A Waldorf retiree having coffee with his friends at their local gathering place sweetened his day by adding fun and games to his beverage purchase. The 69-year-old bought four Maryland LotteryFamily Feudscratch-offs and won $50,000!

“I usually do not play scratch offs,” said the lucky winner. “I am aPick 3andPick 4kind of guy.” He plays his regular numbers daily and plays random numbers when the mood hits him. On his lucky morning, the Charles County resident won $5 on the first instant ticket and the top prize of $50,000 on the second one!

“I really never thought I could win $50,000 on a scratch-off!” said the happy winner. “I will enjoy being retired with this extra cash on hand.”

He always purchases hisPick 3andPick 4tickets from the same retailer, Charles Station located at 3030 St. Charles Parkway in Waldorf. The Charles County Lottery retailer wins, too, for selling a winning top-prize scratch-off in the $5 game. Charles Station earns a $500 bonus from the Lottery.

TheFamily Feudgame, which launched in April 2017, still has two $50,000 top prizes remaining and thousands of other prizes ranging from $5 to $5,000.
