OWINGS MILLS - Amber Marshall of Owings Mills had just finished her 16-hour workday as a nurse when she remembered something her mother once told her.

“It had been a long, crazy day made worse because my hand was itching. It just wouldn’t go away,” Marshall said. “I was on a break when I suddenly remembered that my mom once told me that an itchy hand meant money was coming my way. My first thought was the Lottery.”

Luckily, not too far from where she works is a High’s convenience store. Picking out the $10 Money Rush game, she returned to her car to scratch it.

“When I saw the $50,000 match, I was overcome with a feeling of relief,” Marshall admitted. “I was so happy that I started crying right there in the parking lot.” A call to her mom with the news produced the same result. “We were both crying.”

Marshall says she will use her winnings o take care of a few bills and to help her move forward with a business venture she put on hold because of an expensive hurdle.

“Not having the bills to worry about will be nice, but being able to get so much closer to my goal of opening this new business is such a load off of my shoulders.”

Amber’s winning ticket purchased from High’s #020 at 27 Railroad Avenue in Westminster closes is the last of nine $50,000 Money Rush prizes
