Her daughter double-checked her numbers and confirmed she won a total of $50,000.
The retired babysitter said she plans to share her luck with her family. "I have children and grandchildren who are waiting," she said with a smile.
The Lucky Times 10 ticket was purchased at the Clinton Crossings Exxon in Prince George’s County. Lottery officials say two $100,000 top-tier prizes, and two second-tier prizes ranging from $10 to $10,000 remain.
