FutureStarrMaryland Man Wins Second Lottery Jackpot in Two Months
Baltimore County scratch-off player Brian Clark has been on a winning streak, winning $30,000 playing the Bonus Crossword game last January and then another $50,000 top prize on Crazy 8s this week.
Duane Ketterman, from Millsboro, Delaware, is a power line technician who frequently crosses over into Maryland for work. On these trips he says he gets into the habit of buying lottery tickets for himself.
Most people only get one chance at winning the lottery in their life; however, for one Delaware man it came twice within two months! According to a press release from the Maryland Lottery, powerline technician Duane Ketterman frequently crosses over into neighboring Maryland and purchases lottery tickets on his trips; his luck ran out in early July when he won $18,000 playing one of Maryland's Racetrax games.
Last weekend, he won $30,785 playing that same game with a bonus multiplier that multiplied his prize five times. His Trifecta numbers - 3, 11 and 12 - were chosen at random as they drove through Queen Anne's County on vacation with his family.
When he won, he couldn't believe it so he added a bonus multiplier to his ticket, multiplying the prize five times. Now with over $30,000 in pocket and plans for savings, this money is set aside for when things get tough.
Though his recent win may seem too good to be true, 43-year-old Ketterman from Millsboro, Delaware is just delighted that luck has smiled upon him. Ketterman works as a powerline technician and commutes into Maryland daily; thus, he gets into the habit of buying lottery tickets while on his trips.
He has been buying lottery tickets at a gas station in Stevensville, Maryland since 2009 when his wife bought one there. Additionally, he has won some other prizes like $23,799 and $31,000 on Maryland's Racetrax game over the past couple years.
Ketterman has never won the lottery before in his life, but this experience serves as a reminder that good luck can go a long way. Hopefully, the money will help him and his wife cover any unexpected expenses in the future.
Lucky lottery player Duane Ketterman from Delaware hit it big again within two months, tripling his winnings. Playing Racetrax in Baltimore last week with a bonus multiplier number added by Ketterman for $30,785 in cash!
The 43-year-old said he often drives into Maryland for work and has a routine that includes buying lottery tickets. While on vacation last week with his family, he stopped at Racetrax convenience store and randomly selected three Trifecta numbers; 3, 11 and 12.
He added the bonus multiplier number to his ticket, multiplying it five times, and won $28,785 on one prize. Although they don't plan to use the money right away, they will save it for a rainy day.
It's not the first time a double lottery win has occurred in America. Earlier this year, an Indiana man won $1 million on Hoosier Lottery's Cash Spectacular game twice within three months.
On the other hand, a woman in Delaware recently won $400,000 despite odds of winning twice being one in 116,808. She first won $100,000 with her $100K Ultimate Cash instant ticket, then decided to purchase three $30 Serious Money tickets on her way home.
She attributed her victory to an intuitive sense she had about her numbers before placing the second bet. According to lottery officials, she used her birthdate 72782 as motivation when selecting numbers for this bet.
Another instance of a double lottery win occurred in North Carolina, when a man accidentally purchased another jackpot ticket with the same numbers as his initial bet despite odds being one in 1,813,028, according to the state's lottery website. He kept this second winning ticket hidden away on a shelf in his garage until later retrieving it.
In October, a South Carolina woman won the Mega Millions jackpot - though she remains anonymous. Estimates placed the prize at an impressive $1 billion and she elected to take a lump sum payment rather than annuitizing it.
Most people believe winning the lottery is a once-in-a-lifetime experience, so it came as an unexpected blessing when Delaware man Michael Smith doubled his lottery wins two months in a row!
Duane Ketterman is a powerline technician who frequently crosses the Maryland-Delaware state line to do his job. On these trips, he purchased lottery tickets and his investment paid off early July with an $18,000 prize on one of Maryland Lottery's Racetrax games. This weekend, Ketterman won even bigger with a $30,785 Prize Trax prize which was enhanced by the Bonus feature.
The Maryland Lottery recently announced a prize worth $4 million that was the result of an unusual combination: picking the winning number at random and using the bonus multiplier to multiply their earnings five times. According to their press release, this prize will be paid out in monthly installments over 25 years.
Ketterman said he "can't believe" he won the second jackpot in two months. Ketterman promised that all of the lottery prize money will be put to good use, adding that it had been an incredible journey.
In the meantime, here's wishing him luck and good health!
