The ticket was purchased from a store in Laurel and the youngster was left stunned when he won the prize.

The winner, who hasn’t been identified, told Maryland Lottery: “I was confused and surprised at the same time. I really didn’t know that I was a winner.”

There are more than 776,000 prize-winning scratchcards in circulation and the odds of winning a prize is 1 in 3.77.

This means that the lottery player defied odds of three million to one.

A series of big lottery wins have hit the headlines in recent weeks.

Solomon Garens, 45, scooped a huge $1million prize after he bought a ticket when he stopped at a RaceTrac gas station in Florida.

He told iHeart that he stopped for a water and restroom break as he was drained from a long day on the road.

He decided to buy a Gold Rush Limited Scratch-Off ticket.

He told the Florida Lottery: “When I saw the million-dollar prize, I couldn’t believe it.”

Solomon, who was traveling from Ohio, chose to receive his winnings as a one-time payment and drove four hours to Florida Lottery Headquarters to grab their winnings.

The Gold Rush Limited Scratch-Off is a $20 game that launched in September 2021.

The odds of winning a prize is one in 2.65. There are 32 top prizes of $5million and 100 prizes of $1million.

The tickets are filled with thousands of prizes, ranging from $1,000 to $100,000.

Earlier this month, Duane Ketterman, from Delaware, won $30,785 when he bought a Racetrax ticket in Baltimore, Maryland.

It was his second win in a matter of weeks.

Robert Hamilton, of Indianapolis, Indiana, won $1million twice in just three months.

He took his first prize home in April after winning on the Hoosier Lottery’s $120million Cash Spectacular scratch-off game.

Lottery officials said that the chances of Hamilton winning the $1 million top prize is roughly one in two million, CBS reports.
