The 47-year-old cook, who was not named by Maryland Lottery officials, also won $ 1,000 earlier this year and $ 10,000 the year before.
He picked up his latest winning ticket, $ 100,000 Lucky, at a Walmart in Dundalk, lottery officials said
Wednesday. He immediately scanned it at the lottery kiosk and learned he was a winner, but assumed it was a small prize. He later scratched it and discovered it was $ 100,000.
“I was shocked,” he told lottery officials.
The lucky winner has worked as a cook for the past 20 years and has no plans to retire any time soon, lottery officials said in a statement. He told them the money will be used to purchase a rental property.
The $ 100,000 Lucky scratch-off game has 61 remaining top prizes, according to the Maryland Lottery
