Middle River man claims $50,000 Maryland Lottery prize after buying scratch-off in White Marsh

MIDDLE RIVER, MD—A Middle River man made his triumphant return to the winner’s circle this week after finding a $50,000 prize on a Gold X50 scratch-off. This was his first visit since winning $100,000 on a Ravens scratch-off in November 2015.

William Daniels Jr. said the excitement of winning big never gets old.

“When you hit it, you are in disbelief. You want to make sure you are not looking at it wrong.”

The Baltimore County resident used his $100,000 winnings in 2015 to purchase a home and plans to use this prize on another big life event.

“It is going toward paying for my wedding,” William said.

The aircraft assembly employee said he will occasionally buy a scratch-off if he has a few bucks in his pocket. The 31-year-old credits his hairstyle, in part, for this big win. He had long hair back in 2015 for his first win and then wore his hair short until recently, when he began sporting longer locks.

“I’m going to stick with long hair when I play scratch-offs,” he said with a laugh.

The lucky player purchased the Gold X50 winning instant ticket at the 7-Eleven located at 8235 Perry Hall Boulevard in White Marsh.
