Grandmas-first-try-at-lottery-game-earns-big-jackpotNov. 16: A Maryland Lottery player who decided to try a game for the first time ended up winning $10,410 with her beginner’s luck.

The 77-year-old Aberdeen woman, who chose the alias “Lucky Grandmom,” told Maryland Lottery officials she used to stick strictly to scratch-off tickets when she felt the urge to play the lottery.

“I usually only play scratch-offs once or twice a week,” she said, “but my friends are all fans of the horses so I decided to give it a try.”

The grandma chose the numbers 3-7-9-4 and placed a $2 Superfecta bet on the Racetrax virtual horse racing game.

The ticket, which the woman bought at the Aberdeen Sunoco gas station, earned her a $10,410 prize.

“I was just shocked, I couldn’t believe it,” she said.

Lucky Grandma said she plans to spend her winnings on paying off bills and buying holiday gifts for her family.
