A Maryland woman won a lottery for the third time in about three years.
The 61-year-old player from Montgomery County recently bought two $5 Lucky scratch-off tickets at Talbert’s Ice & Beverage Service in Bethesda.
The first ticket didn’t hit, but the second landed her the game’s top prize of $50,000.
That alone would be amazing, but it’s actually the third time she’s won a $50,000 lottery prize at that store, according to Maryland Lottery officials.
In August of 2018, she won $50,000 Bonus Cash. The following October, she did it again playing Cash Craze Doubler.
The retired housekeeper said she was shocked to win for a third time.
“I just didn’t believe it, again!” she told lottery officials.
“People play every day and not win.”
“It’s amazing that I won three times.”
She plans to use the money for some much-needed home improvements, she told lottery officials.
