Winning big in the lottery once is rare enough. A Montgomery County man beat the odds — and made us all a little jealous — by racking up his third win last week.
According to the Maryland Lottery, Terry Smallwood of Germantown most recently won $10,000 playing Keno. Not bad for a $15 bet. But it turns out he’s been on a lucky streak. The 53-year-old just won $25,000 playing Pick 4 on Sept. 30, and $50,000 on a scratch-off seven years ago.
His secret is apparently in repetition. Smallwood, who is retired from the U.S. Army, said he plays the same numbers every time. His reaction to the latest win showed some experience.
“I didn’t scream or jump up and down but I began to feel very happy,” he said.
Seeing as how he plans to give the money to help his daughter as she graduates from college, you can’t hate the guy.
