Germantown Retailer Sells Two Million Dollar Lottery Tickets in Three Months
The convenience store at the corner of Germantown Road and Frederick Road has become a very lucky spot for lottery playing folks in 2018. The Washingtonian Convenience Store has sold two $1 million winning Maryland Lottery Scratch-Off Tickets in the last 90 days.
In January, Germantown Pulse reported that an unidentified 34-year-old Germantown woman purchased a $1 million winning scratch-off lottery ticket at the store. Then, on Thursday, March 8, a Gaithersburg man had the same life-changing luck by purchasing another $1 million winning scatch-off ticket at the same location, according to lottery officials.
The unidentified 54-year-old Gaithersburg man is a painter, and he stopped into the Washingtonian Convenience Store, which is owned by Chantilly, Va.-based E&C Mid-Atlantic Ventures, Inc. and bought a $20 Win Big ticket. He started scratching it when he returned home from the store. After revealing a $1 million win, he showed the ticket to his wife. They were both in disbelief.
“Once we realized it was really a $1 million win, we started going crazy,” said the winner’s wife, a nursing home employee. The winner and his wife quickly shared the news with their three children, who were just as excited as their parents. At this point, the winner and his wife, who dubbed themselves “Millionaire Charly” after the family pet, have not decided what they are going to do with their prize, according to lottery officials.
