℞ for Spring Fever: Eastern Shore Pharmacist Wins Second-Chance Cruise

Wednesday, April 20th, 2011

Nancy Edgeworth - Cruise for CashAlthough she’s never been on a cruise before, she’ll be weighing anchor soon. That’s because Cambridge resident Nancy Edgeworth is the latest winner of the Cruise for Cash scratch-off second chance contest. The 45-year-old pharmacist said she’d like to visit the Bahamas, Puerto Rico or St Thomas on the 9-night Caribbean Cruise vacation prize. The lucky winner was just returning from a business trip when she got a phone message from the Maryland Lottery letting her know she had won. “I had just gotten home. I scratched two of the Cruise for Cash scratch-off tickets I had picked up on my way home, and then I heard the message” she said. One of Nancy’s two scratch-off tickets also won a $500 prize.

Partnering with Royal Caribbean International, the Maryland Lottery launched Cruise for Cash on January 10, 2011. The $5 scratch-off features seven $50,000 instant top prizes, as well as 31 instant cruise vacations and a second-chance contest.  Players may enter the contest by mailing in a non-winning Cruise for Cash scratch-off or by entering online at mdlottery.com/cruise.  The second-chance prize includes a nine-night cruise vacation for two, on any one of Royal Caribbean’s cruise ships departing from the Port of Baltimore.  The winner will also receive a $1,000 onboard credit. One drawing will take place each month through July.

      giloy: Thanks for writing in. We get this comment a lot. People living in Baltimore believe all the winners are elsewhere and vice versa. Truth is the geographic locations of our winners are all random. There is no way to predict where the winners will be. However, research tells us that more winners come from areas of the State in which more people are playing. Please take a look at our winners stories. There you’ll see that we have winners from all over the State. In particular, Mary Foust of Joppa, MD just won a 7-night cruise vacation as part of the Cruise for Cash scratch-off.
