A Maryland man said advice from a gas station clerk led to a literal dream come true when he won a lottery jackpot.
"No one has won today, so it could be you my friend!" Maldonado recalled the voice saying.
He said he turned around and discovered the origin of the voice: the gas station clark.
Maldonado heeded the clerk's advice and bought two Hot Riches scratch-off tickets. The first was a $5 winner and the second was a $50,000 grand prize winner.
Maldonado said he had recently dreamed of winning a scratch-off lottery jackpot.
"It's crazy to think something can happen like that," he said.
