Two $250,000 top-prizes remain on ticket
A couple of Harford County Ravens fans still have a reason to smile despite the team’s heartbreaking loss to the Redskins last Sunday. After purchasing several Ravens Cash Fantasy scratch-offs for the first time, the couple learned that one of their tickets was worth the $250,000 top prize.
The husband, an Amtrak employee, bought his big winner after getting a haircut last Friday. He knew that some of his friends had been lucky with the Ravens-themed ticket and decided to see what the hullabaloo was for himself.
It was the man’s wife that actually scratched the ticket later at home. “I was on the phone with my daughter when I saw that we had won $250,000,” she said. “I started waving it at my husband so he could check.”
The Ravens Cash Fantasy second-chance contest also served as encouragement for him to choose the ticket. “There are some pretty great prizes,” he said. “From the season tickets for life to the club seats, they’re all something I would want to win.” Enter the second-chance at mdlottery.com/ravens.
The couple plans to pay bills, clear their mortgage and do some traveling with their winnings. The winning ticket was purchased at Tobacco Outlet at 3101 Emmorton Road in Abingdon. There are still two Ravens Cash Fantasy $250,000 top-prizes remaining.
Silver Spring Woman Claims $50,000 Scratch-off Top Prize
A Montgomery County woman visited Lottery headquarters last week to collect a scratch-off prize she had won after trusting her gut. The Silver Spring native, an occasional Lottery player, had stopped in at a wine shop to get specific scratch-offs when something caught her eye. The Triple Payout scratch-off she bought paid itself off with a $50,000 top prize.
“It just popped out at me. There are a couple of games that I really like, that I’ve had luck with, but for some reason I thought I should give Triple Payout a try,” she told officials. “I can’t explain it. Something just told me that getting this game would be a good move.” The sudden gut feeling to buy the ticket resulted in the purchase of a lifetime.
Our winner, an in-house caregiver, took the ticket home and checked it with her boyfriend. “I went ballistic when I saw the dollar amount under my match,” she said. “My boyfriend was shocked into silence, but I was yelling and screaming.”
The winner told Lottery officials that the prize money will go into savings. When prodded a little further, the woman also added with a smile, “Maybe a nice vacation, too.” The Lottery retailer with a special on “gut feelings” was Wheaton Winery, 2211 University Boulevard in Silver Spring.
Rey Magsino started the holiday season off with a bang
Wins top prize on Sweet Riches scratch-off, two top-prizes remain
Baltimore City resident Rey Magsino can scratch ‘Win the Lottery’ off of his holiday wish list. That’s because the 50-year-old construction inspector accomplished the task last week, scratching off a Maryland Lottery Sweet Riches holiday scratch-off to reveal a $50,000 top prize.
Magsino initially purchased the ticket when he had stopped to get gas, choosing the ticket because of the holiday theme and color. “It’s green, just like money,” he explained. He scratched the ticket in the store shortly after the purchase, but played it cool when he saw the prize. “I was happy, but tried to keep it to myself,” said Magsino.
He plans to use the winnings for some much-needed home improvements and to treat his family. The winning ticket was purchased at J & J Grocery on Leeds Avenue in Baltimore. Magsino advised other players to keep playing. “You could be the lucky one,” he said.
Military mom wins Aces High top prize
A Frederick woman and her husband were the Maryland Lottery’s first claimants at Lottery headquarters this week after holding on to a winning $50,000 scratch-off since Thursday. The lucky winner breathed a sigh of relief when she was handed her completed claims paperwork early Monday morning and said, “Ok, I’m starting to believe it now.”
The 36 year-old, who chose to remain anonymous, told Lottery officials that she rarely buys tickets and decided to purchase one on a whim last week. “I was at the store and had an extra five dollar bill in my pocket,” she said. “I looked at the ticket display and the Aces High scratch off stood out to me.” After purchasing her ticket, the winner scratched her ticket in the car. The mother-of-two added, “I fully intended to throw the ticket away right after I scratched it, but I saw that I had won and sat there stunned for a few minutes.”
While they don’t have big plans for their new found money, the US military official and her graduate student husband plan to add a deck on to their new home and put money into savings. They are also discussing the amount of money they plan to tithe to their church.
The winning ticket was purchased at 7-11 at 19235 Watkins Mill Road in Gaithersburg.

Lottery and Gaming Control Agency, The National Council on Problem Gambling and McGill University combine efforts to discourage Lottery tickets as gifts for underage children
Results from recent studies show a growing number of high school students reportedly receive one or more lottery tickets or scratch cards as gifts. This, coupled with the growing concern about adolescent problem gambling, prompted the Maryland Lottery and Gaming Control Agency, the National Council on Problem Gambling, the International Center for Youth Gambling Problems and High-Risk Behaviors at McGill University along with dozens of other lottery corporations around the globe to collaborate this holiday season to increase public awareness about the impact of giving lottery products as gifts to minors.
“We know that playing the lottery at a young age is inappropriate and can increase the potential for problem gambling later in life,” said Dr. Jeffrey Derevensky, co-director of the International Centre for Youth Gambling Problems and High-Risk Behaviors at McGill University (Canada). “We welcome the collaborative efforts of Maryland Lottery and Gaming Control Agency to help make everyone aware of this issue, as together we can make a difference in preventing underage gambling and gambling problems.”
This year, the Maryland Lottery and Gaming Control Agency is encouraging players to give responsibly. When giving a lottery product as a gift, please be sure to keep the person’s age in mind.
