Reisterstown Teacher Wins $250K From Maryland Lottery, Officials Say



OCEAN CITY, MD — A Reisterstown man had a stroke of good luck when he got up early and purchased a scratch-off ticket while vacationing in Ocean City recently, according to lottery officials.

The 58-year-old elementary school teacher said he woke up his wife to tell her the good news after buying the ticket at the Acme on Coastal Highway and discovering his windfall.

It was not his first big win — the Reisterstown resident had also won $100,000 playing Racetrax last year, lottery officials reported.

He said he plans to use some of the money for his wife's and his retirement while giving some money discreetly to the couple's adult children.

“It is a nice bonus,” the winner said. “We are at a good point in our lives where we are financially secure. This gives us more security.”

For selling a top-tier ticket, the Acme in Ocean City also received $1,000, officials said.
