Feb. 10 (UPI) -- A Maryland couple said a road trip to visit their grandchildren and a pit stop for food led to their winning a $50,000 lottery prize.

The Glen Burnie couple told Maryland Lottery officials they stopped for a meal at Love's Travel Stop in Cumberland during a trip to visit their grandchildren and they decided to buy some lottery tickets during the stop.


The grandparents selected three Bonus Match 5 tickets, two with their own numbers and one quick quick.

The ticket with quick pick numbers ended up winning a $50,000 prize in the Feb. 5 drawing.

The couple said they have won other, smaller prizes in the past, and plan to continue playing lottery games in the hopes of scoring an even larger jackpot.
