Mother’s Day Gift Leads to Cruise VacationFriday, June 3rd, 2011
Nottingham Woman Wins Cruise for Cash Prize
A very excited Maggie Bach came into Lottery Headquarters to claim the Caribbean cruise vacation she won on the Cruise for Cash scratch-off. For Mother’s Day, the 48-year-old received $200 worth of scratch-off tickets from her daughter. The Cruise for Cash ticket turned out to be the ultimate gift. Maggie, who has never been on a cruise, was very happy to win and called her daughter immediately with the news. The lucky winner continues to share the gift with her family. “I’m taking my mom on the cruise,” she said.
“I was getting so tired from scratching all of those tickets that I almost stopped,” she said. “The only one left was the Cruise for Cash ticket.” Maggie continued, “I decided to scratch it anyway and here I am now.” Maggie’s daughter purchased the winning Cruise for Cash scratch-off from Giant #103, located at 6626 N. Ritchie Hwy in Glen Burnie.
Partnering with Royal Caribbean International, the Lottery launched Cruise for Cash in January. The $5 scratch-off is the first of its kind for the Maryland Lottery and features seven $50,000 instant top prizes and 31 instant seven-night cruise vacations for two, departing from Florida with a premium ocean view balcony stateroom; deluxe premium hotel accommodations for two for the night prior to cruise departure, $1,000 onboard credit and $500 spending money.
