A red-hot scratch-off overflowing with $1 million in Lottery luck brought a St. Mary’s County man to Maryland Lottery headquarters last week.
The 62-year-old claimed the $1 million top prize in the Lucky 777 scratch-off, which still has five $1 million top prizes remaining. He found his lucky $20 instant ticket at St. Mary’s Gas Station located at 23950 Colton Point Road in Clements.
The St. Mary’s County business is an Expanded Cashing Authority Program retailer, which allows it to cash Lottery scratch-offs up to and including $5,000. The busy location offers customers a choice of 50 scratch-off facings. For selling the top-prize scratch-off in the game, St. Mary’s Gas Station earns a $1,000 bonus from the Lottery. This is its biggest winning scratch-off sale to date.
The Lucky 777 game is a member of the Lucky 7 family of games that went on sale May 18. Players can also play $1 Lucky 7s, $2 Lucky 7s Doubler, $5 Lucky 7s Tripler and $10 Lucky 7s Multiplier scratch-offs.
Scratch-off players in the St. Mary’s County community of Clements, Landover Hills in Prince George’s County and Frederick County’s Woodsboro were the biggest Maryland Lottery winners of the past week.
A ticket purchased in Clements scored a $1 million win, while a scratch-off sold in Landover Hills landed $500,000, and another sold in Woodsboro was a $100,000 winner.
In all, Lottery players won or claimed more than $28.9 million in the seven days ending Sept. 13, including 19 tickets worth $10,000 or more that were either sold or claimed during that span. Included in the count are five big Racetrax winners, all of which were unclaimed as of Sept. 14.
The Maryland Lottery Claims Center in Baltimore is open by appointment only. Lottery prizes up to and including $25,000 can be claimed at five of Maryland’s six casinos with no appointment necessary.
