Maryland Woman Wins $100,000 After Brother Inspired Her to Try Lottery
She couldn't believe it!
A pair of Maryland siblings are sure keeping their winnings in the family after a woman won $100,000 right after her brother.
The 26-year-old of Silver Spring said her brother inspired her to try scratch-off tickets after he won $100,000 earlier this year.
"I was putting together a shopping list when an image of my brother suddenly popped into my head," she told Maryland Lottery officials.
She knew her brother had won the money on a $10 ticket so she searched online to choose her own.
She decided on a Diamond 10s scratch-off and bought one at a local liquor store.
"There were 22 numbers to scratch after I'd revealed my five lucky number,” she said. “I was only on No. 3 when I found the $100,000 match. I was stunned at first, but I knew in my bones that it couldn't be true.”
It was true, however.
A cashier at the Long Branch Beer & Wine in Silver Spring confirmed she’d won the cash.
