Perry Hall gas station sells winning, $50K Md. Lottery scratch-off

MD LotteryA Bel Air man described to Maryland Lottery officials two encounters with good fortune he experienced on Monday morning.

First, he discovered a conveniently located restroom at a lottery retailer followed by a $50,000 win on a $2,000,000 Fortune scratch-off.

The Harford County salesman was halfway to work when he decided a pit stop was in order.

“One too many cups of coffee, I guess,” he said.

The Perry Hall BP gas station appeared at just the right moment. The 49-year-old father of three spotted the instant ticket vending machine as he headed back to his car.

“I play scratch-offs every once in a while, and all of my recent tickets have been the $2,000,000 Fortune game,” he said. Picking out two of the $30 tickets, Monday’s winner was shocked when he discovered his $50,000 prize.

“When the cashier confirmed the prize for me he gave me a high-five. It was a great moment.”

The $50,000 win wasn’t the end of his luck. In all of the excitement, he almost forgot to play his second instant ticket.

“The $50,000 blew me away,” he said. “But when the other ticket gave me $100 more, it was just astounding.”

Making Christmas extra special for his kids and then super-sizing an already-planned family vacation next year is where the lucky winner will direct his $50,000 prize. His lucky station, Perry Hall BP, is located at 8809 Belair Road.
