Martinsburg man hits it big with $50k Powerball win purchased in Hagerstown

29 March 2024- It’s raining Powerball prizes in Maryland! Although the rising jackpot remains elusive, there are plenty of happy Powerball winners such as Glenn Sellman from West Virginia and an anonymous Howard County woman. Each get to celebrate winning a $50,000 third-tier prize.

Glenn found his winning ticket in Hagerstown. The Martinsburg resident travels a lot and often finds himself in Maryland and other places within the tristate area. On a recent trip, he stopped at AC&T #130, a travel center located at 11564 Hopewell Road in Hagerstown.

The Berkeley County man purchased one $2 ticket using the exact numbers that he always plays. Interestingly enough, those numbers are from a winning Powerball quick-pick ticket from a year ago. He’s used those numbers ever since and now gets to claim a second and much bigger prize.

The retired construction worker bought his lucky ticket on March 24 for the Monday drawing. The following night, after the drawing, Glenn scanned his ticket and couldn’t believe what he was seeing! The Lottery terminal instructed him to “See Lottery.” Once the excitement hit, he quickly left the store and shared his fantastic news with family members.

The happy winner plans to use his windfall to take care of his four children.

The second $50,000 winner hails from Ellicott City. The anonymous player won with a $2 quick-pick ticket purchased at 40 West BP gas station located at 8720 Baltimore National Pike in Ellicott City.

Many players have their eyes on the next Powerball drawing set for Saturday, March 30. The estimated jackpot annuity is $935 million with an estimated cash option of $449.7 million. This is the fifth largest jackpot in Powerball history.
