A Maryland mother has won $50,000 in the first scratch-off lottery ticket she has ever bought, officials say.
Nichole Balsoma of Glen Burnie, outside of Baltimore, won the prize after deciding to opt for an energy drink over coffee one day for her morning beverage, according to the Maryland Lottery.
"Nichole ended up visiting Royal Farms #016 located at 6901 Ritchie Highway North in Glen Burnie instead of a local coffee shop. She decided to use her debit card for an energy drink and, one a whim, spent $20 in cash to buy a $20 Million Dollar Mega Multiplier instant ticket," Maryland Lottery said in a statement.
