Feb. 8 (UPI) -- A Maryland woman has good reason to consider herself "very lucky" after collecting a $50,000 prize from a scratch-off lottery ticket -- her fourth big lottery jackpot.
The 71-year-old Elkton, Cecil County, woman told Maryland Lottery officials the $50,000 prize she won from a Bankroll Buck$ ticket purchased from ACME Markets in Elkton came just one month after she won $10,000 from another scratch-off ticket.
The woman previously collected jackpots worth $100,000 and $50,000 from scratch-off tickets in 2019.
"I've won a few times in the past, and every time I win I feel very lucky," the repeat winner said.
The woman said her previous winnings went toward home repairs, including replacing her roof. She said her latest winnings will go toward helping others.
"My husband and I plan to start a scholarship at the college I retired from so that the students who need it can pay for their education," she said.
