Fallston woman hits Powerball twice in seven years

Maureen FlemingA stop for gas and a cup of coffee gave Maureen Fleming, an account executive and mother of three, her second big Powerball prize in seven years.

She managed to win $50,000.

The Harford County resident tried her luck at the Royal Farms store located at 1915 Belair Road in Fallston. She decided to buy a $4, quick-pick ticket for the February 10 drawing and added it to her purchase. A few days later, Maureen checked her Powerball numbers to see if she had won.

“At first glance, I knew I had won something because I had four numbers and the Powerball,” she said. “Initially, I thought I had just won $500.”

The loyal player scanned her winning ticket at a local Maryland Lottery retailer while getting ice cream with her youngest son. The ticket checker told her to head straight to Maryland Lottery headquarters to claim her prize. This win tops her previous record Powerball prize of $10,000 she won in 2011.

The lucky 52-year-old said that although she has no definite plans for her windfall, she might start planning her dream trip to Hawaii.

“I hope the next time I’m here, it’ll be to claim that big Powerball jackpot worth millions,” she said.

Maureen’s winning numbers for February 10 were 1, 13, 27, 41, and Powerball 20. She was just one number shy of taking home a $184 million jackpot prize.

The Powerball jackpot has continued its steady roll and sits at $348 million for the Wednesday, March 7, drawing. The cash option is $207.4 million.
