According to The Baynet, the 83-year-old retired electrician won his biggest Lottery prize when he stopped to fill his gas tank on August 15 at a Wawa store in Charlotte Hall. The $5 Big Miney Double ticket that the retired electrician bought that same day delivered one of the game’s progressive jackpots, which was $117,175.

The retired electrician said that he could not believe that he won and have shown the result to his wife and son to confirm. The retired electrician chose to remain anonymous and go by the name ‘Johnny Carson.’

The retailer that the retired electrician bought his ticket, The St. Mary’s County will receive a $1,000 bonus from the lottery for selling a FAST PLAY ticket paying a prize of $100,00 or more.
