Waldorf Man Wins $50,000 on Sweet Riches Scratch-off
Even though the holidays are over a month away, 21-year-old student Jordan Frierson already has a reason to celebrate. He won $50,000 playing a Sweet Riches scratch-off, a holiday-themed ticket which launched last week.
During the Ravens game a couple weeks ago, Frierson had purchased and scratched several. “My mom and I like to buy tickets when they first come out,” said Jordan.
His mother, who accompanied him to Lottery headquarters, was obviously overjoyed for her son. “I was so excited for him when he showed me the ticket. I’ve been playing for years, but never won anything like this!” she said. “I was in shock,” Frierson said. “When do you really win this kind of money?”
Frierson attends The College of Southern Maryland and wants to use the winnings to pursue a career in the culinary arts. The winning ticket was purchased at BJ’s Wholesale Club located at 1000 St. Nicholas Drive in Waldorf.
