, the Fuel Fund of Maryland and the Maryland Food Bank.
“I’d like to do some good with the money,” he said. “I want to help others.”
