April 19 (UPI) -- An 89-year-old Maryland man collected a $100,000 lottery prize about a decade after collecting another prize of the same amount.
The Gaithersburg man, who donned a three-piece suit to collect his winnings in Baltimore, told Maryland Lottery officials he bought his $20,000,000 Cash Payout ticket from Steve's Beer, Wine and Deli in Gaithersburg.
"I believed I would win and I did," the man said. "I handed the ticket to the cashier and said, 'I'm a winner, put it in the machine.'"
The machine confirmed the ticket was a $100,000 winner, and the man celebrated by immediately taking money out of a nearby ATM and giving $100 to the clerk who sold him the ticket. He also gave $100 to a friend and fellow lottery player.
The man said he is no stranger to the winner's circle.
"I've been here before after winning $100,000 on another scratch-off over 10 years ago," he said. "But I'm just as excited for this win."
