Marylander's bring home the bacon! Two residents win $45,000 prize

BALTIMORE - Two residents in Carroll County and Montgomery County brought home $45,000 prizes at the Everlasting Million Challenge. 

Eight lucky Maryland Lottery players traveled to Las Vegas from September 7th to 10th to participate in the Everlasting Million Challenge! To enter, Lottery players submitted non-winning Willy Wonka Golden Ticket scratch-off tickets into the My Lottery Rewards program.

A total of 122 participants from Maryland and other lotteries across the country, were playing for the chance to win up to a lifetime prize of $1 million a year. Although no Maryland Lottery winner came home the big winner, Kerry Alexa from Colesville and Zachary “Zak” Brisko from Westminster each won $45,000.

Five of the 122 participants advanced to the second round of the Everlasting Million Challenge Lottery event by revealing an Everlasting Gobstopper message in their envelope during the first round, and two of those winners were from Maryland.

“We were so excited to be a part of this event,” Alexa, who was accompanied by her husband Marty, said. “Opening the Everlasting Gobstopper message, moving on to the second round, and spinning the wheel made for a truly unforgettable experience.”

Brisko, who brought his dad David on the trip, plans to save most of his winnings, but also intends to splurge a little on a vacation and golfing.
