BALTIMORE, MD—A Maryland woman has won $1 million in Powerball, the lottery officials announced this week. The woman, who is a self-employed trainer, said that she buys tickets once a week, and usually selects the Powerball and Mega Millions games.

According to the Maryland Lottery, the Howard County resident called her nephew on April 3 after seeing a Powerball ticket with a $1 million jackpot. The woman said that she didn’t expect anything after scanning the tickets, but was happy to see the message instructing her to take the ticket to a Maryland Lottery retailer.

The woman went to the Royal Farms located at at 7136 Montevideo Road in Jessup where she bought the ticket and said aloud, “I just won a million dollars.”

When her trembling hands allowed, she called her husband and children via FaceTime to share the news. “When they answered the call they were worried – I didn’t even realize that I was crying.”

Maryland’s newest millionaire plans to erase business debt, buy a new car, fortify her retirement fund and share her good fortune with the family.
