BALTIMORE, MARYLAND — While taking care of laundry chores, this woman decided not to use the dryer. Instead, she wanted to air-dry her clothes. And it turned out to be a decision she could take to the bank!
Sometimes, there’s just something about air-drying your laundry that sets your day off right. Apparently, that is what happened with this woman; however, it had a very huge payout.
According to Maryland Lottery, the 60-year-old woman chose to only go by her nickname, “Mom-Mom.” The woman states she only went to purchase clothes hangers from a nearby store, Food Stop on 4900 Liberty Road.
However, while out on her run, she decided to buy a scratch-ticket, Keno. In addition, on a whim, she included $5 scratcher Hot Riches to the purchase as well. And that one which took her all the way to the d**n bank.
According to the source, Hot Riches is the newest game introduced to Maryland. Reportedly, it commenced on June 25 — and as a show of supreme luck, the woman won the top prize. Apparently, there are only 8 in circulation.
Interestingly, the woman didn’t really expect to win a lot.
Once she started revealing her numbers — same as the matching numbers — she didn’t think too much of it. Actually, the source reports “Mom-Mom” said, “Oh great, I think I made my money back!”
Yet, when she uncovered the jackpot notice, everything changed.
“I still can’t believe this,” says the lucky woman. “I didn’t think this could ever happen to me. This is a great way to start off the weekend!”
Regarding the woman’s good fortune, it seems her luck rubbed off for the store also. The source further reports as follows.
“‘Mom-Mom’ plans to save her windfall to buy something special in the future. Her favorite Lottery retailer, Food Stop at 4900 Liberty Road in Baltimore, is also a winner. Because the store sold a top-prize $50,000 scratch-off in the game, Food Stop earns a $500 bonus from the Lottery. Congratulations to ‘Mom-Mom’ and Food Stop!”
It’s incredible to see so many in the community coming up, even if by lottery winnings. As long as playing isn’t an addiction — and as long as you aren’t playing with bill money, etc. — what’s a couple of bucks, right?
Think of all the money you possibly waste on frivolous purchases anyway. It’s possible you’re $5 from becoming the next millionaire. Sounds like high hopes and dreams, but apparently real people are winning — as you can see.
All in all, what are your thoughts about this woman’s lucky decision? It’s something special how she suddenly decided not to use her dryer — effectively placing her at the right place, at the right time, buying the right ticket.
