We’ve all heard stories of some lucky folks who somehow win the lottery not once, but twice and in some cases even more than that! I’ve got to say I haven’t heard of a lottery win where a sister and brother both won on the same type of scratch ticket. The woman, 26 and a single mom of two, says she followed her instincts and her brother’s lead and played a Maryland Lottery scratch-off ticket. He plays often, she not so much, but that didn’t stop both siblings from winning the $100,000 prize!
“I was putting together a shopping list when an image of my brother suddenly popped into my head,” she said. “I decided to give it a try, so I did some research.” Knowing that her brother had won on a $10 scratch-off, the lucky woman checked mdlottery.com to find a $10 game with plenty of top prizes remaining. Diamond 10’s were “calling” her name, so she bought one. She took it home to play just as her brother did on the day he found his $100,000 prize.
The store where she bought it from gets a $1,000 bonus from the Lottery for selling a top-prize winning scratch-off in the game.
