This man won the Maryland lottery for the second time in two months


Powerline technician Duane Ketterman regularly crosses the state line and buys lottery tickets on his trips to work in Maryland, According to a news release from the Maryland Lotteries.
One ticket in Illinois won the second-largest Mega Millions jackpot of nearly $1.34 billion

Katerman’s purchase first paid off in early July, when he won $18,000 in one of the Maryland Lottery’s Racetracks games.

Last weekend, on a family trip to Queen Anne’s County, Maryland, Ketterman won again, claiming $30,785 in another racetracks game.

“I couldn’t believe I won the first time around,” Ketterman told lottery officials Tuesday while claiming his prize in Baltimore, according to the release. “So, when I saw it, I was stunned.”

The 43-year-old Millsboro, Delaware, resident chose his winning numbers at random, the release said. He came to know about his victory when his family stopped for breakfast.

According to the release, Ketterman said, “I checked the ticket on my lottery app and after a moment showed my wife to wrap my head around it.” “She was as surprised as I was. Even more, even.”

Katerman has no immediate plans for his unexpected victory, hoping to put him away for a rainy day.

“Something will happen, good or bad,” he said, “and we’ll have it to help us handle it.”
