Unidentified Pasadena Man Claims $50,000 Powerball Prize; Winning Ticket Sold by the Soda Pop Shop Mart in Glen Burnie
An unidentified Pasadena man happily went to Maryland Lottery headquarters last week to pick up his $50,000 third-tier prize from the Feb. 8 Powerball drawing.
Asked about the details of his brush with Lottery luck, the man said, “It’s nothing special. I just bought a ticket.”
On the day of the drawing, the 63-year-old, who chose not to be identified by lottery officials, bought a $2 quick-pick ticket at the Soda Pop Shop Mart located at 337 Hospital Drive in Glen Burnie.
His winning ticket carried the numbers 17, 35, 49, 50 and 66 with a 6 Powerball, missing the $60 million jackpot by one number.
The lucky winner was the only Marylander to win a third-tier prize in the drawing and only one of eight people nationwide to match four white balls and the red Powerball.
There is no word on what the man plans to do with the newly found fortune.
