Zhi Qiang claims his $100,000 Top Prize.
Baltimore County man wins Double Cash $100,000 Top Prize
There is nothing like going to the grocery store and leaving with a winning $100,000 scratch-off ticket. That’s exactly what happened to Zhi Qiang Yu while shopping for groceries with a long-time friend. Zhi Qiang Yu scratched his Double Cash ticket before leaving the store and knew immediately that he won the $100,000 top prize!
His first reaction was disbelief. “I was in shock,” the winner said. Yu’s friend and his daughter, who were by his side when he won, came with him to celebrate his good fortune at Lottery headquarters. Both of them were equally shocked when they learned about Zhi Qiang Yu’s news.
This single man, who doesn’t have any children, is eager to use his winnings to go on a vacation to China. The lucky ticket was purchased at the Safeway #1657, located at 10335 Reisterstown Road in Owings Mills.
