A Maryland woman won her third $50,000 lottery prize from Talbert's Ice & Beverage Service.
The woman is a 61-year-old retired housekeeper who plans to put the money toward home improvements.
"People play every day and not win. It's amazing that I won three times," she told lottery officials.
A 61-year-old woman in Maryland won her third $50,000 lottery prize — from the same store.
About two weeks ago, she purchased two $5 Lucky scratch-off tickets at Talbert's Ice & Beverage Service in Bethesda, according to a Maryland Lottery press release. The first one turned out to be a dud, the release says, but the second one gave her a $50,o00 prize.
In 2018, she won the $50,000 prize twice. This new prize marks her third win.
"I just didn't believe it, again!" the woman, a retired housekeeper, told lottery officials. "People play every day and not win. It's amazing that I won three times."
The woman scratched off the winning ticket in the car outside the store. After winning the third time, she was "she was surprised and in shock" and called her best friend, the release says.
"When she told me, I was so happy for her," the best friend told lottery officials. "It was hard to believe that she won $50,000 again."
She will put the money toward home improvements, the release says.
