    As it turns out, scratch-off tickets can sometimes be a better bet than the roulette wheel. One Frederick man won after leaving a casino where he had won $75. After dropping his mother off, he stopped at the Exxon gas station on Ballenger Creek Pike and bought four scratch-offs with his casino winnings, including one “Emerald 10s” scratch-off, according to the Maryland Lottery.

    The man initially thought he had won $1,000 and was excited to share the news with his family, sending them a photo over text message. His brother pointed out that he had won much more than $1,000. He hadn’t noticed a bonus on the ticket that put his total winnings at $100,000.

    The man has been a regular lottery player since 1989, and $100,000 is the biggest prize he has won. He plans to use the money to install a new roof on his house and for a down payment on a new truck. Some of the money will also go to his grandchildren, one of whom is on the way, and a children’s cancer charity.

    The Exxon station has sold one ticket with a prize of the same value in 2012, but nothing larger than $100,000, an employee at the store said.

    A man from Union Bridge won the second $100,000 prize at Barnes Country Store on Liberty Road. The man particularly enjoys buying scratch-offs during the holiday season and had already won several thousand dollars in scratch-off prizes a few weeks prior to winning the $100,000 prize from “The Money Game.”

    The 55-year-old man lives with his daughter and grandchildren and plans to use most of the money to benefit them. He also wants to travel to his hometown to see his sister.It took a while for the man to believe that he had won, but after it set in, “he just felt happy and didn’t know what to do,” his daughter said, according to the Maryland Lottery.Both stores that sold a winning ticket receive a $1,000 prize as well, according to the Maryland Lottery.
