$250,000 Win One of Three Prizes on Same Day

Richard Taylor’s wife, Lisa, is determined to win the Ravens Cash Fantasy Internet promotion $1 million prize – so much so that she purchased an entire book of tickets as a Christmas gift for him.  The gift produced almost $400 and, with his winnings, Richard purchased more Ravens Cash Fantasy scratch-offs.  This extra set of tickets, he would discover later, included the best Christmas gift he’d ever received.

While conducting his Lottery transaction – cashing in the winners and buying those additional Ravens Cash Fantasy tickets – Richard began his day-long streak of Lottery luck with a Keno win and a Pick 3 win.  Pleased with his early successes, Richard took his new Ravens Cash Fantasy tickets home to scratch with Lisa.  She was out of the room for a moment, though, when he got to ticket number 35.  When his scratching revealed a $250,000 win, Richard didn’t know what to do.  “I started screaming for my wife,” he said.

“The first thing that came to my mind was to do the responsible thing and pay the electric bill,” Richard said. However, he also plans to sell his house on the Chesapeake and build a brand new cabin on eight acres of property.

Richard, who has owned a construction business for 23 years, enjoys playing all Lottery games, especially Pick 3.  The winning ticket was purchased at the Crisfield Oceanic, located at 55 Richardson Avenue in Crisfield. The Ravens Cash Fantasy game still has two $250,000 instant top-prizes remaining.  Players can enter to win $1 million, and Ravens-themed prizes, by entering the Internet promotion at mdlottery.com/ravens.

    I’m pretty sure you shouldn’t be wasting your money trying to “win the big one” if you have so many money issues.  If you saved up the money you waste on the lottery I’m sure that would help pay for things right there!  Shame on you for trying to bring this couple down for winning when it’s all purely luck!

    419lee: Winning tickets are distributed randomly throughout an entire game. If the average chance of winning a prize is 1:4, this does not mean there is an automatic winner within every four consecutive tickets. There is no pattern as to where winning tickets will occur. Just as the possibility of purchasing a winning ticket exists, it is also possible to buy multiple tickets back-to-back without receiving a winner at all. Like all Lottery games, scratch-off results are purely the luck of the draw and are simply a matter of random chance. In addition, the odds on the back of the ticket are the ‘overall odds,’ which is best described as the ratio of winning tickets to non-winning tickets from all tickets printed for the game.

    Congratulations on your win.  Because you have obviously worked hard enough to have owned your own business and to have been able to have purchased a home, you have won a reward for all of your hard work.  So enjoy it with your family and friends. Good luck to you.
