According to Maryland Lottery officials, the lucky ticket was purchased at 7-11 on Sundays Ln. in Frederick on Monday.
David Cline, a lifelong Middletown resident and avid Lottery player, purchased some scratch-offs that day and took them outside the store to scratch.
Cline said while scratching 'The Price is Right' ticket he revealed something he hadn't seen before...a $50,000 prize.
After getting good advice from a friend, the State Highway Administration employee told Maryland Lottery officials he's going to pay off his debt with his winnings before he celebrates.
Cline is the second Middletown resident to win a big Lottery prize in just over a month. In February, a 34-year-old anonymous Middletown man claimed a $1-million Powerball prize.
