Wins Logo Hunt Promotion Grand Prize
When Cecil Reddick’s sister told him that she had something to show him on the computer Wednesday evening, he was a little concerned. Little did he know that what he was about to see next would change his life: Cecil was the Maryland Lottery’s $250,000 grand-prize winner for the $2 Million Logo Hunt Promotion.
“I couldn’t believe it,” the 57-year-old told Lottery officials. “I thought it was a joke. I even called my other sister and had her look it up on her computer to make sure it was really true.”

The Baltimore truck driver hasn’t decided what he is going to do with all of his winnings, but he knows he will take his mom out to a nice dinner for her upcoming 80th birthday. He would also like to put some of his winnings into savings. Cecil, who only submitted two entries, was lucky enough to have been randomly selected from more than 63,000 entries.
The $2 Million Logo Hunt Promotion ran from February 27 through April 1, with the drawing taking place on April 10. Throughout the promotion, Lottery players randomly received one of three Lottery logos on their ticket. After collecting all three logos on non-winning tickets, players mailed them in for the chance to win cash prizes. In addition to Cecil’s $250,000 prize, other big winners include Larry Hunter from Camp Springs who won $100,000, Gail Dorsey from Laurel who won $50,000 and 50 other Maryland Lottery players who won $1,000 each.
