Nov. 28 (UPI) -- A Maryland man having an exceptionally lucky day ended up winning a turkey raffle and a $100,000 lottery jackpot on the same day.
Michael Alejandro, 28, of Rock Hall, told Maryland Lottery officials he was left feeling lucky when he won the last available turkey in a raffle, so he bought a $100,000 Winter Winfall instant ticket from the Royal Farms store in Chestertown.
The ticket won Alejandro a $15 prize, which he decided to invest into buying another of the same ticket, which ended up being a $100,000 top prize winner.
"I'm not going to party and blow all of the money," Alejandro said.
He said he is considering using his newfound wealth to buy a house.
